This new Tiguan is Volkswagen’s attempt to get a stronger foothold in the hot SUV market. The redesign, the Tiguan’s first since the 2009 model year, includes a longer wheelbase and a key addition: a third row seat. It's roomy up front, but that third row doesn't suffice. It's purely for kids — and small ones at that. It would be challenging for an adult to crawl back there. Overall, the design is bland and does nothing to make VW stand out in the crowded SUV space.
