2014 Volkswagen Tiguan * Sweet Ride 2014

The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan sports a nice new quality interior but with the other Volkswagens we have tested this year leaves us wanting to like it more.

With beautiful quality of it's premium interior styling and materials the Volkswagen Tiguan is a bit tight for a vehicle in the SUV category.  This compact crossover is a bit too compact with very little cargo space and cramped back seats.

The 20/26 mpg does not impress us. We would like to see better gas milage for this smaller SUV. Another thing we noticed is that rear view backup camera is NOT standard which surprises us on any 2014 make or model. In 2018 a rear view camera will be mandatory by law.

With the lack of good gas milage, rear view backup camera and no USB ports and the extra space you need for gear, groceries and other goods we will have to pass on the 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan. Hopefully the 2015 model will show some improvements.
