Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

Turbo or not, the power-to-weight ratio of the Tiguan is not high, and the eight-speed automatic transmission can’t help it feel faster. The power is smooth at lower revs when accelerating, as torque is strong as early as 1600 rpm. The Tiguan takes off like a rocket, but at higher revs it runs out of breath.

The eight-speed automatic is tentative about downshifting for acceleration, and in fact seems a bit dull about most needs. The upshifts are crisp, although it’s programmed to short shift a lot (meaning it upshifts early at low revs), to gain fuel mileage.

The ride is easy and the handling competent. It feels softer than before. So does the steering, which is light, and doesn’t seem to get tighter or quicker in Sport mode.

Walk Around

Even though the new Tiguan is extremely angular and the nose is intimidating, a character line running back from the front fender is the only modern touch.

The front (grille, bumpers, fascia) is the same as the full-sized VW Atlas crossover, the only difference being small creases in the hood.

Unlike the Atlas, the Tiguan doesn’t have blocky wheel arches to pose as a tough guy in profile. The window line is low and the rear doors wide. Most crossovers today have a high window line, so the Tiguan clings to some separation here.

Designers got the rear end right. More glass in the liftgate avoids the wedgy look most crossovers have.

Interior Overview

The Tiguan cabin is simple, clean and functional, presented in subdued hues. Comfort in both rows is near the top of the class, firm and supportive, although the padding in the front seats is thin.

The rear seats have exceptional legroom when the sliding rear seat is back. The Tiguan may be larger than before, but three adults in the rear seat will still be a squeeze.

An 8.0-inch center touchscreen dominates attention in SE models and higher. SEL Premium models swap out the center gauges for a 12.3-inch driver information display that’s sharp.

Tiguan S comes with a six-speaker stereo, good for listening to the news. SEL Premium models have a wonderful Fender audio system.

There’s nothing wrong with the durable fabric upholstery in the Tiguan S, but the Tiguan SE adds a synthetic leather that could pass for real, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen that draws attention away from some hard black plastic.

The third row, standard with fwd models and available with awd, isn’t suitable for adults.

The rear liftgate is wide, making loading easier, into a cargo space of 37.6 cubic feet with the rear seats down. That’s a couple of cubic feet less than the Honda CR-V.

Summary

“”

The Volkswagen Tiguan offers convenience in a compact crossover with nice ride and handling. We like the entry-level Tiguan S, though the sound system is lackluster. The fabric upholstery is just fine, and the instrumentation is clean and adequate. But we’re still disappointed in the fuel mileage.
