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.

CONS
