Excellent value!

Likes include the solid build quality and sleek, modern looks, esp. on this SE-R-Line. I also like the peppier tune on this 2022, 2.0L engine vs. previous years which I've owned. Here in Denver there is a good selection of real cars that are on dealer lots unlike Subaru, Toyota, Honda. This is a tremendous plus to be able to drive an actual car before you buy it! Dislikes include the fussy, haptic controls on the steering wheel and for the climate controls. Once you get used to them, they are acceptable. They look modern and work well, but I sometimes have to take my eyes off the road to adjust them This AWD car exceeds EPA mileage estimates as did my previous VWs. My car's computer is currently showing 29.5 mpg overall average after 3200 miles of mixed driving (70% hwy.) Some older reviews complain that this car lacks power but I completely disagree. Especially at altitude, the 2022 Tiguan easily outperforms the new Forester. I tested several. Some more likes I just thought of: Beautiful LED, interior ambient lighting can be adjusted for colors and intensity or turned off. Headlights are crisp, white LEDs that light the road nicely without blinding other drivers. The auto-dimming, frameless rear-view mirror also has a compass built in along with Homelink remote.

20k mile review, still a solid VW product!

Likes- solid car, dependable, handling, many driving style options. Dislikes- Expensive oil changes, factory tires, brake wear, Overall- I love Germans cars, had them all.. I opted to upgrade tires to a larger size, 235/60/17 major change in ride quality, handling.. I use 5-30 20k engine oil, as the factory had no choice to meet US EPA thinner oil for MPG. Zero effect on anything. Quieter engine now. 5k oil changes.. 20k is absurd!! My last VW had 300k miles when I sold it. No issues ever. This car will not disappoint, highly recommend.

This is our 2nd Tiguan SEL

Generalmgr, 05/24/2022
2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL R-Line 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
48 of 49 people found this review helpful

We liked the first one so much, a 2019 SEL Premium R Line, that we traded it in on a 2022 SEL. My wife loves loves loves this car. She's not into the tech stuff, she just likes how easy it is to drive and how comfortable it is to ride in while still handling well. She routinely gets over 30mpg on average, including 35+ on the highway. My only complaint is that the ride is just a bit stiffer than I prefer. It was on our 2019 too, and when we replaced the tires we got some with a slightly larger sidewall and that made a world of difference....so we will do the same when the time comes on our 2022. I drive a LOT of rentals when traveling for work, and when I get home and drive this SUV I'm always saying I can't believe how much better I like it than other every other SUV I rent.

2022 SEL R-Line AWD ble ext/Storm gray int

OK so I had a 2019 SE FWD Tiguan with the two tone golden oak interior that I traded in for the 2022 all-wheel-drive SEL RLine… There is no third row, there is air heated and cooled seating controls for the front driver and passenger, there is wave technology where you can just use your hand to wave it in front of the screen to get to the menu you are looking for, you can change the color of the interior lighting which I absolutely love because I’m a freaking toddler, and the fact that I can drive in snow or whatever with this vehicle without the third row seating… Makes me super excited because of SnowMageddon that happened in Texas… I absolutely love this car! It is fun to drive, fuel economy is pretty good, it beautiful in blue with the light gray interior, There are so many safety features I took my niece for her first driving lesson in this car a week after I got it in an empty parking lot and she did fantastic! It is a huge confidence builder for those that question their driving abilities. I love my car, I don’t miss the third row (it’s really not comfortable for adults anyway and with all wheel drive you do not get a third row), I love that the steering wheel has a heated feature because my hands are always freezing #Raynauds, The navigation and all the other features other than the charging that doesn’t go through my cell phone case… I love SUV. This is absolutely my favorite car, I have been a Volkswagen enthusiast since 2008… I feel like this is a grown-up version of all the things I love about VW.

Solid fundamentals but very glitchy electronics

I bought my 2023 Tiguan R in November of 2022. I have over 8000km on it. Engine and transmission have no problems. The Tiguan is used to provide transportation for my disabled wife who cannot manage getting in and out of a regular size car anymore. The road keeping navigation assist technology can be very glitchy with false alarms as can the audio be glitchy. The worst glitch was while driving on the highway, the road keeping system thought my hands were not on the wheel (when they were) and it slammed the brakes on at 60MPH for a brief moment with the cruise control on and me being near no other traffic at all. It looks like VW hasn’t ironed out all of the bugs from the electronics. Heated seats and heated steering wheel are great! Ride comfort is good but we shouldn’t have ordered the 20 inch rims. Ride comfort improves significantly with smaller rims.
