The Volkswagen Tiguan is a medium-sized SUV/crossover. The current version was launched in the middle of 2016 and is Volkswagen’s third-most popular models (after the Golf and Polo), finishing 2020 just outside the top ten best-selling cars in the UK.

A lengthened model called the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, which has seven seats, joined the range in early 2018. The Tiguan range received a mild facelift at the end of 2020.

The Tiguan has received mostly good to very good ratings from across the UK media, with widespread praise for its refinement and practicality.

The Volkswagen Tiguan shares its platform, engines and many other components with the SEAT Ateca, Skoda Karoq and Audi Q3, which are all similar mid-sized SUVs.

In a 2020 What Car? survey of the 50 most reliable cars in the UK up to eight years old, the petrol-engined versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan ranked equal 27th. Diesel versions didn’t make the top 50.
