What our customers are saying about the Volkswagen Tiguan
Tinush - My import used VW Tiguan 2.0 TSI 4Motion is the best car for the UAE. Cold A/C, comfortable interior, safety features are great, and it looks decent as well. Pros: Style, space inside and a/c. Cons: Price tag with options.
Terry - I rented one of these cars for a while. After a week I had to buy myself a pre owned R Line TSI Bluemotion Technology model. Fantastic little motor underneath the bonnet that produces enough power to get around. The price in UAE is slightly lower than export markets and the options a great too. Highly recommend these cars. Pros: Space, engine and fuel economy. Cons: No seven seater available.
Bilal - I looked for a pre owned Volkswagen Tiguan for sale in Dubai, UAE for a while because I was told they are great cars to get around Dubai in. Small from the outside but big on the inside and they are comfortable. Next year I want to buy a second hand R Line model. Pros: Fuel economy, size and options. Cons: Price for options.
