The Tiguan looks like a 4x4 and has some off-road ability, but it's made with city roads and motorways in mind. It is designed to offer the benefits enjoyed by 4x4 owners - a high, commanding driving position, cabin space, and a feeling of safety - while being relatively compact.
Volkswagen Touareg review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/touareg/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Touareg SUV was originally launched in 2003 and then significantly updated in 2010. It majors on luxury, although it also has the capability to tackle more extreme conditions than most drivers will ever experience. The latest version is much lighter than the original, despite being bigger.
Audi Q5 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/audi/q5/sports-utility-vehicle/review
Despite a firm ride and limited off-road ability, the Audi Q5 is still a very desirable car. Aimed at the Land Rover Freelander 2, it has the build quality and refinement of an Audi saloon but the practicality and space of a larger 4x4, so it's an excellent compromise.
Honda CR-V review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/honda/cr_v/suv/review
The Honda CR-V was one of the first SUVs to be introduced that prioritised driving on the road rather than going off it. It offers a high driving position, spacious interior and its size gives added security when driving in town. As well as space inside, Honda has given the CR-V a long list of luxury and safety equipment, but that has pushed the price up to the level of premium rivals like the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. Honda has made the CR-V more comfortable to drive, and it benefits from Honda's legendary reliability record.

Mitsubishi ASX review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mitsubishi/asx/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Mitsubishi ASX is one of a growing number of SUV-inspired family cars that have been introduced to compete against conventional hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf. Described as a crossover, it blends together the commanding driving position of an off-roader, with fuss-free hatchback-style handling.
Volkswagen Tiguan Review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Volkswagen Tuguan review http://bit.ly/wFeEwR
The VW Tiguan is good to drive, thanks to responsive engines and a finely balanced chassis. It has a pleasingly smart image, too, with a classy, spacious and flexible cabin.
It's not as cheap as some Japanese rivals and the ride is too firm. Rear visibility isn't great, while off-road ability is limited.

Audi Q3 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/audi/q3/sports-utility-vehicle/review
With the launch of the Audi Q3, the firm has entered the growing market for crossovers - cars which look like big, chunky off-roaders, but are as easy to drive and economical as a family hatchback. The Q3 is a direct rival for the BMW X1, MINI Countryman and Range Rover Evoque, and is built to Audi's usual high standards. Interior quality is excellent, and there's space for five inside
Tiguan - small river crossing - Ubatuba, Brazil
VW Tiguan 4Motion Sport&Style off-road capabilities.
I was already aware of the water crossing limits of the car, so I was not about to cross this small river.
However my Wife challenged it, teasing me.
I crossed it first, then I let her to cross it back so I coud make the video.
I have to confess I got concerned as I underestimated the depth when entering through the opposite margin.
But the Tiguan made it very well.
BMW X3 review - CarBuyer

The latest four-wheel drive SUV from BMW, the X3 is a very accomplished road car that sits just below the X5 in BMW's impressive line-up.
Nissan X-Trail review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/nissan/x_trail/sports-utility-vehicle/review
When it comes to practical family transport, the Nissan X-Trail is hard to beat. Front and four-wheel drive versions are available, both of which are good to drive. Nissan has long been renowned for its strong reliability record, and that shows no sign of changing in the X-Trail. Unlike many family 4x4s, the Nissan is actually very capable off-road, so if you need to venture off the beaten track it will do the job.

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Volkswagen mildly refreshed the Tiguan to make it a bit more modern and current. There's a new and somewhat refreshed front facia and some new trim on the inside of the car. There's only one engine choice for the 2012 VW Tiguan and thankfully it is an excellent one. Volkswagen's 2.0 liter turbo can be found in many other VW and even Audi cars like the Golf GTI and the Audi A4. In the Tiguan it makes for brisk acceleration times while providing plenty of stop light punch for a small crossover while delivering decent MPGs.
Ride and Handling. In two words: smooth and sporty
The Tiguan surprisingly big on the inside for what is small crossover on the outside. Backseat leg room is plentyful and with the rear seats folded down there's also tons of rooms for luggage or even bikes.
Ford Kuga review - CarBuyer
Full review: www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/ford/kuga/sports-utility-vehicle/review
Ford prefers to describe the Kuga as a 'crossover' rather than an SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle), and this accounts for some of its shortcomings in terms of practicality in the process. The petrol-powered model is fast but thirsty, so the better choice is the rounded, economical performance on offer from the 2.0 TDCi turbodiesel. Of the two trims, Zetec and Titanium, the former has all you need.
2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Track and Style Offroad Driving
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - 28 degrees: The powerful off-road version is offered in the Track & Field equipment line (base model) that is familiar from its predecessor and for the first time in a new top version, the Track & Style. With a 28 degree angle of approach, the Tiguan can even handle greater challenges off-road. Beneath the rugged redesigned bumper, underbody protection ensures the well-being of powertrain components. Visually, the central air intake is designed to be very flat in favour of underbody protection. Towards the sides of the SUV, the bumper is bordered by the protected, integrated fog lights. The grey underbody protection itself, which has three distinctive openings, was laterally framed by black air-flow guides.
VW Beetle review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/new-beetle/hatchback/review
The Volkswagen Beetle is a stylish hatchback that mixes modern mechanical parts with a look inspired by the big-selling original from the sixties. It's only offered as a three-door model and comes in standard, Design and top-spec Sport trims. There are two petrol engines available -- a 1.2-litre turbo and a 1.4-litre with turbo and Supercharger. The Beetle shares its mechanical components with the Volkswagen Golf hatchback, but has a more flamboyant look.
Volkswagen Sharan review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/sharan/mpv/review
The Sharan is a seven-seat MPV which seems built to last and boasts a large cabin with flexible seating for carrying large goods or large families. Unlike a lot of MPVs it boasts car-like handling and feels light on its feet on windy backroads. The engines are brilliant, offering frugal economy and punchy performance. The let-down is the high price-tag but some people will be willing to pay for the quality on offer here.
