Volkswagen Tiguan

The second generation of Volkswagen’s medium Tiguan SUV launched in 2016 with much fanfare, and company bosses predicting it would become the brand’s best selling car after the Golf hatch.

The five-door, five-seat Tiguan sits atop a modified version of the platform that underpins the Golf, and is longer and wider – yet up to 68kg lighter - than the previous generation of the SUV. While others in the space are more affordable, VW has pitched the Tiguan into the market with a very high level of standard kit, which includes items like auto emergency braking, lane assist and park assist.

The Tiguan 110 TSI TRENDLINE starts at $34,490 up to $52,490 for the Tiguan ALLSPACE 162 TSI HIGHLINE.

Volkswagen Tiguan Interior

The Volkswagen Tiguan's interior is inoffensive but hardly flashy. It’s pretty much indistinguishable from a Golf, which means decent plastics, leather-trim touch points and well-built switchgear. There’s a digital dash in front of the steering wheel, which looks modern, and the centre console is nicely designed, with closing panels over the storage and a very shiny multimedia screen in the centre of the dashboard that blends beautifully into its surrounds. As our review images show, the front is nice and roomy and there's plenty of space in the back.
