The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan feels refined and sophisticated, but it's not especially rewarding to drive. The 2011 Honda CR-V is homely, as well as unexciting to drive; yet it's a great minivan alternative on many counts—appealing to practical shoppers with a roomy, versatile interior and top safety ratings.
