( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Volkswagen mildly refreshed the Tiguan to make it a bit more modern and current. There's a new and somewhat refreshed front facia and some new trim on the inside of the car. There's only one engine choice for the 2012 VW Tiguan and thankfully it is an excellent one. Volkswagen's 2.0 liter turbo can be found in many other VW and even Audi cars like the Golf GTI and the Audi A4. In the Tiguan it makes for brisk acceleration times while providing plenty of stop light punch for a small crossover while delivering decent MPGs.

Ride and Handling. In two words: smooth and sporty

The Tiguan surprisingly big on the inside for what is small crossover on the outside. Backseat leg room is plentyful and with the rear seats folded down there's also tons of rooms for luggage or even bikes.

If you get one at a good price then i would get one. Oh and the adjustability of the front center armrest is awesome.
The big question is: How reliable are these beautiful machines?
When is someone going to call Nathan handsome, hot or doable in the comments? Is they why Dave left? Too handsome, too distracting? Still love TFL!

My Car!
To be honest, the exterior of the Hyundai Tucson looks better than this.

We had a 2012 Tiguan SE and it was an attractive, fun, and safe vehicle! The steering and handling is great, which comes in handy during emergency maneuvers. Kept us out of quite a few collisions on the road. The 2.0 TSI is one of my personal favorite engines. The vehicle had a sporting edge, but the ride was never too harsh. If you don't mind the price tag, and you're looking for a fun, attractive, and safe small SUV, I would definitely recommend the 2012 Tiguan. I am a big VW fan!

PS you don't need to keep pushing the button for closing/openning the sun screen, one touch is enough :)

That's true, as you better know Audi is owned by VW; therefore, Q3 is on the same platform that Tiguan is, and also they share the same engine to reduce production costs. Same story about many Toyota and Lexus models.

I own one and I love it. You don't need to spend 32K for the highest trim. A plus side of this car is even the lower trims are reasonably equipped! What makes this car different is the level VW paid attention for details.
