The 2016 Tiguan is Volkswagen’s compact SUV, meant to take on rivals like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape. The Tiguan tends to get lost amid the sea of better-selling competitors, but if you look closely it has merits. This VW crossover SUV has an upscale feel, while its standard 200-horsepower turbocharged engine and sporty handling make it one of the more fun-to-drive SUVs. Even with a price cut for 2016, the Tiguan is more expensive than rivals. The VW’s smaller size makes it easy to park, but that also means less cargo space. It’s also less fuel-efficient than competitors. The Tiguan isn’t for everyone, but if you want a small German SUV with sporty handling, it deserves a look.
