In advance of a more thorough update for the 2022 model year, VW makes a few changes to the Tiguan for 2021. The base S and mid-range SE models receive new 17-inch wheel designs and the latter of the two receives standard adaptive cruise control. Likewise, the top-spec SEL Premium R-Line model gains a power-adjustable front passenger's seat.

PROS
Agile driving behavior,
optional third row of seats,
fuel-efficient powertrain.

CONS
Poky acceleration,
firm ride,
dowdy interior design.

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover is spacious and comfortable, and also the league-leader in modesty.

PROS
Big interior
Smooth ride
Automatic emergency braking standard
Big cargo area
Straight shooter

CONS
…and a little boring
Not very fuel-efficient
Small third row
New one on the way

The official line is that the Mokka is a traditional SUV, with butch looks and the option of four-wheel drive, whereas the Crossland X is intended to be a more family-friendly choice.
To that end, all versions are front-wheel drive, which means there isn’t a driveshaft to the rear that robs the interior of usable space. The Crossland X also has deeper side windows than the Mokka to help create an airier feel inside, and it has smaller wheels, which have the potential to improve space, ride comfort and fuel efficiency.

The Vauxhall Crossland X is practical and comfortable, but it’s let down by an underwhelming driving experience.

Pros
Spacious and comfortable
Eager 1.2-litre petrol engine
Plenty of standard safety kit

Cons
Is it a genuine SUV?
Steering too sensitive
Wind noise at speed

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Crossland X is not at all, an off-roader and is aimed, quite simply, at two markets: one is the young family and the other is the older couple whose children have left home and who might want to downsize to a sensible, smaller, yet still practical vehicle.

Pros
Sensible and practical family car
A range of customisation options
Large choice of engines

Cons
Tough competition, but will come out fighting
