I have just bought this car. So far I have found it very easy and comfortable to drive. One of the main reasons we bought the car was its five star EuroNCAP safty status and it certainly feels safe when driving.
The 2.0 140 bhp engine is not overly quick but is fast enough to get out quickly at junctions and for overtaking on the motorway.
There is lots of room in the cabin and rear seats. However, the boot is not very big for a car of its size (but not that different from rival cars).
The drive is slightly more firm that the SE (I took my test drive in an SE) due to the sports suspension. However, I feel that overall i am very pleased with my purchase and I already find myself looking forward to the next big journey.
I had this car as a courtesy car while my Touran was serviced. I drove about 40 miles, mainly on narrow country roads. I was seriously unimpressed and struggle to find a purpose or reason to own the car. The 1.4 TSI engine is terribly rough and struggles to smoothly deliver power to the road wheels. By contrast my diesel touran is so smooth passengers could be forgiven for not knowing I had changed gear. The cabin space is about the same as a golf, except for the extra height which is nice but the touran has space in spades. The boot is very small, again it looks like a golf. There is a silly space saver spare wheel, but the boot is so small, where would you put the flat? A horrid 60/40 bench is all you get for a rear seat, not like the Touran with 3 independent seats. The fuel economy was dire, about 31MPG. I get 50 with the Touran. I assume the diesel Tiguan is better on most counts than the 1.4 TSI and this is what people will buy but frankly the car is a golf on steroids
Buy the golf, or if you want the extra height and more space get a Honda CRV for about the same money... or get a Touran.
This car will struggle to find a purpose with most would-be buyers.
Had this car on loan while my Passat estate was, once again, in the dealership.
The Wrexham dealer lent this car to me having registered it specially the morning I picked it up Well done Wrexhan VW.
It was a 170hp diesel not sure the spec but would suspect SE or similar. Very nice and roomy inside particularly liked the touch screen radio.
Not really a diesel person and found the very narrow power band and all or nothing prformance a little disconcerting also semed to have to change gear a lot but then I am used to an auto.
Passengers enjoyed the ride comfort although my son complained it was a little wallowy as a driver I had no complaints.
Fuel consumption according to the computer was excellent and I certainly had no trouble at all bettering the Passats mileage.
I think this car could be a winner if the dealer and manufacturer backup is considerably better than I have experienced in the Oswestry area.
I call my Passat Hitler's revenge
I had a fully equipped Tiguan 1.4 SE for the weekend. It is an absolutely awesome car and handles really well. The driving position and gearshift are fun and the car has a lot of pull and feels very sportive and agile. The interior is very elegant, being pro-animals, I am not at all keen on leather, though - why not offer Alcantara again, which is nicer than leather anyway.
Absolutely brilliant are the electronics, SatNAV and a parking assistant that really works - highly recommended.
A very 'yuppie' car, elegant, quick and well suited for rough roads and nasty speed bumps.
