For 2012 Volkswagen mildly refreshed the Tiguan to make it a bit more modern and current. There’s a new and somewhat refreshed front facia and some new trim on the inside of the car. There’s only one engine choice for the 2012 VW Tiguan and thankfully it is an excellent one.
Volkswagen’s 2.0 liter turbo can be found in many other VW and even Audi cars like the Golf GTI and the Audi A4. In the Tiguan it makes for brisk acceleration times while providing plenty of stop light punch for a small crossover while delivering decent MPGs.
Ride and Handling. In two words: smooth and sporty
The Tiguan surprisingly big on the inside for what is small crossover on the outside. Backseat leg room is plentyful and with the rear seats folded down there’s also tons of rooms for luggage or even bikes. Check out the review below below as we spend a week with the Tiguan in our driveway.
