Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace looks to be better aligned with the demands of American buyers than its pricey, cramped predecessor.

Pros
More aligned with buyer tastes?
Clean styling inside and out
High-tech dashboard
Lots of available safety tech

Cons
Will it be underpowered?
Awfully small for a three-row crossover
Third row required for FWD
Looks are too conservative for some

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan ranked #8 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Volkswagen Tiguan has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of user-friendly tech features
Good cargo space
Smooth ride
Roomy first- and second-row seats

Cons
Postage-stamp third row
Unimpressive engine
Subpar fuel economy

By:

The Volkswagen Tiguan is fully redesigned for 2018. Compared to its predecessor, it offers more legroom, more cargo space and a standard third row.

PROS
Lots of space for passengers and cargo
Third-row seating can be useful in a pinch
Now offers comprehensive driver safety features
Revised tech interface is sharp, intuitive and quick to respond

CONS
Optional larger wheels make for a bumpy ride
Still ranks low in fuel economy, despite revised engine

By:

The Stonic looks quite serious despite the colorful accents – it’s for people who think that rainbow-coloured socks are the most outrageous thing they can wear

Pros
Seven-year warranty
Easy-to-use interior
Easy to drive

Cons
Noisy 1.6-litre diesel engine
Interior feels cut price
Tight in the back for passengers

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Better to drive than most other small crossovers, but similarly flawed overall.

Pros
Stylish to look at and agile around tow

Cons
Kia sells more practical cars for less money
