When you see a Tiguan from the front, then you are not sure whether it is not yet a Touareg, so similar are the two. The different accentuations of the strips in the radiator grille benefit not as much there. One thus obtains with the Tiguan almost the same prestige as the Touareg, but at half the price. Maybe that is why it has such a high demand.
No, that's not the only reason, because the more noble 'brother' Audi Q5 sells best by far in the anyhow successful SUV context of Audi. Another reason why the Tiguan is so similar to the Touareg are its impressive dimensions. Therewith it also surpasses the group brother, from another, the Porsche Macan not to mention. However, the Tiguan bothers size and fine-tuning a little, also concerning consumption opposite to the Q5.
But the Tiguan is clearly the more favourable car, compared to the Q5 and the Macan anyway. It also has the most space on the back seat. Compared to the Touareg it is significantly more worse in the off-road abilities. However, this seems to be pretty no matter when buying a Tiguan. Sometimes it might fulfil only the increased need for protection of women and their desire for higher seating position. However, the car to use as a Mom taxi would really be a pity. 01/15
