Should I Buy the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan?
The Tiguan is one of the rare small SUVs to offer a third-row seat, and even though that third row isn’t the most comfortable place to sit, it’s nice to have in a pinch. We wish cabin materials were as nice as they are in some other VW models, but we like the amount of cargo space this SUV offers.
