We're tickled by little wagons like this. They're eminently useful, a great size for whipping around urban areas, and return good fuel economy. The Golf Variant has a flexible interior with plenty of little nooks and crannies, a rear seat that folds, flops, flips and comes out. The interior will surely be up to Volkswagen's class leading standards for design, materials and fit and finish. It's a darn sight handsomer than the Tiguan and likely far more useful. Our guess is that if you're interested in the Tiguan, you're not the analytical, pragmatic, efficiency junkie that's likely to covet this car in diesel form. Some of us are already drooling, could be the WVO fumes.
