FUEL

The 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan’s fuel economy and cargo space leave much to be desired, reviewers say, but they speak well of its energetic engine and captivating handling.

 

ENGINE

Test drivers agree the 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan’s four-cylinder engine delivers:

– Quick acceleration from a stop and power on demand when required.

– The new six-speed automatic transmission is standard and reviewers like its silky and responsive gear shifts. However, the Tiguan’s EPA-estimated 21/26 mpg city/highway fuel economy rating is higher than that of most SUVs in the class.

– The 2015 VW Tiguan has car-like handling and feels composed around corners, test drivers report.

– The ride quality is comfortable, they add, though some note that the R-Line model’s firmer suspension results in a less comfortable ride.

 

INTERIOR

– For its high-end materials and say they accentuate a handsome interior.

– The front seats are comfortable and the head- and legroom ample. Most critics single out the VW Tiguan’s near-noiseless ride and test drivers like its easy-to-reach controls and gauges.

STANDARD FEATURES

INCLUDE

– A rearview camera an eight-speaker stereo with a 5-inch touch-screen display, satellite radio, auxiliary and iPod connections and Bluetooth.

– Available features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a Fender audio system and a touch-screen navigation system.
