Full Review

The Plain Jane with Surprising Oomph: Despite an annoying auto-hold funciton, the Tiguan is actually a pretty sweet ride. Key pluses are amazing ride-comfort reslting from a very well-tuned suspension, pretty good power and a well thought out, effective sound system. It's also surprisingly easy to manuever and park, as a result of its small turning radius and available parking sensors. Too bad that the car looks a bit boring. Read our full review here.

Perfect for
