Review 

The 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact SUV for car-like ride and handling. Tiguan’s 4-cylinder 2.0 liter turbocharged engine is used in the sporty Volkswagen GTI and is more potent than most compact SUV engines. Tiguan is ready for daily necessity and without trouble. The class’s average fuel economy is better than most SUVs but not as good as the average vehicle. Tiguan is provided with 4Motion all-wheel drive, which provides a comfortable advantage for driving in the northern climate. 

The 2010 VW Tiguan comes with an automatic six-speed transmission with a manual shift gate, adding a sporty character. Drivers who want to change their equipment can choose a 6-speed manual drive, an exceptional class offer. The Tiguan exists between the standard and luxury lines. The 2010 VW Tiguan has a lot of soft-touch materials inside, and it feels good overall. A navigation system with a hard drive, consultation camera, and an attractive leather interior is offered in the top-line SEL. 

There are many small nooks for small items storing the controls that are straightforward to use. Getting into and out is easy, with minimum traffic and engine noise. The front seat is plentiful, and the driver’s seat offers convenience and a great view of all corners. The back-posts move up to six inches forward and rear, allowing Tiguan drivers to optimize rear or rear passengers’ comfort. The rear seats have plenty of space, entirely back, but the cargo room suffers. The Tiguan has an excellent rear cargo area, with the back seats down, but it is small for the class.
