This is a VW Tiguan Review. 2017 Tiguan or 2018 Tiguan. The next generation all-new VW, or Volkswagen Tiguan will be arriving in 2017 as a 2018 model. This is the first small SUV or Crossover to be built of VW’s MQB platform. The new Tiguan is larger, with more interior space for up to 7-passengers and three-rows of seats. The Tiguan will have an advanced all wheel drive (AWD) system with dynamic chassis control (DCC) and will come with a turbocharged 4-cylinder or DTI. The next VW Tiguan will now have what it takes to compete in the heart of the compact crossover segment.
The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek is formally the XV Crosstrek, or Subaru Crosstreck. With more ground clearance than a subcompact crossover, like the Honda HR-V or Mazda CX-3, this new Subaru is more manageable than the popular Compact crossovers like the Honda CR-V, Toyota Rav4 and Forester.
For Canadians that like to go off the beaten path, the 220mm of ground clearance will help this Subie Crosstrek in winter driving and off-road. Not a traditional SUV, this tall wagon style of compact crossover is what many Canadians are looking for.
Competitors to the VW Tiguan are the Subaru Crosstrek, the Jeep Renegade, Jeep Patriot, Ford Escape, Jeep Compass, Honda HR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander, Mazda CX-3, Fiat 500X, Chevy Trax, Chevrolet Trax, Nissan Rogue, Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-5, Mazda CX-3, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Subaru Forester, Mini Countryman, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Buick Encore, Volkswagen Tiguan, VW Tiguan, BMW X1
