For 2021, the Tiguan gets a couple of new body colours. The base model comes standard with front-wheel drive, but customers can also opt for an all-wheel drive model. This German compact SUV is motivated by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 184 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It stands out from most competitors with the option of a third row. However, towing capacity is limited to 1,500 pounds. A mid-cycle refresh is due for 2022.
