The European Sedan of the Compact SUV Segment

While big names like Honda CR-V and Ford Escape carve up the compact SUV segment from a sales perspective, the Tiguan is there to carve up canyons and do it with style. While VW's more recent models have aimed straight for the heart of their respective categories, the Tiguan is something of a holdover in the lineup: semi-premium fit and finish for a semi-premium price. 

Driving Champ

"With a 200-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and entertaining driving dynamics, there's some merit to VW's claim that the Tiguan is the GTI of the compact crossover-SUV class." Find out more in our 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan full review.

Build and Price

The 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan S has a starting sticker price of about $24,000 -- with a manual transmission -- while those wanting 'everything' (along with enhanced handling) can drop over $40,000 on the Tiguan R-Line 4Motion.

Consumer Reviews

One owner described it as a "GTI station wagon," but also went on to cite the Tiguan's "premium price, need for premium fuel and only OK fuel mileage" as reasons it will be a "once only purchase." Read more Volkswagen Tiguan consumer reviews.

Others to Consider

The 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan is indeed stylish and fun to drive, but it's not the only compact SUV that qualifies as both (we're looking at you, Mazda CX-5). There are also roomier, more fuel-efficient and more affordable alternatives, all of which are outlined in our Compact SUV Buyer's Guide.
