Perfect small SUV
"I've loved my Tiguan since I bought it back in 2016. It's elegant, sporty, and looks great. The interior is one if it's strongest selling points, especially with the panoramic sunroof and premium audio."

Very modern and comfortable. Elegant dashboard and easy-to-use infotainment system.

I love the aggressive stance the SEL has with the bigger wheels. I like this version much better than the boxier new Tiguans.

With AWD and the wider tires, the Tiguan can really corner better than I had thought. The 2.0 Turbo is adequate and it has a lot of mid-range power.

Storage in the trunk isn't that great. The cockpit is very roomy, however. There's no third-row seating but for a small family, this vehicle is perfect.

This vehicle doesn't get the best gas milage, but I drive it a bit sporty. It also requires 91 Octane which could be a deterrent for some.

Tiguan review
"Very happy with our 2016 Tiguan. There are a few things I wish it had but upgraded models do have those features. If I were to buy again I would look close at features and features of other models to evaluate if the features I'd like to have are cost effective to include in my evaluation."

2016 VW Tiguan Overview
"Excellent quality, really fun to drive. The 2016 SEL has all the luxury features that I require such as keyless ignition, memory seat and mirrors and 8 way powered passenger seat, navigation and satellite radio. I added the dimmable mirror which contains Homelink - this should be standard. I swapped out the 19 inch wheels that come standard on the SEL for the 16 inch wheel from an S model. No loss of handling and considerably less harshness over small impacts. A powered liftgate would be nice but the manual one is easy to operate. Terrific vehicle in a tidy compact package!"

Compact smooth design without unnecessary creases or cladding add - ons.

Maximum torque comes in at very low RPM which makes spirited driving easy and drama free.

Surprisingly roomy back seat and wide door openings.

Hard to say for sure. They don't hold their resale value as well as I think they should and service and repairs are costly.
