Should I buy the Volkswagen Tiguan?
Like any other Volkswagen vehicle, Tiguan regularly tops the charts in its respective category. The new 2008 model has been revamped from the ground up and is now 10.6 inches longer than its predecessor. That added space allows for an optional third row of seats and pretty much transforms the vehicle. Speaking of space, passengers get 123.9 cubic feet, while cargo space can be extended to 73.5 cubic feet with rear seats folded down. The single engine offered is a 184-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder coupled with an eight-speed conventional automatic transmission. The price, you ask? Volkswagen Tiguan starts at around $25k for front-wheel drive and goes up to $38k for the all-wheel drive version.
