2010 VW Tiguan SEL SUV

2010 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

(3 Stars)  If a Q5's too pricey…

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The VW Tiguan is a smaller version of the hugely popular Touareg and brings many of the best features from it to a smaller package. The Tiguan is a small crossover vehicle that is very strong in the off road department, but was mostly developed for performing on the road. This model comes with a 2.0 liter engine that offers 200 horsepower and is coupled with a 6 speed automatic transmission to offer a seamless shifting experience like no other. The turbocharged four cylinder engine offers a great deal of power, but it also is a very fuel efficient motor giving the Tiguan 26 miles to the gallon on the highway.

The large 18 inch wheels give this VW a striking appeal and with many interior accessories like touch screen controls, powered leather seats and Bluetooth controls there are many great luxuries available too. The Tiguan is a very competitive crossover and even though it is small, it packs quit a punch. The Tiguan is competitively priced at only $23,485 in its base trim level, but can cost over $30,000 at the top trim option.
