Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a well-rounded crossover SUV, just don’t expect to use its third row for anyone bigger than the family dog.

Pros
Spacious digs
Classy, conservative design
Good standard tech
Lots of crash-avoidance gear

Cons
Comical third row
So-so fuel economy
Can get expensive with options
R-Line’s just a tease

The current-generation Tiguan launched for the 2018 model year, and it's received only superficial changes since. For 2020, the Tiguan adds a Wi-Fi hotspot, which is now standard, as is additional safety content including forward-collision alert with automatic braking and a blind-spot warning system. There's a new SE R-Line Black trim that packages 20-inch dark wheels, sunroof, fog lights, and parking-alert sensors. Volkswagen is also shortening its warranty on all of its 2020 models from a standout 6 years/72,000 miles down to a more typical 4 years/50,000 miles. But two years of complimentary maintenance is now included.

Pros
Refined driving experience, available third row, excellent fuel economy.

Cons
Not as quick as its rivals, ride gets firm with large optional wheels.

The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert standard on all models.Volkswagen's Car-Net telematics system standard; Wi-Fi available with subscription.SEL model includes heated steering wheel and rain-sensing wipers.

PROS
Ample space for passengers and cargo
Three-row seating is useful in a pinch
Intuitive tech interface
Offers longer warranty period than most competitors

CONS
Subpar acceleration and responsiveness
Ranks low in fuel economy for the class
Optional larger wheels make for a bumpy ride

The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu ranked #11 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Malibu has a score of 6.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 24 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price for the class
Great fuel economy

Cons
Cheap-feeling cabin materials
Dull handling
Less passenger and trunk space than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Almost nothing! The Malibu received a minor visual update for 2019, so the 2020 Malibu carries over to this year with only a few new colors (Stone Gray and Black Cherry) and new wheels for the RS and Premier trims. Three paint colors available in 2019 are no more, so if you had a strong attachment to or lust for Iridescent Pearl, Pacific Blue, or Sandy Ridge, 2020 just isn't your year.

Pros
Handsome (yes, really!) design, lots of tech, great ride and handling for its class.

Cons
Poor rear visibility, cheaper models lack features, can't disable auto stop/start.

By:

CONS
