Hello, my friends! Welcome! It’s interesting what happens to a model so important for Volkswagen as Tiguan, the second generation. I say this because Tiguan was still sharing the design with Golf 5 and he had a desperate need of a facelift. Let’s see what happens! As I was saying, Tiguan had a desperate need of a facelift and it had come. Look at the lights which are straighter and more aggressive. These lines on the hood lead us to think of a muscle car, but are aggressive. And maybe the most important element of exterior design is this line which starts from here, continues on the doors until the taillights. It gives the car a bit of suppleness. It looks very good. 4 00:01:00,500 –> 00:01;20,500 Under the hood of this superb Tiguan it’s…a diesel! A diesel of 2 liters and 150 HP, which makes its job exactly how it’s suppose to do it: it’s efficient and helped us to arrive here ( we aren’t on very traveled roads). He made his job until now.Let’s see how he does it while I’m driving it. Tiguan is very drivable because this engine diesel of 2 liters obeys, but if you want to make an efficient overtaking, you will have to press the pedal until the bottom, even if here, in mode selection, there is a sport button. Anyway, if you want the best of this engine, you must accelerate to maximum. But, Tiguan has an ace up in his sleeve. It’s a Crossover which knows very good to drive off-road. Here, on mode selection, beside Snow, Normal, we also have the Off-road mode. And believe me, in off-road mode this car has some features hard to believe. Usually, Crossovers are hard to handle on off-road, but not on roads or sometimes on headboards. But, no! Tiguan climbs more than headboards. A good thing is visibility because you are standing up as you were expecting from a Crossover, but you can see very well in all parts.Lately, visibility has become a caprice because automakers are more concentrated on the design of the car. This means that the sniper must be made small or the windows are too narrow and you can’t see very well. But, this doesn’t happen from Tiguan! To have a more enhanced comfort, speed is insensible changed and the suspension is done so you won’t feel the tramways, the specific holes from Bucharest or from another big city from Romania. So, it’s a pleasure to drive this car in the city! And not only in the city! Because Tiguan must do all sort of things very well, consumption
should be as best as possible. Now, we have 8,6 l/100 km. But, we have done a little off-road with the car, we drove more into lower gear and we also drove little faster.So, we have to wait until I can communicate a real consumption. Surely, you will find the consumption in the article from the site. You will have a link to the article in the description of this video. And if you can’t find the article, ask me for it in comments. Volkswagen Tiguan is a crossover. What this means? It means that it has to know a little off-road. I say this to forgive me for the way the trunk looks. But, behind this door, there is..enough space! We have all the equipment for today’s shooting and another bag. If we arrange them a little bit, we can have more space. From here, chairs can be folded easily, so longer objects can be transported. It’s perfect for a family with two kids. In the back, there’s space for three adults. Yes, even the third adult who is staying in the middle has enough space and he can’t hit his head on the roof of the car. It’s enough space above the head and in front of the knees. Those who are staying behind the front seats are having at their disposal a little table which blocks easily and also a cup holder.So, when you have a long road, you can eat exactly like in a plane. Also, in the middle there is mouth ventilation for the air conditioning and a 12 volts socket. It’s really comfortable here! Materials used in the interior are of good quality like all Volkswagen cars from the last 10-15 years. Materials are pleasant to touch and all around there isn’t hard plastic, with this exception from the central console because this surface suffers a little more.But there is a very hard plastic. Being a very practical car we have plenty of storage space. Here, in doors, here in the dashboard there is a storage space, not very deep, but enough for a wallet. Here, is another one for the phone and here the most ingenious cup holder that I ever seen. The Infotainment system is very easy to use, having shortcuts to the main functions like: radio, media (we can connect a Bluetooth system or USB or even a SD card), phone, voice control, navigation, traffic information (this system doesn’t work in Romania), information about the car, fuel consumption and the main menu.From this menu, if we have the extra-option Apple car play and Android auto, we can select it from here. Having
a price of 33631 euros, our Tiguan seems that he can do all sort of things. The diesel engine helps it in the city, also for long roads and off-roads. As you can see, our car has seen some wilderness and we haven’t felt unsafe on off-roads. So, a spacious, practical car! A car that can a lot! A wholehearted recommendation. I liked a lot the new Tiguan! If you liked our review, give us a like! If not, there is a button for this.If you want to see other reviews, please subscribe! Till the next time, I’m going to conquer some hills! .
