The VW Tiguan has a large boot space for the petrol model. However, as the diesel version has a larger tank, the boot size is compromised slightly; making it a little smaller than other cars in its class. The rear seats can slide forward or be folded flat to expand the boot space. The head, leg and elbow room in the Tiguan makes for a comfortable ride and the rear bench is slightly raised in the centre, effectively creating more legroom for the passenger in the middle. The dashboard of the Tiguan has a classy, neat layout with a solid look and feel and the vehicle lives up to the high standards of the VW. The Tiguan has been tested in harsh conditions, such as the rough terrain in Namibia, South Africa and can cope with light off-road duties. On the tarmac, it is a smooth and easy car to drive with its light controls, tall driving positions and compact proportions. The Tiguan features airbags in the front, side of the front seats and the steering wheel. This vehicle is one of the safest in its class. Some of the features included as a standard with the Tiguan are: power hearted side mirrors and air conditioning.
