The Tiguan is a compact off-roader, developed from the VW Golf. It’s Volkswagen’s contender against the likes of the Ford Kuga, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
Originally launched in 2008, the Tiguan received a mid-life facelift in 2011. As well as an update to the front end and rear lights, the revised range has reduced CO2 emissions and extra comfort and safety features.
The Tiguan isn’t quite as practical as Volkswagen’s seven-seat Touran MPV, but it’s certainly very useable as a family car, as well as being desirable and smart-looking.

Save £3,777 on top-choice VW Tiguan 4×4
The Tiguan comes with a choice of 1.4-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines, but it’s the 2.0-litre BlueMotion diesel that make the most sense for a car of this size. We’d opt for the four-wheel drive variant with 140bhp in SE trim.
Our tests show claimed fuel economy for this model is slightly optimistic – we recorded an average of 43.5mpg, which is respectable but some 5.2mpg less than VW’s claimed figure.
This models retails for £25,985 at list price, but Autobytel is currently offering a £3,777 discount, dropping the price to £22,208.

Hot Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK-sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
