Works fine in moderate off-roading
Standard safety gear

Cons
9-speed automatic gets confused
Not much bigger than CR-V
The adventure’s missing from the look
No low-ratio four-wheeling

The 2021 Passport only receives a small update for the new model year, with base models adding a newly standard 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system versus the old 5.0-inch display. The rest of the lineup is unchanged except for a small increase in starting prices.

Spacious interior for people and cargo,
powerful V-6 engine,
plenty of standard safety features.

Cons
Base model isn’t well equipped,
occasional rough ride,
not so stylish.

Volkswagen has given its compact SUV a handsome styling refresh for 2022 to help it look at home alongside the restyled Atlas and new Atlas Cross Sport mid-size SUVs. New LED headlamps, revised grille and bumpers, and new wheel designs give the 2022 Tiguan a more modern appearance. The Tiguan's cabin receives updates as well, in the form of a new steering wheel with touch-sensitive controls. Heated seats and a digital gauge display are now standard across the lineup.

Pros
Sporty handling,
spacious cabin,
available third row of seats.

Cons
Average acceleration,
firm seats,
underwhelming interior trimmings.
