Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s plenty of room in the front for even the tallest of occupants and storage space is impressive too. The front door pockets will each hold a fairly large bottle and there’s a cubby below the centre armrest, a pair of cupholders and a cooled glovebox.

Life and Elegance models also get handy drawers under the driver and front passenger seats – perfect for hiding valuables if you need to leave them in the car. 

If you go for Life trim or higher, there are handles in the boot that drop the rear backrests so you don't have to open the rear doors to do it.

Boot space

The Tiguan has a seriously big boot by class standards. You'll fit more in it than you would in the BMW X1 or Nissan Qashqai (which can swallow seven carry-on sized suitcases). There's only a tiny lip to lift luggage over when the standard height-adjustable floor is set to its highest position. 

The boot is a nice square shape and comes with net partitions. If you want to raid the options list, you can add dog guards, boot trays and a range of other practical accessories.
