Upscale features for a compact SUV - 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
By mds - January 18 - 1:11 pm
I have owned my 2015 Tiguan for about 1 month and find it quiet, smooth and nimble. My biggest complaint is the seriously under powered stereo system on the SE with Appearance model. There is an upgrade to the stereo system but only for the SEL and R line option packages. The instrument panel is also very dated. The gauges and instruments look just like the 2010 Jetta! In a world where electronics technology is constantly evolving and getting better, the stereo system and instrument panel are antiquated and need the immediate attention of the VW engineers.

Tiguan is handsome European crossover SUV. Pretty fast with a 200 horsepower strong engine, great visibility, amazing suspension I ever see. Tiguan go through any bumps smooth! Fun to drive and nice precisely handling. The smooth ride gets offset by a somewhat noisy engine when accelerating hard.
base model but still upscale - 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan

I am leasing a '15 S 4Motion; the only options are heated seats, Monster Mats and wheel locks. Even though it's the "old" 2.0 Turbo engine, there's plenty of kick and I love playing with the manual shift feature of the 6-speed automatic. I'm a fan of German cars in general and have owned at least 10 VWs, so am a bit biased too, but I do feel a bit special on the road in the company of so many ubiquitous CRVs, RAV-4s, Equinoxes, etc. The only other crossover I even considered was the Mazda CX-5, which is neat but which can't match the Tiguan's performance. Plus there are great deals to be had now. It's comfortable and unusual in a sea of sameness.
An Overlooked Gem - 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
By allinone - October 31 - 5:33 am
Just got my 2015 Sel 4Mo, First off I got a great deal, money interest rate, great time to buy. We looked at some new ones on the market and so old. We just could not find anything that had the handling, the simplicity of controls and the bluetooth system. We looked at some that were a total distraction when it came to using the Nav etc. Now the Nav system in the VW has not been updated and will soon however if you are not an overly techy person and want a system that works, has one of the best sound systems (fender) excellent pick-up, comfort, Car-Net instant connect for help, directions Etc. GET THIS CAR! The CarNet is excellent. You can set it so you will know if someone exceeds MPH.
First impressions - 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan

Have a car for a week (after driving used Lexus RX3303 for 6 years) and have first disappointments I test drive SE model but bought SEL with more options and to my surpirise has discovered that -- as fas as VW think power seat is one that out of 4 adjustments (up/down, lumbar, fwd/back and recline) it is enough to have only ONE powered and three manual. Only recline function is power - be aware. -- in a fully loaded car in 2015 VW did NOT make lights off automatic! This is such a surpise (and annoyance) to remember again to switch off lights when you leaving the car.
