Folkswagen, as pronounced by Mr. Wolfsburg himself, or simply spoken out as Volkswagen with a strong ‘V’ intrinsically by most of us — is known for its sturdy and yet reputable image when it comes to building cars for the masses.
It seems the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has most of the ingredients needed for success. The Tiguan feels more polished and upmarket compared to its contemporaries.
It is a spacious and practical SUV that’s good to drive and a sound used buy. The 1.4-liter TSI 4-cylinder engine outs 150 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque.
On the road, the Tiguan rides and handles very nicely indeed. It can smother road imperfections and speed bumps admirably.
Its solid build quality, soft-touch plastics and good-looking materials will please any owner.
In the end, the Tiguan remains a great effort that is left in the shadows of its extremely well-known competitors.
