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.
