Expert Quotes:

Tiguan's smart, low-key sheet metal is clearly a product of the Volkswagen gene pool
Edmunds

think of it more like a beefed-up Golf than a downsized Touareg
Popular Mechanics

As each trim level increases, so does the size of the Tiguan's rims (16 in. to 18 in.) and the total amount of chrome around the car.
Road & Track

highlights the silliness of the faux-S.U.V. genre
New York Times


The stylish Volkswagen Tiguan is based on the Golf platform, so it's compact and beneath it all more car than ute. It measures 173.2 inches in length, 72.8 inches in width, and 66.5 inches in height, with one of the taller, more upright stances of vehicles in this compact segment. Design-wise, it gives the impression, as vehicles in this class often do, of a vehicle that was designed from the inside out; the smooth but conservative look appears as more blandly contemporary than sporty or adventurous. But there's nice detailing to keep it in line with Volkswagen's cars, as well as the Touareg SUV.

Inside, the styling is also familiar from VW's cars, yet a little more upright. While the presentation is very straightforward, the finishes are richer than we've come to expect from Volkswagen.

Conclusion

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan stands out from the competition by appearing more carlike rather than rugged, with a richer interior look.

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.
