Expert Quotes:

21/26 mpg, 23 mpg combined (FWD automatic); 18/26 mpg, 21 mpg combined (FWD manual); 20/26 mpg, 23 mpg combined (AWD automatic)
EPA

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
Edmunds

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


You'd expect a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and six-speed transmission to get pretty decent fuel economy, but the EPA tells us otherwise. The fuel economy can range from as high as 21 mpg city/26 mpg highway, or as low as 18/26 mpg, depending how you equip your Tiguan.

Those numbers are near the bottom of the crossover class; compared to other four-cylinder compact crossovers. The embarrassing part is that it's even fallen behind some of the newer V-6-powered crossovers in its class. Not only that, the Tiguan also requires drivers use premium fuel.

There are other options, even within the VW fold, for those who deem that unacceptable: The Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen offers a TDI clean-diesel engine that's just as perky but offers up to 42 mpg highway.

Conclusion

Gas mileage is just okay; many crossovers fare much better at the pumps.

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.
