Model Highlights

The Tiguan is offered in S, LE, SE and SEL trims; both are offered either with front-wheel drive or 4Motion all-wheel drive, and while a 6-speed automatic transmission is available on either model, the S can be had with a 6-speed manual.

With either transmission, performance is strong from the 2.0L, direct-injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The engine delivers a stout 207 lb-feet of torque relatively low in the rev range to bring it the response of a larger V6. Fuel economy estimated to be as good as 19 mpg city, 26 highway with the manual gearbox.

The Tiguan has a sport-tuned, firm-but-absorbent suspension and its electromechanical power steering provides more reassurance and feedback than is typical in this class. Together with the strong engine, confident braking and impressive grip, the Tiguan feels much sportier than might be assumed from the taller utility-vehicle profile.

As with the rest of the Volkswagen line, the Tiguan comes with firm, well-bolstered seats in front, while the backseats both recline 23 degrees and slide six inches fore and aft to balance comfort, legroom and cargo. The seatback folds forward to expand cargo space and the front passenger seatback also folds forward flat to fit exceptionally long cargo such as skis or ladders.

The Tiguan's available 4Motion all-wheel drive sends 90 percent of torque to the front wheels normally, but when needed, it can send nearly all to the rear wheels to provide the best traction. Safety features are also strong on the Tiguan; standard on all models are front side thorax airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes.

The Tiguan S comes with a very generous list of standard equipment that includes 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air conditioning, 8-way adjustable driver and passenger front seats, and four power outlets. The LE upgrades the stereo to one with a media interface and an iPod cable as well as heated, power-adjustable leatherette seats. The SE model steps up to 18-inch alloys, fog lamps, a roof rack, extra chrome trim, heated seats, heated washer nozzles, leather trim, a power driver seat, a trip computer and an upgraded sound system. At the top of the line, the SEL adds even larger, 19-inch alloy wheels plus bi-xenon headlamps, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, rain-sensing wipers, a self-dimming rearview mirror, a Smart Key entry system, a navigation system, push-button start and adjustable ambient interior lighting.

Major options include a sunroof on the S and SE, navigation on the SE and SEL, while a Dynaudio premium sound system package is available on the Tiguan SEL.


Model News

The Tiguan remains relatively unchanged for 2013. An electronic parking brake is standard across the entire model range, as is a hill-hold feature that keeps the vehicle from rolling backwards on uphill starts. New trim pieces include a leather wrapped multifunction steering wheel and a leather wrapped shift knob. SE trims get a partially power adjustable passenger seat while SEL trims get one that is fully power adjustable. SEL trims also receive a rear back up camera.


Value Writeup

The Volkswagen Tiguan stands out in the crowded field of compact crossover utility vehicles as being just a little sportier and more fun to drive. Handling and maneuverability are its strengths. The Tiguan's turbocharged engine offers impressive performance, while still being reasonably good with gas and the tall-roof design affords impressive interior space--especially for backseat occupants. It's also been a strong safety achiever; the IIHS named the 2010 Tiguan a Top Safety Pick for its excellent occupant protection.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.

Consequence
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
