The Tiguan, named by blending the words ‘tiger’ and ‘iguana’, is one of the few so-called tweenies that bridge the gap between the compact and midsize crossover segments — it’s large for a compact, but a little shy of being a true midsizer. This is underscored by the fact it’s one of the few in the segment to offer three rows of seating.
The resulting package is remarkably roomy. There’s plenty of space in the middle row, and they’re fairly easy to move out of the way for third-row access — which is very much on the tight side for adults, but it works for kids and certainly beats walking in the snow! As for cargo space, it ranges from 340 litres behind the third row to 1,860 when everything is folded.
Move forward and the front half of the cabin is a cut above class standards. The materials are off the top shelf, and the seats and driving position are comfortable. The infotainment system follows this lead, as it’s one of the easiest to use in the segment. The eight-inch touchscreen (lesser trim levels get a smallish 6.5-inch display) makes good use of the available area by hiding most of the icons along the lower edge until a hand reaches for the screen.
