Volkswagen Tiguan (2008–2016)

Last updated 30 November 2018

Decent SUV with diesel automatic option. Comfortable seats. Escape version capable off-road. Optional Park Assist works well. Much better from September 2011 facelift.
Originally had hard ride. 2.0 TDI PD no longer the best. Fuel economy not brilliant.

Introduction

Oh, no, not another 4x4. Are the roads really that bad? What next: an Audi Hiawatha? By my count, the VW Tiguan numbers the 63rd SUV on the UK market. Should you be even remotely interested?

Well, first there's the badge. VW reliability might not be as legendary as it was. But that Beastie Boy medallion still cuts some sway in snobby Surrey suburbs.

Then there's the back seats. Slightly higher than the fronts, Freelander style, giving kids in the back a view forwards, and making them less likely to chuck up down your neck. These seats are also supremely comfortable, centre rear is fine for adults as well as kids and legroom is generous.
