Had a 2.0t Tiguan as a rental for a week before. Overall it was peppy and seemed to be spacious on the inside. The auto E brake would do what it wanted to do on occasion and the steering wheel would make a sound as you turned it back and forth as if it were rubbing or something. Really not that big of a deal.
It was actually not to bad to drive. Overall i would not buy one because i think that they look a little funny even thought the highly optioned one does look better.
