2015-16 Volkswagen Tiguan, Passat CC recalled

Volkswagen Australia has recalled the 2015-16 Tiguan and 2015 Passat CC, over concerns about the condenser in their airbag control unit.

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan 130TDI (4x4) review

Well it’s the first anniversary of me and the Tiguan forming a relationship, after I swiped right on a well-known automotive website. Firstly, I know the car looks like the previous model, but it is only a year old. Built 2015, but complied in 2017...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI Highline review

I was very keen to see the new-series Tiguan, and when my wife and I first saw the white Comfortline in the showroom, our first impression was 'Wow!'. Our red GTI was a great fun car, and as with all the VWs that we had owned, had been completely trouble free. Too many birthdays were starting to influence our car choices, and the Tiguan was the way we thought we should go...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 110 TDI Adventure (Special Ed) review
