And the car looks premium as well. To Me the Tiguan in Blue/Black shade looks a lot more premium than the expensive Kodiaq. The Kodiaq appears pricey when you compare to the likes of Compass/Tuscon, but to me it has to be compared against the likes of GLA/Q3 and X1 and this where Tiguan shines. Only grouse is the 140HP tune which is pretty ordinary at this price point!

Guessed so, and thatís why I asked that question. Purely on safety front, please discourage your son from standing up with sunroof open even if you are on crawling speeds.

Awesome sj_koova, We did an 1800 Km + drive from Mumbai to Hampi and back, on the national and state highways and then in & around Hampi, with a mix of spirited driving, soft off-roading, drive through small towns and very rough roads, I got the mileage of 14.5 for the trip. Few pics with spectacular Hampi as the backdrop. I must say, I did not miss my Laura or GT, Tiguan is in the league of its own.

Yes I agree, still remember the Delhi incident.
I usually don't let him stand, but this time I melted on his pleading.

When I see the impressive fuel economy, I am able to forgive Volkswagen for the detune they have done on Tiguan. I feel it is a reasonable compromise.
I have started loving off beaten tracks and roads that lead to nowhere. I ventured into many of the jeep tracks inside Munnar tea gardens this time and had a fair share of adventures. And that is a best way to enjoy the beauty of Munnar.

Thank You Aditya & Jaggu for your insightful review. The discussions/comments were also helpful.

It appears that the sale of Tiguan has been few and far between. The reason are many and range from its high pricing to its ordinary exteriors to average after sales service network to mention a few. What concerns me is that on account of lack of sales, Tiguan should not go the Touareg way and get discontinued. That would spell worries of lack of spare parts for instant replacement to poor resale value for the product itself. Do the bhpian's think VW would do a repeat of Touareg or do you think VW would not risk losing customer credibility by discontinuing models ?

TIA
