One of the very best small SUVs. Should be cheaper, thoughread the full model review
This is the top-rung Tiguan that adds a sporty flavour to the exterior and interior. Over and above SEL, you get 20in alloys, R-line-specific bodystyling, heated front seats, aluminium-look dash inserts and sports suspension. Although the looks might appeal, you pay an awful lot for them.
Engine:2.0 BiTDi BMT 240 4Motion
This is currently the most potent Tiguan available. Powered by a twin-turbocharged diesel engine that’s also seen in the Passat, it offers serious pace with reasonable running costs. It's too expensive, though, partly down to standard four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox.
