2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Review : 118TSI DSG
  • Benchmark cabin quality and rear seat; 1.4-litre twincharged drivetrain well beyond non-turbo 2.0-litre competition; excellent ride and handling
  • Below-average boot space won\'t fit many prams; lack of parking sensors or reversing camera disappointing; some rivals are cheaper to service, have longer warranties
