Volkswagen is known for building small sedans and hatchbacks, but the VW Tiguan compact SUV is now the brand's best-selling model in the United States. Crisp but conservative exterior styling gives the VW Tiguan a timeless appeal. That understated approach carries into the cabin where most of the interior materials are high in quality. Moreover, the Volkswagen Tiguan provides plenty of space for families and their gear. Even the available third-row seat is hospitable for short trips. Like other Volkswagens, the Tiguan uses a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Performance is modest for this class, but the Volkswagen Tiguan compensates with respectable fuel economy and enjoyable ride and handling characteristics.
