This Tiguan replaced my previous VW Rabbit. I loved the rabbit for it's performance. My wife really wanted this car. I preferred the Passat Wagon, but now I am glad that I got the Tiguan. It's small enough to feel like a small car, but still got more room than my old rabbit. Originally I thought Passat feels more upscale, but Tiguan still impresses me very much. This Tiguan's got partial power seat, automatic tranny, built in compass, touch screen stereo with satellite radio, blue tooth abled, and heated seat STANDARD!!! I have a BMW Z4 and they are NOT standard. I also loved the automatic parking brake. I recently took a trip to San Francisco. For all of you don't know what auto-hold does, just try to pull out of the parking space on the side of a steep hill; you will appreciate this. AGAIN, my BMW DOES NOT HAVE ANY OF THIS!!! AND it cost $20,000 more. I shoould shop for an Audi to replace my BMW next!!! LOVE VW, I am sure I will love my next Audi!!!
Very pleasant small SUV

I can't think of anything else VW could have done to make this a more pleasant vehicle . Fit and finish are impeccable, everything operates as it should. Very classy looking, inside and out. As long as one has to get from point A to point B, you might as well have some fun doing so and the Tiguan delivers. I test drove the 2010 Honda CRV and found it coarse and noisy in comparison. I test drove the 2010 Chevy Equinox and was prepared to like it because we have a new Malibu that we love. But the Equinox, though it was quiet and had a nice interior, felt like I was driving in a cave - very poor visibility and boring handling. Thought about the Toyota RAV4 but didn't like the looks of the spare tire plastered against the back. The Tiguan may not be the most practical SUV/crossover (smaller than average storage space, premium gas) but for us, it's the perfect size, visibility is great and it's fun to drive. Did I mention I am getting 30 MPG - admittedly mostly highway driving.
