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: R Line Tech

Range-topping R-line Tech versions gain 20in wheels and stiffer sports suspension, as well as a host of minor interior and trim upgrades for a sportier, more distinctive look.

Engine: 2.0 TDi 190 4Motion

Predictably, this diesel engine offers strong performance, although you are forced into paying extra for four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. If you want both of those things along with strong performance, this engine is worth considering. Shame it isn't a bit cheaper.
