This model has more cargo space as well as an optional third row. This Tiguan might have been designed to fit for city dwellers but it inspires off-road driving which is where the most driving pleasure is to be derived. The Tiguan gives drivers the freedom to control how the car responds to their driving style as much as it responds to conditions.

Drivers can customise settings like the steering and suspension. This is not an entirely alien feature but Range Rover pioneered the feature years ago and VW has found a way to use it for the first time on one of their principal or base models.
