Review

The Tiguan is a strong competitor in the family SUV class with great handling and a long equipment list. Other premium rivals like the BMW X1 are just slightly better finished, though.

Trim: S

This entry-level trim still brings a reasonable amount of standard equipment, including air conditioning, alloy wheels and a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and a DAB radio. You also get plenty of safety kit; lane departure warning and, impressively, automatic emergency braking are both standard.

Engine: 2.0 TDi 150 4Motion

This is the best engine in the Tiguan range. It’s affordable, offers a decent amount of punch and fuel economy is reasonable. CO2 emissions are acceptable, too, making this the most sensible choice for company car drivers. An auto ’box and four-wheel drive are optional.
