Grey VW Tiguan from the front

A used VW Tiguan is one of the most desirable family SUVs on the market. The Tiguan combines a spacious and smooth driving experience with affordable running costs. That is why it is one of Volkswagen’s best-selling vehicles worldwide.

The Tiguan is available in a range of trims, but its timeless exterior remains largely unchanged since its first release in 2007. It is a compact, five-door SUV with a sleek interior and ample passenger space that you can adjust to create an even larger boot. This model has also built a reputation for bringing smart technology into the driving experience, and many used Tiguans for sale are equipped with features such as lane change assist and an onboard infotainment system.

The Tiguan is an attractive choice compared to other mid-sized family SUVs. When it comes to price tag, a used Tiguan for sale sits between models like the Nissan Qashqai and sportier alternatives like the BMW X1. Known for delivering a satisfying onboard experience, the Tiguan is an ideal blend of quality and comfort as well as affordability.

Used VW Tiguans will be either a four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. They come with petrol, diesel or plug-in hybrid engines.

Practicality and style of the car

One of the VW Tiguan’s great advantages is practicality. While it is a compact SUV, it still offers plenty of passenger comfort. Many newer models are 60mm longer and 30mm wider than the original, offering plenty of head and legroom for three adults in the back. It’s this space that really sets this model apart from competitors like the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Renault Kadjar.

Used VW Tiguans also offer plenty of storage space. There is a 520-litre boot, and folding the rear seats can extend boot space to 1,655 litres. There’s also plenty of storage for passengers. Lots of handy cubbies, a glove box, large door bins and a deep storage container between the two front seats keep the interior free from clutter.

Running costs

Volkswagen designed the Tiguan with fuel economy and running costs in mind, and for a mid-range SUV, this is one of the model’s strengths. Depending on which trim and engine you choose, you can expect affordable running costs and a good mpg ratio.

Most Tiguan models also fall into a relatively low insurance group – normally around 11. The sportier R Line will be a little higher, but generally, a used VW Tiguan is relatively affordable to insure.

How a used VW Tiguan drives

Used VW Tiguans come with a range of different engines. Most of the petrol engines are either 1.5-litre or 2.0-litre, which can generate more than 148bhp. You can also find models for a lower premium that reach 128bhp. While performance varies across engine types and vehicle ages, petrol Tiguans usually hit between 28 and 46.3mpg, which is above the average mpg for SUVs.

You can also find used VW Tiguans for sale with diesel engines. These engines tend to be 1.5-litre or 2.0-litre and have an improved mpg range of between 34.9 and 55.4.

The Tiguan is also available as a plug-in hybrid, with a 1.4-litre engine paired to an electric motor. This offers faster acceleration than the petrol and diesel engines, as well as a superior fuel economy, achieving between 148.7 and 188.3mpg as the engine switches between petrol and electric.

The Tiguan ‘R’ range has a much faster, high-performance 2.0-litre petrol engine that can achieve 320bhp. This model can do 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, making it a particularly quick SUV.

Features you can expect in a Volkswagen Tiguan


VW Tiguan interior front seats from the passenger side

As you would expect from a family SUV, the Tiguan is spacious and comfortable. While exact interior specifications vary, you’ll find leather steering wheels and gear sticks as standard in most models. Some even have heated seats to ease winter mornings.

Complementing the ample space, the driver’s seat is slightly elevated, offering a truly comfortable drive and expansive view of the road. The sound of the engine from the cabin is largely hushed at low revs. Even at high revs the cabin is still relatively quiet.

All used VW Tiguans for sale feature an eight-inch touchscreen. This heat-sensitive touchpad controls everything from the music to the air conditioning. Volkswagen has saved key interactions for the multi-functional steering wheel. On some models the steering wheel is predominantly touchpad, which enhances the driver's experience.

Technology is a large part of the Tiguan’s smooth drive. While a suite of tech upgrades are found across different trims, plenty of intuitive features are standard. Notable inclusions are the remote start and Digital Cockpit instrument cluster, which puts key information about your drive on your dashboard. Newer versions come with automated driver assist, heated seats, parking assistance, and speed and boundary limits. You can adjust all these settings using the smartphone app before you set off.

The Tiguan also scores very well on safety. There are a wide range of standard safety features, such as seven airbags around the cabin, including for the driver’s knee. Some models may come with added safety kit. There’s also autonomous emergency braking, as well as an active bonnet to help protect pedestrians. It is worth knowing that the Tiguan’s 2016 Euro NCAP crash test returned a five-star safety rating, making it a particularly reassuring family SUV.
