When the Tiguan was released in 2007, I wasn’t the biggest fan.. It was just a shrunk Touareg. But now they’ve updated it And I have to say; It certainly looks a lot better! They’ve tried to make this Tiguan like the newest Touareg The previous model was a bit of a “Barbie” car It was very round and not very sporty This one really is quite the opposite It has got the new VW nose But they forgot to redesign the mirrors, because they look exactly the same as the ones on the old version Again we have the 2.0 TSI, with 210 bhp I’m not going to tell anything about this engine. I’m certain you’re all very familiar with it In this new model it is accomponied by a 7 speed DSG gearbox Which is a bit more fierce than the 6 DSG It changes gear more frequently, but in the “D” mode it’s a bit dead In “S” it really gets more aggressive, but it keeps the revs too high which can get uncomfortable..I think VW is going to use this gearbox in the new gti As usual, this press model is equipped with all options available The best one is the “R-Line” package, which takes the Tiguan to a whole different level You get a different nose, back, a diffuser, sideskirts, spoilers, 19″ rims and sporty suspension I wouldn’t get the suspension, because it gets quite uncomfortable with the 19″ rims and you will never feel like doing some serious cornering with this car.. That’s really not what it’s made for I do have some complains.. The interior looks, and feals, really cheap not what we’re used to from VW The seats are included in the R-Line package they’re covered in fabric..Which isn’t what you’d expect in a car with this price tag(€60.000 NL) they’re quite firm and not very comfortable.. I think this is a big mistake VW really improved the Tiguan The old one was just boring.. it was a very dull car, it didn’t have anything special This new one, with the new front and back, just looks a lot better Would I recommend it to anyone… Yes I would! It really has become a great looking car.. especially with the R-Line package! But you can leave the suspension “upgrade”.. It really is just useless.. .
