Test drive: Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 TSI Highline

SUVs tend to be the money maker for most carmakers. Let’s see if the Tiguan can do the same


Modern cars and the buyers’ increasing appetite for larger touchscreens and digital instrumentation has resulted in cabins that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi movie set. The Tiguan in Highline trim almost fits this bill, with the Active Info Display being one of the major feature advantage over the Comfortline.

But do you think a top-shelf Tiguan variant should ‘merely’ boast a 1.4-litre engine? With only the front-wheels doing the spinning? The SUV landscape has changed and its not wrong for the Tiguan to fit into market needs, provided that the ownership experience is a satisfactory one.

As for the driving experience, it appears that Volkswagen still has a very capable powertrain that brings an efficient yet decently powerful engine together with a slick gearbox.

Erm, I see some of you are about to respond to that statement. Best to bring you to our test drive video, then.
