The 2.0 Turbocharger Gasoline engine – Tiguan is among the few brand celebrated this year by VW. It looks small but has come with 6 speed Tiptronic at the same time All Time 4wheel Drive. The pedals and gearlever are accurate and perfectly weighted the handling reassuring and precise. With sharper steering, better body control and more grip than many rivals, the VW is capable on country roads and, unlike some off-roaders; it’s never cumbersome around town.   

Unveiling that the Tiguan in Nigeria is quite impressive because its similar to other Golf-based models which many Nigerians are used to. The car is the Volkswagen’s first compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) with a generic VW design, and a Golf-style grille and lights added to a squared-off body. It comes across as a solid compact-SUV, but there’s nothing particularly exciting about the shape. It’s neither rugged nor individual. Buyers have a single five-door body style to choose from.

The dash design is similar to that in the Golf Plus, and an electronic parking brake frees up space for stowage on the centre console. Add this to large cubbies and deep door pockets, and the driving environment scores well for practicality. All-round visibility is excellent, even though you don’t sit as high as in some compact SUV rivals. Rear space isn’t as good as some alternatives, though, and a high boot floor means it carries just 395 litres as standard.

But the only concern is how to source N4.1 million to pick one; the cost is not at the range of lower level class coupled with the economic conditions of the country.
