Volkswagen Tiguan 2021

Our most recent review of the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan resulted in a score of 7.9 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: The Tiguan is VW’s most popular product for lots of good reasons. It’s practical, comfortable, and now more high-tech than ever. We think existing fans of the mid-sizer will adore this new one which packs lots of wow-factor in at a modest price increase.

The Volkswagen Tiguan SUV competes with similar models like the Toyota RAV4, Kia Sportage and Subaru Forester in the Under $40k category category.

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Volkswagen Tiguan 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Tiguan here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why do I get an error message when I connect the nav in my 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan?

    Your car’s sat-nav should be taking its data from an SD card that’s inserted in a slot inside the glove-box. So, the first thing to check is that the SD card is seated in the slot correctly. But there have been cases where the VW’s software seems to have a light-headed moment and loses the plot (it happens on plenty of other brands, too). One thing you can try is to press the on-off button for the infotainment screen and hold it down for at least 15 seconds. Sometimes, that will actually reboot the system and everything will come to life again, including the sat-nav.

    Failing that, it’s a trip to the dealership to have the experts fix it. It may turn out that your data card or the software in the car needs an upgrade, which the dealership should be able to sort out for you.

  • Why does my 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan need so many repairs?

    It’s really not good enough, is it: A modern car should go well beyond the 100,000km mark before the cost of repairs required are higher than the value of the vehicle itself. However, before making a decision either way, I’d be getting a second opinion, because either your dealership has no idea what it’s talking about, or it’s making an attempt to shake you down. So go back to them and tell them – just for starters – that your engine has a timing belt and not a timing chain.

    Based on that alone, I’d be dubious about any diagnosis made by a workshop that doesn’t know this rather simple fact about the engine in your car. A second opinion might put the situation into an entirely different light financially speaking, too. Try a workshop that isn’t a Volkswagen dealer and start from scratch. I’d also be talking to VW Australia customer service department, because that degree of work on a vehicle with just 96,000km showing is a scandal.

  • Volkswagen Tiguan 2012: Do I need to get the diesel injectors serviced?

    There’s more factors than distance covered when it comes to diesel fuel-injector lifespan. That said, modern, common-rail diesels do seem to work their injectors pretty hard, so it’s possible that yours will be ready for replacement at 165,000km on the odometer.

    Other elements that will contribute to injector wear are fuel quality, dirty fuel filters, the overall condition of the system including the fuel pump and simply how well the vehicle has been maintained generally. How it’s been driven will also have a bearing on injector life, including whether it’s been used for highway travel, urban running and whether it’s been used to tow relatively heavy loads.

    Fuel-injectors can be rebuilt or reconditioned, but the trade reckons that a reconditioned injector will have about half the useable lifespan of a brand-new replacement injector. As for injector servicing intervals, I’d be guided by what Volkswagen says in its factory service schedule.

  • Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 2020: Should I wait for the facelifted version?

    It would be very rare for a facelifted version of a car to be less expensive than the one it replaces, Imran and, on balance, the upgrade model usually costs a little more based on more features. At the moment, though, there’s no word on exactly when the facelifted Tiguan will arrive here, nor exactly what the changes and improvements will be, so it’s very difficult to know whether it’s worth waiting for.

    But it is worth mentioning that you’ll be very unlikely to manage a discount on the new version, whereas VW dealers might be a little more motivated to clear the decks of the existing model and will possibly be a bit more keen to negotiate.

    Of course, even if you wait for the upgrade model, there’s a very real chance that we’ll be seeing an all-new Tiguan by 2022 anyway.
