2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report four – off-road weekend

I slide into the dark coloured Volkswagen Tiguan under a cobalt blue sky and head as quickly as possible out of Sydney, doing my best to avoid the never-ending snake-like peak hour traffic rolling ever forward at the mind boggling speed of 12km/hour. It pays to have a comfortable car in Sydney and I'm thankful the Tiguan is just that, with a sturdy sports-esque manually adjusted cloth seat that has just the right amount of support...

How does guaranteed future value 'leasing' work?

You know how this story goes. You've bought some cool piece of consumer electronics, brand new - and when you go to sell it years later, it's worth far less than you'd expected. Worse, somebody then tries to 'lowball' you with an even more painful offer. Yes, that feeling, you know the one. And you know it's much the same with cars - except ten times worse...

Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...
