Below-average fuel economy ratings

In advance of a more thorough update for the 2022 model year, VW makes a few changes to the Tiguan for 2021. The base S and mid-range SE models receive new 17-inch wheel designs and the latter of the two receives standard adaptive cruise control. Likewise, the top-spec SEL Premium R-Line model gains a power-adjustable front passenger's seat.

PROS
Agile driving behavior,
optional third row of seats,
fuel-efficient powertrain.

CONS
Poky acceleration,
firm ride,
dowdy interior design.

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover is spacious and comfortable, and also the league-leader in modesty.

PROS
Big interior
Smooth ride
Automatic emergency braking standard
Big cargo area
Straight shooter

CONS
…and a little boring
Not very fuel-efficient
Small third row
New one on the way

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes with a 4 yr./ 50000 mi. basic warranty, a unlimited yr./ unlimited mi. roadside warranty, and a 6 yr./ 70000 mi. powertrain warranty.Minor changes to option and appearance packages.

Pros
Upscale design inside and out
Powerful standard engine provides quick acceleration
Lots of advanced features
Available plug-in hybrid powertrain

Cons
Doesn't have an abundance of headroom
Overly soft handling saps driver confidence
Subpar visibility to the front and rear

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.

Pros
A 7/8ths Navigator
Big infotainment displays
Hybrid plug-in
Lots of room for four adults
Gorgeous Black Label interiors

Cons
It’s $$$$
Third row is small
The V-6 moans
Grand Touring: not electric enough?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Aviator sees only minor changes for 2021, including optional 21- and 22-inch wheel designs, three new colors (Asher Gray, Ocean Drive Blue, and Flight Blue), and an available Monochromatic Reserve appearance package. The Reserve trim receives a panoramic sunroof, and the top-flight Black Label gains soft-close doors. The Elements package—found on the Reserve and Grand Touring models—now comes with heated and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Polished turbo V-6 powertrain,
comfortable interior,
plenty of curb appeal.

Cons
Unrefined optional hybrid powertrain,
disappointing fuel economy,
most expensive Black Label trim encroaches Navigator's price range.
