Review

The Volkswagen Tiguan offers generous space for its occupants and a big boot. It's far more than just a big box on wheels, though; its fine driving manners make it a great car to own. The closely related Skoda Karoq is better value for money, though, while the Volvo XC40 has a more upmarket interior.

get the best price

A luxury-orientated trim that’s a big jump up from Life. Still, you get plenty of extra toys including 19in wheels, a heated steering wheel, an electric tailgate, keyless entry, ambient LED lighting, blindspot monitoring and a panoramic sunroof.

We haven't tried this engine in the Tiguan at the time of writing, but we'll let you know what it's like as soon as we can.
