The Tiguan earns pats on its back for its comfortable ride and superb road grip.
The same plaudits are earned for being so solidly built and providing a high quality cabin finish.
The Tiguan comes with a three year or 36,000 mile warranty, a three year-36,000 complementary maintenance packages, as well as a five year or 60,000 mile warranty on engine and transmission.
The Tiguan's sparse cabin space at 56.1 cubic feet is around 17 cubic feet less than its principal rivals.
The Tiguan price tag causes a few raised eyebrows on many reviews.
