Review of 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
The 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan received a few minor changes compared to the previous generation. You can choose from four different trim levels: S, LE, SE, SEL. The 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan is considered a small crossover SUV and is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 200 hp and 207 pound-feet of torque. This power is transferred through the standard 6-speed manual transmission or the optional 6-speed automatic thatís available. Minor engineering tweaks have resulted in better fuel economy for the front-wheel drive Tiguan, now claiming EPA estimates of 22 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.
Like most Volkswagens, the interior exemplifies the upmost quality available. We didnít feel there was a lot of cargo space, which is something we want to see a lot of in a small crossover SUV. It is somewhat pricey compared to its competition like the Ford Escape or the Land Rover LR2 and for the its price you could probably find something a lot more roomier but if youíre a VW enthusiast and are in the market for a crossover, this might be the one for you! The S trim starts out at $22,840.
