Expert Quotes:

20 mpg city, 25 highway (automatic), 18/26 (manual); 19/25 (automatic, 4Motion all-wheel drive)

AWD Tiguans averaged 18.1-18.8 mpg in city/highway driving and 24.6 with mostly highway use
Consumer Guide

Our combined average during our time with the Tiguan was 22 mpg, a reflection of the fact that we did mostly highway driving

At 20 mpg overall, fuel economy is not a strong point
Consumer Reports

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan gets EPA city ratings of 18 to 20 mpg, and highway ratings of 25 or 26, which places it near the bottom of the pack in its class, compared to other four-cylinder crossovers—and even some V-6 models. What's more, the Tiguan requires premium fuel.

For those who like the look and feel of the Tiguan but can't get over the mileage, the Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen gets a much more impressive 30/42 with the available TDI engine.

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.
