Volkswagen Tiguan review - the best car you can buy for less than £25k?

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
When it comes to family cars, they don’t come much more recognisable than the Volkswagen Tiguan.
Now, you might not believe it when you first lay eyes on it, but the Tiguan’s been updated! Sure, it looks pretty damn similar to the old model, but we can assure you there are differences both inside and out.
As for under the engine, well there’s a choice of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrids, including a range-topping 2-litre turbo petrol that’ll deliver 320hp… Although you’re going to have to upgrade to the Tiguan R for that! If you're not willing to step up to the R, you could always go for the R Line (like we have in this video), which has a 1.5-litre petrol that can produce 150hp.
So what do you think - is the Tiguan still the must-have family SUV? Or are the XC40 or Skoda Kodiaq still ahead of the game? Stick with Mat to find out!

  • My 2019 model is the most dangerous car I’ve ever owned, it’s known issues with stalling as put me in a few nerve racking situations, I bought it new from hawco in Elgin, moray last year and it’s now stalled 6 times when pulling out from a junction leaving me stranded in the lane with traffic heading for me, I wish I’d never sold my Kia Sportage 🤨

  • I like the fact that you are adding pictures of the basic versions. Usually car reviewers get the biggest trim level and when you are in the garage, you're usually not gonna spend a few grands on all the bits and plastic. Do the new Q5 next!

Even my mother in law could have fitted those better. And that is in plain sight. Imagine the quality of hidden works and parts... So disappointing...

  • That's the price for the entry version, and sure you a better discount just 750 quid come on. That carwow stick of true is getting really ridiculous when you know perfectly that version doesn't bring any exausth tips. Shortlisted that's the best of the 3 by far and you know it, really didn't understand that verdict.

    • It happens all the time. The manufactures want their high spec models reviewed to lure you in. A 25k one of these is poverty spec and isn’t going to excite anyone. Much easier to try and convince people this is a 40k car and lifestyle that you can but into at 25k, than tell them this is a 25k car that you can blow another 15k on trying to make it more desirable.

  • Coming from 2 previous Golf's and in the market for a SUV right now, I think Dieselgate seems to have affected the current crop of models as they all looking pretty meh to me. The XC40 looks better imo and if I'm brutally honest I think I'm more interested in refreshed 3008

    Brendan FeldwickBrendan Feldwick2 أيام قبل
    • Brendan, don’t do it. SUV life is a psychological killer. Some people love them but if you like cars an SUV is like moving into an old folks home. If you must, go for the XC40 - I had one for a short while and it’s an excellent car and the best of its breed, but my god, it’s demoralising getting into an SUV and having to tell yourself your life has come to this but at least you made the right choice. At this price point have a look a BMW 4 series gran coupe. You don’t have to kill your soul for practicality.
