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

R-Line trades a few of Elegance’s luxuries for sportier styling and big 20in wheels, plus it's even more expensive, so it's objectively hard to recommend.

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.
