Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TDI SE Tiptronic

Volkswagen

Review

The 4x4/SUV sector was a cause for concern for fleet managers last year with residual values taking a nosedive, but recent auction reports show that the market has almost recovered.

That makes models such as the Tiguan more tempting again, blending financial good sense (40% retained value after three-years/ 60,000-miles) with a package drivers covet, especially in our test car which mates the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The Tiptronic unit is one of the best semi-autos, but it does have some downsides.

The Tiguan emits 199g/km of CO2, compared with 167g/km for the manual version (an increase of six benefit-in-kind tax bands).

But that, unfortunately, is the price you pay for opting for an SUV. Even if it is a small one.
 

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
