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

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: 
usnews.com

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

The 2017 Nissan Murano is smooth and polished—and that may be just the ticket for buyers who want a high seating position and the availability of all-wheel drive.
The 2017 Nissan Murano is a five-seat crossover that sort of defies convention. Instead of following its rivals by trying to appeal to growing families or those intent on at least looking the off-road part, the Murano is plush and comfortable, something of a more palatable luxury crossover.

Pros
Dramatic exterior styling
Superb ride quality
Silent cabin
Classy interior design

Cons
Safety tech should be available on S, SV
Passenger seat lacks height adjustment
Ride harshness with 20-inch wheels
Value proposition not as impressive on SL, Platinum

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Nissan Murano ranks 6 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Nissan Murano offers the comfort, performance and refinement typical of luxury SUVs, but without the hefty price tag. Its interior outclasses those of most competing vehicles, and it delivers a cushioned, smooth ride over most surfaces. However, you may wish it were a bit more engaging to drive.

Pros
Posh cabin
Very comfortable seats
Intuitive tech features
Fuel-efficient for a V6 SUV

Cons
Poor rear visibility
Slow steering response

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Nissan Murano is a versatile five-passenger midsize crossover with ample room for all passengers. It's a smart choice if you want an upscale, V6-powered vehicle without the luxury brand premium.
For 2017, the Nissan Murano adds Apple CarPlay functionality and a drowsy driver warning system. New driver assistance features are now available for the SV trim, while the Platinum trim gets a new Midnight Edition styling package.

Pros
High-quality interior materials and unique design features
Exceptionally comfortable front seats
Right balance of power and fuel efficiency
Spacious rear seats that accommodate passengers and car seats with equal ease

Cons
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Funky exterior design creates compromised outward visibility
Advanced safety features are only available on upper trim levels
