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!

  • People, if you want a either a Tiguan or a golf, Look at the Current 2019/20 version of this Tiquan or the MK 7.5. That interior is really bad with the touch controls and you are not gonna like using it at all when you're in the car. I currently own the current version of the Tiguan base model & a gold Mk 7 and it does everything you could possibly want, even with proper clicky Buttons!!

  • 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 🤨

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...
