The Tiguan continues to own its sense of uniqueness on various fronts relative to other Sport Utility Vehicles in its segment. It emphasizes a lot on general family hauling activities, versatility, refinement, interior quality and performance. As you can see, the Tiguan is virtually an outlier and contrasts to most SUVs in the market.

Many might dismiss the credibility of the Tiguan as a practical SUV as it does not prioritize on what it should – utility. However, with its high level of versatility it will be difficult to dismiss it as just another crossover in the market trying to make some sales. Another interesting feature that you’ll notice whilst driving the Tiguan is its tall and unobstructed view of the road ahead.

It comes with a smaller size in comparison to other vehicles in the segment. This, despite others viewing it as a detriment, is in fact practical especially when you have to fit in very tight places.
