What Car? says...
The Volkswagen Tiguan family SUV is the German brand's best-selling model worldwide, and it's a popular car here in Britain too.
It's not hard to grasp why – the Tiguan combines family-friendly practicality with a relatively upmarket image. Crucially, it's also cheaper than premium-badged alternatives including the BMW X1 and Volvo XC40 (especially if you get a good discount, which isn't too difficult).
The Tiguan is designed more for the road than challenging terrain, but Volkswagen’s 4Motion four-wheel drive system is available with certain engines, and there are adjustable drive modes to help you tackle trickier conditions.
So is the latest, second generation Volkswagen Tiguan a great buy or would you be better off with one of the many alternatives in the family SUV category? Over the next few pages of this review, we'll tell you how it compares with its rivals for performance, interior quality, running costs and more, and also reveal our favourite engine and trim combination.
Oh, and about those discounts. The easiest way to get a great price is by searching for the make and model you want to buy on our free What Car? New Car Buying service. You don't have to do any haggling, and it features lots of the best new Volkswagen Tiguan deals.
