2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Reviews

Here’s what the critics have to say about the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan:                

  • Edmunds praises its handling, performance, and interior: “Refined ride and handling balance (except R-Line); punchy turbocharged performance; premium interior trappings; quiet cabin.”
  • The Car Connection: “The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers on most of the important small-crossover promises.”
  • Car and Driver: “It’s one of the sportier crossovers, though; a lively chassis and well-tuned suspension impart a level of agility most competitors can’t match.”
  • KBB: “If you've ever wished for a Volkswagen GTI in SUV form, turn to the Tiguan. Like that sporty hatchback, the Tiguan has a zippy engine and dynamic handling, but benefits from available 4Motion all-wheel drive and taller ride height.”
