Inside, the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan is bound to satisfy even the most demanding buyers, with good interior space, comfort, and impressive materials.

The Tiguan has easily accessible but sporty and supportive seats with an option of a flexible interior package that includes second-row split bench seats designed to slide and tilt. The cargo compartment has a small hidden storage bin underneath the load floor, and there's a twin glove box up front. In terms of space, the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan impresses, both with passengers and their gear.

According to Edmunds, although the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan offers seating for five, "the middle rear seat is compromised somewhat by a raised cushion." Motor Trend says that "6-plus footers get plenty of headroom and legroom whether up front or in back." MotherProof claims the seats "are molded for support without being hard," and even though "they're not power adjustable, the eight-way manual seat adjustment worked just fine." Road & Track finds that the interior is "comfortable, quiet and roomy, especially with the sliding rear seats."

Most of the reviews read by praise the Tiguan for its ample cargo capacity. Motor Trend says "cargo space is more than adequate, and it doubles from 23.68 to 56.1 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down." notes that the "rear seat can be folded flat from the cargo area, but moving it forward reveals a crevice in the load floor for storing small items." Inside the cabin of the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, MotherProof reviewers point out "decent-sized bins in the front doors," as well as "two seatback pockets and a center console with a power outlet."

The 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan boasts superb quality in terms of construction and materials as well. ConsumerGuide says "the dashboard deftly combines soft touch and hard plastics for a pleasing appearance." Motor Trend, on the other hand, reports that the Tiguan "features a high-quality interior full of rich plastics and tight tolerances," while claims that "being a Volkswagen, the Tiguan has a well-designed interior with high-quality materials." The Auto Channel notes that "the Tiguan's interior is attractive with fine materials, impeccable fit and finish and clean, efficient layout." Kelley Blue Book also joins in with the praise, finding that the "up-level SE and SEL trims, with their contrasting materials and optional leather seating, are quite appealing."

Noise reduction is a big highlight of the superior build quality. ConsumerGuide reports "a little wind noise on the highway, but the turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is nearly silent at cruise." MotherProof, as well, finds that the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan is "pretty quiet on the inside."


Even larger adults will be very comfortable in the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, thanks to generous headroom, shoulder room, and legroom.

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.
