Used Volkswagen Tiguan for sale
The Volkswagen Tiguan is a medium-sized family SUV that has a spacious interior and a host of advanced technology.
SUVs have been big business in the UK for some time now, and the Tiguan has always been a firm favourite because it offers an upmarket finish alongside affordable running costs.
Reasons the Tiguan makes a good used car purchase are:
- Handsome appearance
- Spacious cabin and large boot
- Quality interior finish
- Refined driving experience
- Efficient engines
Engines and Driving Experience
The Tiguan is all about offering a smooth and quiet driving experience, which makes it a fine companion during commutes or long journeys. You will have to sacrifice a bit of comfort if you go for one of the sportier R-Line or R models, since they get stiffer suspension and larger wheels.

Practicality and Running Costs
Thanks to a spacious cabin and a large boot, the Tiguan makes for a great everyday family SUV. The rear doors open nice and wide, providing convenient access to fit a child's seat via the ISOFIX anchor points in the back.
With 520 litres of boot space, you won't struggle to get all of your shopping in on the weekends. If you do happen to need more space, then the rear bench can slide forward to help create a 615-litre storage space. Depending on the engine and gearbox you opt for, the Tiguan can tow up to 2,500kg.
Unless you're opting for the high performance 'R' model, insurance groups range between 11 and 27, which is pretty reasonable for this type of car. Affordable servicing and maintenance can be carried out at your nearest Evans Halshaw retailer.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The Tiguan has always borrowed a lot of its interior design features from the Volkswagen Golf, which means you're getting a logically laid-out cabin that's well-made. We particularly like the central touchscreen, which offers a vibrant display and intuitive navigation of the system's menus and settings.
Life models occupy the bottom of the model range, but benefit from LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors for the front and rear, and adaptive cruise control.
Active versions build on this with a powered tailgate, keyless entry and ambient lighting. R-Line models are popular because of their sportier accents and features, but they also get Matrix LED headlights and a digital instrument cluster.
The Tiguan scored five stars in its Euro NCAP crash test, achieving 96 percent and 84 percent for adult and child occupant protection respectively. Standard features include:
- Automatic emergency braking
- Lane-keeping assistance
- Electronic stability control (ESC)
- Traction control
Is the Volkswagen Tiguan right for me?
If you're in the market for a medium-sized family SUV then the Volkswagen Tiguan is hard to beat at its price point. It manages to match the build quality of more premium manufacturers, yet doesn't cost much more than cheaper alternatives.
Because of the fierce competition in this segment, we recommend checking out other models before committing. The Mazda CX-5 is a brilliant all-rounder, as is the Ford Kuga. If you want something premium, then a Mercedes-Benz GLA or BMW X1 should fit the bill nicely.
