The Tiguan is Volkswagen's entry into the ever growing small SUV segment. German design and engineering helps to try and set it apart from the competition.

The Tiguan is powered by VW's versatile 200-hp 2.0L turbo FSI engine mated to either a six-speed manual (S FWD only) or six-speed automatic transmission along with a choice of front-wheel drive or 4Motion all-wheel drive. Standard safety equipment includes six airbags, anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, traction control, and electronic stability control. Other available features include a panoramic power sunroof, leather seating surfaces, rear view camera, Fender premium audio system, and Climatronic automatic air conditioning.

For 2014, a new R-Line trim is added, featuring sport suspension, 19-inch wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights with adaptive front lighting system.

TagLine

Sleek, sporty crossover can take tough terrain.

Introduction

Designed for an active sporty lifestyle, the Volkswagen Tiguan delivers excellent performance on the road or over rugged terrain.The rear seat folds 40/20/40, creating cargo possibilities galore, and the standard tow hitch prep takes an available attachment that holds four bicycles.With a 2200-pound towing capacity, the Tiguan can pull a small boat.

Tiguan styling was revised for 2012, sleeker than before, while maintaining the Volkswagen family resemblance.In fact, if you look at a picture of all Volkswagens made, the noses all look the same: a smooth horizontal line of grille and headlamps, which stretches into a small smile.Each Tiguan added an electronic parking brake and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel for 2013.

For 2014, trim levels and options have been altered a bit.A new R-Line exterior and interior package is available, comparable to R-Line editions of the Beetle, CC and Touareg.The Fender premium audio system is now available for lower trim levels.Also new for 2014 is a six-month, no-charge trial of VW Car-Net connected services, included on the SE trim level and above.Car-Net security/convenience features o include automatic crash notification, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle location assistance, as well as remote vehicle access and boundary/speed alerts.A vehicle health report also is part of the service.

All 2014 Tiguan models use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with direct injection and variable valve timing.This engine has been around a long time and it's brilliant, now making 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque at a low 1700 rpm.Either a manual or automatic transmission may be installed, with front-wheel drive or 4Motion all-wheel drive.

We found acceleration snappy and silky.The engine is smooth and silent at high speeds, where the chassis remains stable.In the Tiguan, 80 miles per hour feels like 60 mph.In fact, it's the smoothest four-cylinder we can think of.The Tiguan SE delivers a nice balance between smooth ride quality and stability at high speeds.Volkswagen says Tiguan is the GTI of compact SUVs.

Tiguan comes standard with front-wheel drive, but we highly recommend opting for the excellent 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Fuel mileage is decent, earning an EPA-estimated 21/26 mpg City/Highway with front-drive, 20/26 with AWD.Manual shift drops the estimate to 18/26 mpg City/Highway.Economy is helped by a tall sixth-gear ratio in the 6-speed automatic transmission, and relatively low-rpm shift points.We got 22.7 mpg running the Tiguan hard on the freeway, and easy around town.

The instrumentation is beautiful, and the clarity and simplicity of the touch screen and controls is outstanding.The interior materials are of a high quality, especially the V-Tex leatherette, which we couldn't tell from real leather.We recommend the optional Navigation system for its clarity and ease of use.

Volkswagen Tiguan's main rivals are the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4.

In addition to about 400 miles on the road, we drove the Tiguan at an event in the Northwest called Mudfest, where it competed in the compact SUV class against a Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, Mini Countryman, Nissan Juke, and Subaru Impreza.The CX-5 won overall, but the Tiguan proved superior on the autocross course with its wonderful handling, and out on the highway with its smoothness at high speed.In the mud, with the Tiguan's 4Motion all-wheel drive, only the sporty Mazda CX-5 could keep up.

Lineup

The 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan comes in four models.All use the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.All use a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual mode except the base Tiguan S, which offers a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic without manual mode.Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available on all models.

Tiguan S comes with a 6-speed manual transmission ($22,995) or 6-speed automatic without manual mode that includes alloy wheels ($25,020).Tiguan S 4Motion ($26,975) includes all-wheel drive the 6-speed automatic and alloy wheels.Tiguan S comes standard with cloth upholstery, reclining front seats with driver's lumbar adjustment, 40/20/40 folding rear seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, intermittent wipers, eight-speaker sound system with in-dash CD player, electronic parking brake, heated mirrors, cruise control, 16-inch wheels, and tow hitch preparation.

Tiguan SE ($26,995) and SE 4Motion ($28,950) include with the 6-speed automatic with manual mode, leatherette seating, an 8-way power driver's seat with recline, heated front seats, privacy glass, heated windshield washer nozzles, Car-Net services, and 17-inch alloy wheels.The SE Appearance edition ($29,620) adds 18-inch wheels, SiriusXM satellite radio, touchscreen Premium radio, power-reclining front seats, fog and cornering lights, a rearview camera, keyless entry with pushbutton start, and silver-color roof rails; SE Appearance edition is available with 4Motion all-wheel drive ($31,575).

Tiguan SEL ($32,670) and SEL 4Motion ($34,625) come with the panoramic sunroof and navigation, automatic climate control, and Fender premium audio.

Tiguan R-Line ($36,535) and R-Line 4Motion ($38,490) feature a sports suspension with 19-inch alloy wheels, leather seating surfaces, chrome interior accents, power front seats with power lumbar and memory for the driver, intermittent wipers with rain sensor, auto-dimming mirror, power folding heated outside mirrors, bi-xenon headlights with AFS, LED daytime running lights, low-beam assist, coming-home function.

Safety equipment includes frontal and side-thorax airbags, curtain airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitor.Volkswagen's Intelligent Crash Response System automatically shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard warning lights if the vehicle is involved in certain types of collisions.Optional all-wheel drive can enhance handling stability in slippery conditions.

Walkaround

Volkswagen Tiguan styling was done in California, when compact SUVs looked like a good idea but hadn't reached the popularity they enjoy today, for practical reasons driven by fuel mileage.It's a nice size: 174 inches long, 71 inches wide and 66 inches tall, which Volkswagen calls the perfect size for city dwelling and country living.(We won't be wisecrackers and suggest that if that's true, then every other Volkswagen is either too big or too small for city or country living.Then again, maybe we will.)

The windshield is lightly raked, and the beltline creeps up almost imperceptibly.Side windows appear bigger than they are because of black frames.There's not much shape at the rear, with a thick C-pillar that's nearly vertical; meanwhile, the rear glass tapers a bit toward the roof, where there's a small spoiler, mounted on the glass not the roof, so it doesn't look like the Tiguan is trying to be racy.

Unlike many SUVs, even compacts, the tailgate doesn't look big and flat, because it's not.A ridge runs back from the squared-off rear wheel arches and wraps around the tailgate; imagine rainwater rolling down the rear glass, shooting off that ridge and flying rearward.Teardrop taillights add to the tidy back end, by not being blocky or radical.Plus, hooray, they're totally red: no clear, no white, no chrome.

The front overhang is short, and there's one clean horizontal swipe that makes up the grille and headlamps, sweeping slightly upward around the corners onto the fenders.Compared to that big dumb grin that the Mazda3 has tapered down (but will never live down), the Tiguan bears a forced stretched smile.The 14 LEDs at the corners of that smile are daytime running lights, and look cool.

Under the bumper there's a honeycombed opening in the fascia, and beneath that a gray panel like a skid plate, with three more openings.Integrated into the bumper at each side are honeycomb panels housing foglamps.Volkswagen has called it a tough new look for the urban jungle, forgetting that the days of the Hummer are over.

Interior

We love the clarity and simplicity of the Tiguan SE's touchscreen display and controls.Volkswagen gets it! Everything you need to know and do, especially with the radio and navigation, with no distractions while driving.Consumer Reports doesn't like the touch screen.Consumer Reports usually gets it right, but in this case we think they got it wrong.So we say yes to the Navigation option.

The speedometer and tachometer are big and beautiful.Between them is a multi-function trip computer that easily presents the information you use on a trip, especially fuel mileage and distance to empty.Bluetooth is standard.

Interior trim is soft plastic and faux brushed metal.Our Tiguan SE had the V-Tex leatherette, and you could have fooled us.The doors open wide for easy ingress and egress.There's only fair headroom and legroom for five adults, however.And there's an over-the-shoulder blind spot, because of the large C-pillar.

In the rear of the Tiguan, occupants get 35.8 inches of legroom, considerably less than the competition: for example the Chevrolet Equinox (39.9), Mazda CX-5 (39.3), Honda CR-V (38.3), and Subaru Forester (38.0).

The 40/20/40 folding rear seat might make up for the lack of legroom, especially for a young couple that's into outdoor activity, even if they have a kid or two.The cargo-carrying options of a 40/20/40 are many.There's a modest 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat; more if the rear seats are slid forward by their adjustable six inches.

Cargo space with the seats folded flat is 56.1 cubic feet, which is a bit light compared to the competition.At an event called Mudfest, held by the Northwest Automotive Press Association, the Tiguan got beat by the winning Mazda CX-5 in the compact SUV class, mostly because of its limited cargo space.However, like the Honda Fit, the Tiguan's front passenger seat folds almost flat to accommodate, say, a kayak or a stack of 8-foot-long two-by-four boards.

The liftgate is wide, and opens with the key fob on most models.Inside are cargo hooks and a 12-volt outlet.

Our Tiguan SE was equipped the panoramic sunroof, which is massive: triple the size of some others, including the VW Golf.One panel opens and another is fixed; it has a shade, and, according to Volkswagen, is aerodynamically and acoustically optimized.It's sweet, but not cheap.And it's the closest thing you can get to a convertible in a compact SUV.The Tiguan SE is a good choice with or without the panoramic sunroof.

Driving Impression

On the autocross course at Mudfest, a tight course defined by pylons, the Tiguan blew away the competition: not just handling, but engine and transmission too.The compact SUV entries were Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, Mini Countryman, Nissan Juke, and Subaru Impreza.The CX-5 got our vote on the strength of its value, fuel mileage, and cargo space; it won the compact SUV category.

Except for some models of the Ford Escape, the Acura RDX is about the only compact SUV that feels as sporty as the Tiguan; and the RDX has a V6 and costs much more.If you want a compact SUV that can handle off-road (with 4Motion) but feels like a sports car, the Tiguan is for you.The 2.0-liter Volkswagen/Audi intercooled turbocharged engine has been around a long time, and it keeps getting better, now with direct injection and variable intake timing.It makes 200 horsepower and 207 foot-pounds of torque, from a low 1700 rpm.We've never experienced a four-cylinder that feels this amazingly smooth at 90 mph.You'll never think its acceleration is too slow.

The 6-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode is a dream.It's got a Sport mode and Dynamic Shift Program.Sixth gear, as with a growing number of recent cars, is a double overdrive, which helps raise the government's Highway rating to 26 mpg.Also in pursuit of fuel mileage, the transmission was re-programmed in 2013 to shift at lower rpm, which it easily can do because of the strong torque.We like it.

Not all all-wheel-drive systems are the same, and the Volkswagen 4Motion is one of the best, along with Audi's quattro and Subaru's all-wheel drive.Acura's SH-AWD is good, but the Acura RDX does not use SH-AWD; only the bigger and more expensive Acura MDX does.It's Volkswagen's electro-hydraulic 4Motion that leads to the super handling that enabled our Tiguan to its big win on the autocross course.Tiguan's 4Motion Haldex center differential continuously varies the torque between the front and rear wheels, from 90-10 to 0-100, depending on where it's needed for traction.No spinning wheels means no lost traction and quicker acceleration performance, particularly when turning sharply at the same time.

The Mudfest event is appropriately named.We blasted the Tiguan around in the mud, including through deep ruts, where the Tiguan's 28-degree approach angle came into play, although the chassis did drag.When you have the opportunity to compare AWD systems back-to-back like this, you can clearly feel the difference.For surefootedness in the slime, the Subaru Impreza and Mazda CX-5 held up to the Tiguan, the Honda CR-V wasn't too bad, while the Kia Sportage and Mini Countryman spun their wheels far behind.

Mounted in a lightweight, one-piece aluminum subframe, the Tiguan's strut-type front suspension has long-travel coil springs and lower control arms.At the rear, a beefy four-link system is mounted in a high-strength steel subframe with a broad lower wishbone on each side.

We found the freeway ride in the Tiguan to be smooth.On the same roads, an Acura RDX transmitted uncomfortable jolts.The 1.6-liter Ford Escape felt jouncy, but the 2.0-liter Escape was smooth like the Tiguan.

The brakes keep up with the Tiguan's sporty character, using 12.3-inch vented discs in front, and a feature that wipes water from the discs in wet weather.The brakes stay applied for a couple of seconds when starting off on an incline.

Summary

The Volkswagen Tiguan's 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and 6-speed automatic transmission are silky smooth, the handling superb, and all-wheel-drive system sophisticated.Cargo space, rear legroom, and fuel mileage are so-so, while the price with the niceties can get up there, for a compact SUV.We recommend the Tiguan SE 4Motion with Navigation for its smooth ride quality over the firmer SEL sports suspension.

Sam Moses filed this report after his test drive of the Tiguan SE in the Pacific Northwest.
