The Tiguan is Volkswagen's entry in the busy compact crossover segment. What started out as a funky, spunky and fun utility grew in 2018 to become larger, more mature, and more spacious. Still, the Tiguan exemplifies VW's core characteristics, like a driving feel that feels more expensive than it is, and a general sense of solidity. VW also makes Tiguan's high-tech interfaces look familiar. A third-row seat option is a rarity in this class.
