The Tiguan competes with a wide range of crossovers from other makers, including the Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 3008, BMW X1 and Ford Kuga. Like those, the Tiguan has some off-road ability, but is really built as a spacious five-seat family hatchback. It's not cheap, but its build quality and equipment levels are very good. All engines are smooth and economical, although the diesels make the best buys because they hold their value better.
