VERDICT

The Tiguan will primarily compete against the likes of upcoming Jeep Compass, Skoda Kodiaq and ventures into the territory of Audi Q3. This being a strategically important product for Volkswagen in their portfolio, they got it spot-on with the equipment levels. A slightly lower pricing would have set the sales chart on fire. Nevertheless, with the primary focus on the safety parameters, it simply ticks all the right boxes.

Stay tuned for the road test review..
