Expert Quotes:

Standard climate control system is refreshingly simple with only three knobs and two buttons.
Consumer Guide

great new nav system with a high-res 6.5-inch screen and 30-gig hard drive accessible through the optical drive or an SD card slot
Car and Driver

One especially nice touch is the slots beneath the center console, which provide a secure resting place for our building access cards.
Edmunds

There are some cubby holes in the dash and slots in the doors for maps or water bottles, but they won't satisfy pack rats.
Chicago Tribune

Sound quality on the audio system is poor at higher volume levels.
CNET

The Tiguan remains offered in S, SE, and SEL models, and in each case is a strong value, with a high level of standard features—albeit at a slight price premium versus other models in this class.

For 2011, the Tiguan gets a new lineup of alloy wheel designs, as well as new steering-wheel designs—including multi-function buttons for audio. Base S models get a new single-CD sound system, and an iPod adapter and voice-activated Bluetooth are now also standard on all models. The SEL model includes leather seats and push-button start, and roof-rack rails come with SE and SEL trims.

Noteworthy options include a sizable panoramic sunroof, a navigation system (improved for this year), and a music hard drive, and an iPod connection. The navigation and audio setup also includes DVD video playback when the vehicle is stopped, and an SD memory card slot. The top Dynaudio system remains offered only on the Tiguan SEL 4Motion model.

Conclusion

Though the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan isn't priced quite as low as rival models, it offers lots of convenience and entertainment options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
