Smart looking on the outside and attractively finished on the inside, the Volkswagen Tiguan is an excellent choice for families who value style as well as practicality. This SUV comes well equipped too, and offers a fine range of engine choices – including a 4x4 option, which is available with each trim level, starting with the entry-level S grade.
Now in its second generation, the Tiguan is larger than before, providing even more space for occupants in both compartments. The vehicle’s rear seats slide forward and backwards too, allowing for a flexible passenger-cargo balance. Speaking of cargo, this SUV’s 615-litre load space increases to as much as 1,510 litres when rear seats are folded.
For your listening pleasure, an eight-speaker stereo system is included as standard, featuring DAB radio, among other things. AUX, SD, USB and Bluetooth connectivity are all included too, the latter enabling audio streaming and hands-free telephony. All models also come with an eight-inch touchscreen, which – with SE grades and higher – provides intuitive satellite navigation functionality.
All good family cars are safe to drive, and the VW Tiguan is no exception. Awarded a five-star crash test rating by Euro NCAP, a wide range of driver aids are featured. For instance, Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System each work to ensure that loss of traction is negligible.
A five-door body provides straightforward access to the vehicle’s rear passenger compartment and boot. This SUV is crowned with roof rails, making it simple to carry items such as bikes or skiing equipment. As well as being versatile, the Tiguan is very easy on the eye. For instance, it rides on stylish, lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, and features a number of body-coloured fixtures, such as bumpers, door handles and door mirrors. Incidentally, the latter are fitted with integrated indicators, and further illumination includes automatic headlights.
S, SE and SE Navigation trim levels are typically installed with a 1.4-litre 125bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 47.1mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 137g/km. Even more efficient is a 2.0-litre 240bhp diesel unit (available for Tiguan SE L and Tiguan R-Line grades), which returns as much as 60.1mpg, while producing emissions as low as 123g/km. The same unit also delivers optimal performance levels: as much as 500Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 6.3 seconds, while managing up to 44.1mpg.
