2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Wolfsburg review

Volkswagen throws everything bar the kitchen sink at the Tiguan to produce the new flagship Wolfsburg Edition. But with its mid-fifties price tag, is there enough substance on offer behind its smart appearance?

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 162TSI Highline review

The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is the German brand's answer to buyers' ever-increasing need for seven seats. But has adding two seats and some extra metal compromised what is a well-resolved mid-sized SUV?

2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace review

The stretched Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is the company's long awaited seven-seat SUV, and just like its classy sibling it does very little wrong. It's a worthy rival to the Hyundai Santa Fe, Skoda Kodiaq and co. Would you expect anything otherwise?

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace quick drive review

Meet the Tiguan Allspace, a Tiguan with... more space. The transition to seven-seat life clearly hasn't ruined the Tiguan's looks, but has it impacted the drive?

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline Review

Read the full review here. Could this – the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline – be the sweet spot in the all-new Volkswagen Tiguan range? Well, it could be – if you’re looking at spending less than $45,000, and you’re after a mid-sized SUV that has more space than most of its rivals, and one of the best cabins of anything at this price point...

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Walkaround : 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace v Mazda CX-8 comparison

Mazda Australia clearly believes there’s big business in catering for large families. Having successfully lobbied in 2007 to grab a right-hand-drive version of the US-focused CX-9 seven-seater SUV, the company has now diverted the new CX-8 seven-seater from the Japanese brand’s domestic market...

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI v Mazda CX-5 Touring AWD comparison

The medium-SUV segment is now, along with dual-cabs, the 'real Australia' battleground for buyers down under. A well-worn cliché, sure ('real Australia' I mean), but with the demise of the large sedan as the go-to vehicle of choice for Aussies, it's now medium SUVs that serve duty as family transport in suburbs across our wide brown land...

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

When the second-generation Volkswagen Tiguan first broke cover in April 2016 at the Berlin International Media Event, it was love at first sight for me. I remember watching first-drive impression videos over and over again on YouTube from channels all around the world, some even in foreign languages with no subtitles. Did I care? No...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 110 TSI Comfortline review

I am a longtime supporter of Volkswagen and Subaru, having owned several of each. Recently, I had to choose between the Forester and the Tiguan for my work drive car. I spent a lot of time comparing four cars to come up with the answer. In my review were the Hyundai Tuscon, Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester and the newly arrived VW Tiguan...
