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

By:

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.

Ample space for passengers and cargo

Pros
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Rugged Jeep character
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

Cons
Steering is slow and feels loose, especially on the Rubicon trim
Lots of wind and tire noise at highway speeds

By:

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is what the Jeep brand is all about—with roots that date back to the original World War II–era military vehicle—and its off-road capability borders on amazing. While it looks much like the first-generation Jeep that was created to support our troops, it has evolved into a one-of-kind four-wheel-drive vehicle, with tech and luxury to match its off-road chops. It offers everything from air conditioning to leather.

Pros
Throwback styling, heroic off-road capability, you can take off the doors and roof.

Cons
Tight cabin, lots of wind noise, trucklike compared with other SUVs.
