VW Tiguan review coming up.


Just got a red VW Tiguan for a week. So I will, as usual, report on it in a few days.

The one I am driving is an FWD SE model. Priced at $28 930.
For a total of $30 280 including destination, 18 inch wheels and fog lamps.

(Which is kind of strange since on the official VW site, the FWD SE is priced at $27 650 before options and destination)

So far?
A noisy engine and a drab interior is what I noticed the most.

As usual, I will try to answer any questions you might have.

How do you like the ride?
The interior looks drab, but is it functional and decent quality?

The ride is nothing amazing. It's just OK, a bit noisy.
Quality is decent but again, nothing great. Nothing at all like the CX-5 for example.
The trunk has a weird shape behind the 3rd row. The hatch is the heaviest I have ever used. (Not powered for $30 000)

Everything is OK at best.

For me, the new Tiguan (SEL with light package and/or R-line with the LED headlights) is the most attractive CUV on the market. I'd pick one up in a minute if it weren't for that paltry motor. I've been reading a lot of very positive impressions regarding the 2.0 in the Atlas, but in the Tiguan?? 184 horses??? Not to mention the unimpressive fuel mileage. I know the CX-5 is very attractive to the masses, but it's feminine and has that "Japanesey" gap, fit/ finish feel that remind me of some of those giant plasticky boom boxes you used to see at swap meets in the 80's.
