This was my first time driving the Volkswagen Tiguan; I think my expectations may have been too high. I always imagined the Tiguan to be a GTI with more ground clearance, but it's not.
My major beef is with the driver's seating position. It's awkward and almost impossible to find a comfortable setting. Even more annoying is the fact that the steering wheel fails to tilt down far enough.
On the road however, the Tiguan is fairly buttoned down. And given the vehicle's 3433-pound curb weight, the 2.0T engine provides sufficient power for passing whether on the highway or a two-lane road.
