Excellent purchase

published

Bought the VW Tiguan last year as a demo with <100km on the clock. Fully kitted it. No faults as yet, not enjoying reading some of the reviews - with an eye to future possible faults. Great car, little smaller internally that wanted and a little heavier on fuel (premium at that) than warranted for such a new car. Would recommend.

Purchased in April 2019 for $55,000.00.

A Great Car

published

The car is very nice. Brought brand new after comparing with BMW X3, Mercedes GLC, Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5. Price wise is not much cheaper than all above but it is with all options ticked. Only thing I wish it had is the heads up display. The servicing is pretty expensive and heavy on fuel consumption. Car has plenty of power and huge in internal space. There is a bit of wind noise from the side mirror at high speed.

Purchased in June 2019 at Volkswagen Dealers for $62,000.00.

Great quality and practical 7 seater. Killer engine.

published

2 months and 2000km into ownership of our high line 162 tsi high line with sound and vision, panoramic sun roof and R line pack. All positive, interior quality is high, and the engine especially in sports mode goes like the clappers. The extra 2 seats in the rear don’t offer enough room for adults for long trips but have come in handy for the kids and their friends. Shopped around for a while before buying and for the features at the price nothing compared. Love it!

Purchased in July 2019 for $59,000.00.

Best Car I've Owned

This is our weekend car. Its used mostly by my partner. We have already had the screen replaced under warranty and had the Panoramic Sunroof harness changed under a service campaign. But the car is great. Made in Germany.

Perfect economical family car!!

published

We purchased the VW Tiguan Allspace 6 weeks ago brand new and couldn’t be happier!! It is the perfect size for our family and the extra seats have come in handy on numerous occasions. We purchased the 2.0L Turbo Diesel and it fuel efficiency is outstanding!! We use this car for our everyday driving to and from school drop off, work and kids after school activities. So plenty of short local trips done. Have also done a couple of long distance trips to test fuel consumption and couldn’t be happier!! Well done VW you have produced a reliable and economical family car.

Tiguan R line

published

We’ve replaced our beloved Amarok with another veedub only because the Amarok didn’t have rear passenger airbags. We are actually glad we’ve made the swap because this model is leap and bounds from the previous model it replaced. The look first and foremost, looks mean and aggressive with its lines and bulges. The R line made this even a head turner with its 20in wheels and smoked lights. The extras we’ve got made this like an autonomous car, car assist and added safety features were most welcomed and works well. It’s definitely a solid build and the only gripe is because it’s so good, I see a lot of it on the road. Lastly, it drives like a petrol, meaning it’s quiet and the torque! It’s awesome.
