THE VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN
The 7-Passenger Volkswagen Tiguan
The new Volkswagen Tiguan may very well be in a class by itself. That’s because it’s one of the only compact SUVs with three rows for seven passenger seating. The Honda CR-V doesn’t have that option. Neither does the Nissan Rogue or the Toyota Rav4. The Tiguan also boasts some of the largest cargo space available in its class and comes with an unbeatable suite of driver assistance features unavailable on most other brand models.
U.S. News calls the new Tiguan comfortable and well-equipped. Car and Driver calls it attractive and flexible and extolls its smooth ride. With it’s high-quality German engineering and good looks, the new Volkswagen Tiguan is a sporty, tech-filled, people- and cargo-hauler that would please anyone.
