The market for mid-sized family SUVs is a huge one and Volkswagen has constantly refined its formula since the first Tiguan launched in 2008. Those refinements mean that the 2020 Tiguan is one of the most practical, comfortable, and high-quality cars of its kind. In fact, Volkswagen's Tiguan has made a bit of a name for itself in recent years as a competitive player in the booming SUV market, and is the manufacturer's third-best-selling car in the UK, behind the highly successful Golf and Polo.
The 2020 VW Tiguan is a 2- or 3-row SUV that comes in 5 trim levels: S, SE, SE R-Line Black, SEL and SEL Premium R-Line. The Tiguan range is expansive, and covers everything from low-powered entry-level models to high-end luxurious versions. All are ideal for families, though, with lots of room in the back seats and boot, and a 5-star Euro NCAP score.
All Tiguans are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that's connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2020 Tiguan's biggest selling point is its optional third-row seat, which is something you can't find on leading competitors such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. That said, the third row is cramped and best left to shorter or younger occupants as leg and headroom are in short supply.
Of course, the Tiguan’s competition is huge. Not only do the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq offer the same engines and technology, but hugely popular cars such as the Nissan Qashqai and Peugeot 3008 all compete for the same audience. The Tiguan is the perfect choice if you need space with a 7 seat Allspace option also available for bigger families.
