    Expert Rating

    4.4 (Excellent)
    21 City / 26 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Volkswagen Tiguan OVERVIEW

    Volkswagen joined the compact crossover group back in 2009, with the Tiguan. Built upon a platform adapted from smaller Volkswagens, notably the Golf, the compact Tiguan is geared toward European-style ride and handling characteristics. Powered by a 200-horsepower, 2-liter engine, Tiguan has been selling rather well for Volkswagen. Four versions are available, including a sporty-looking R-Line edition.

    What's New for 2016

    In addition to a significant price drop, the 2016 Tiguan gets several upgrades that include V-Tex leatherette seating, keyless entry, pushbutton start, and rain-sensing wipers. The latest MIB II infotainment system now is controlled via a 5-inch touchscreen. Heated front seats also are new. Volkswagen has repositioned the sporty-styled R-Line edition, with a lower price. All trims except the base S get VW Car-Net App-Connect.

    Choosing Your Volkswagen Tiguan

    In every Tiguan, a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine produces 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The standard six-speed automatic transmission incorporates a Tiptronic manual-shifting mode. Front-wheel drive is standard, but you can select 4MOTION all-wheel drive instead. With front-drive, the Tiguan S gets a fuel-economy estimate of 21 mpg in city driving and 26 mpg on the highway. All-wheel drive drops the city figure to 20 mpg, but both drive systems get a 23 mpg estimate for combined driving.

    Four trim levels let you pick an appropriate number of amenities. Volkswagen's 4MOTION all-wheel drive costs $1,975 additional for each model.

    2.0T S

    Priced at $25,755 (including destination charge) for 2016, Volkswagen’s “entry-level” Tiguan comes with cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, and power heated outside mirrors. Also included are an electronic parking brake, roof rails, 40/20/40 folding rear seats, and trailer hitch prep. Aluminum wheels hold 16-inch tires. New features include heated front seats, keyless entry, pushbutton start, and rain-sensing wipers. New V-Tex leatherette upholstery (replacing cloth) promises the look and feel of leather.

    2.0T R-Line

    Volkswagen has repositioned the sport-focused R-Line, now priced ($29,565) to slot between S and SE trim levels, and it constitutes an appealing value proposition. A sport suspension promises precise handling. R-Line includes V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, a power driver’s seat, power reclining passenger seat, stainless steel pedals, flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters, aluminum sill kickplates, and Titanium black headliner. Also standard are foglights and cornering lamps, body-color side skirts, black wheel-arch extensions, silver-color roof rails, a stylized back bumper, roof spoiler, and 19-inch wheels. The MIB II touchscreen infotainment system includes USB, VW Car-Net App-Connect and a 6.3-inch display, satellite radio, and VW Car-Net connected car services.

    2.0T SE

    Building upon the 2.0T S, the $32,355 SE has a panoramic sunroof, V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, power driver’s seat, power-reclining passenger seat, touchscreen navigation with 6.5-inch display, foglamps, cornering lamps, bi-xenon headlights, and 18-inch alloy wheels. AWD adds $1,975.

    2.0T SEL

    Now topping the Tiguan lineup, SEL trim includes dual-zone automatic climate control, Fender Premium Audio, 19-inch alloy wheels, wheel-arch extensions and a sport suspension. The SEL also has leather seating surfaces, a memory driver’s seat, power passenger seat, power-folding mirrors, and rearview camera with Rear Assist.

    CarsDirect Tip

    With a reduced price for 2016, the R-Line sounds like an even greater value than before when you consider its batch of sport-themed features. Then again, the SEL has added features for 2016; and so has the base S model. Tiguan buyers have some clear-cut choices to make. In well-equipped form, a Tiguan might even serve as an alternative to small, sporty SUVs from the likes of BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
