New Volkswagen Tiguan Review
Volkswagen seem to take their time when it comes to introducing new models and the Tiguan is no exception, for years we have seen the Rav4 and Honda CR-V become more and more popular, yet Europe¬?s largest selling manufacturer has still shied away from this burgeoning market, not any more with the launch of the Tiguan. Designed not only to take sales from Honda and Toyota, the Tiguan has also set its sights on the Land Rover Freelander 2.
With new engines and new technology, the Tiguan may have taken a while to get here, but you won¬?t be disappointed, they may have arrived late to the party, but at least they arrived with a fridge load of supplies, hill-climb assist and automatic differential locking for when things get a little dodgy underfoot, turbocharged and supercharged petrol engines and a new common rail diesel all distinguish the Tiguan from its more mainstream rivals.
The chances are the only off roading the Tiguan will do is mounting the kerb on the school run, but for those who are a little more serious, Volkswagen are also offering the Tiguan Escape that has a revised front end, giving greater clearance at the front for clearing larger obstacles.
Will the Tiguan take sales from the Freelander? Probably, Volkswagen do seem to make cars that people want to buy and the Tiguan will no doubt prove just as popular as its other VW siblings.
Like the looks of the Volkswagen Tiguan, why not check out, the Toyota Rav4, the Honda CR-V or the Land Rover Freelander 2.
