2022 Volkswagen Tiguan is barely new but nicely improved

This SUV's changes for the latest model year are conservative to say the least, but it's still worthy of your consideration.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

The Tiggy's interior is made of quality materials and is highly functional.

Fold the rear backrest down and you get more than 73 cubic feet of luggage space.

You get loads of headroom and legroom in the Tiguan's backseat.

This is a friendly and familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.

The Tiguan's new touch-sensitive buttons sound like a bad idea but they work shockingly well.

The materials used in this SUV are borderline ritzy.

The Tiguan lettering has been moved to the center of the liftgate for a more premium look.
