How it copes with people and clutter

Climb into the Tiguan R and you’ll find plenty of room up front for even the tallest of drivers. There are also lots of storage areas dotted around the interior. The front door bins will each hold a pretty big bottle of drink, there’s a centre armrest with space for odds and ends, and a cooled glovebox should prevent chocolatey road-trip treats from melting.

True, if you try to squeeze three adults into the back of the Tiguan, whoever sits in the middle is likely to feel a bit pinched, but leg room won't be an issue unless you’re well over six feet tall. If you’re carrying only a couple of rear passengers, there’s a central armrest with a pair of cupholders to improve comfort further.
