Review: The new Volkswagen Tiguan

As VW’s range-topper in the country, the Tiguan represents a certain European standard of luxury minus the pomp and flash possessed by its more ostentatious siblings and other Teutonic counterparts

The Volkswagen Tiguan was always a unique proposition. As a dressed-down alternative to the likes of the Audi Q3, with which it shares plenty, the Tiguan is a bargain. Compared to other premium SUVs like the Jeep Compass, with which it shares similar levels of functionality, its pricing has always been less than ideal. As VW’s range-topper in the country, the Tiguan represents a certain European standard of luxury minus the pomp and flash possessed by its more ostentatious siblings and other Teutonic counterparts. And it’s this clinical, no-frills appeal of the Tiguan that’s always endeared it to me.

Over the years the Tiguan has offered plenty. For a brief period, while VW India worked on bridging the BS6 emissions gap, a 7-seater, CBU version called the Tiguan Allspace, plied the roads. The third-row was only suitable for those willing to sever their legs, so, thankfully the more honest and sensible 5-seater version has returned, this time exclusively with a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine from the Allspace.
