Volkswagen Tiguan - NZSUV

NZSUV Magazine reviewed the all-new 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan, and you can check out the video below.

Every now and then an SUV comes along that motoring journalists describe as ‘car-like on the road’. This is because many SUVs are not. Some of them suffer from significant body roll and handle like a jelly on jelly wheels. Not the new Tiguan. This thing is crisp, taut, stable and is about as close as an SUV gets to feeling like it was built for a driver who likes to drive with passion.

Regardless of the terrain, you and your friends or family will be comfortable. It’s considerably larger and more spacious than the previous generation, and the interior is smart, stylish and modern. It’s loaded with features and represents great value for money. Set it up in Sport mode via the central touch screen and you’re in for a treat on the road. The accelerator becomes more responsive and the steering even sharper. Handling is superb.

There’s plenty of power from the refined, responsive two-litre turbodiesel, which puts out 110kW and an impressive 340Nm of torque. Kick down gear changes from the seven speed auto box are slick and acceleration at speed is effortless. This, coupled with superb fuel economy of just 5.6L/100km, makes you realise just how clever these modern European diesels are.
