    .............................................................

    When it comes to family-friendly performance SUVs, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than this new Tiguan R. The question is, with a price tag of £46,000+, is it really worth it? Well, Mat’s here to find out!

    Sure, at first glance you may think it’s a regular family SUV, but once you peer a little closer, you’ll see there are a whole host of upgrades to be found! Starting with the outside, there are a number of styling updates to be found, from a roof spoiler \u0026 quad-tailpipes through to 21” alloys and tinted rear windows!

    But of course, that’s not all. The interior is plastered with blue R stitching and badges, and once you peer under the bonnet, you’ll find a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that delivers 320hp \u0026 420Nm!

    So what do you think - is this the perfect car for handling the school run? There’s only one way to find out - join Mat for his latest in-depth review!

I just think having something with off-road capability with massive wheels and tiny tyres is idiotic. I mean potholes alone make it stupid.

I can tell you 'the point' ... If you need a family car, and you're almost 2 metres tall, and the Mrs wants an SUV, but won't let you ALSO buy a 2-seater for 'really driving' ... then what you need is a sporty SUV - or maybe that's just me. Perhaps I'm a small market section, but it's nice that I'm being catered to!

Matt love your channel and what you do...... but you car guys drive me a little nuts when you compare different cars/vehicles to each other. You can’t compare this to a Golf R, they are two different vehicles , ones a Hatchback and the other is an SUV completely different in their purpose. It seems you thought this would feel the same as Golf R?? Matt you are brighter than that.. It’s the R version of the Tiguan it has its own pros & cons. And seems pretty good for Sporty SUV because that’s what it is......... it’s not a Golf R... Peace

How stupid it is to install chairs with integrated headrests into an SUV even if it is a sports version of an SUV. It's not just that people in the back can't clearly see what's happening in front, but those seats are less comfortable than those without integrated headrests, because you can't configure the exact position for a headrest like you want. Why do people even buy those things?

Uukausi sitten

Normal Tiguan is cheaper and more practical. so this R version is useless. This is the rare video where I agree with Matt's opinion about whether you should consider the car or go and buy it. yes it's just to consider, no more.

What is the point ? Having a family car with lots of space, a comfort cruiser on high ways, all wheel drive for every condition and when you are alone and the fun kicks your ass, you got the power and performance to do so. Yes, I can see the point. Driving in busy traffic with all the comfort, box ticked. Picking up the kids from school, box ticked. Just a long distance to get nice from A to B, box ticked. Having fun with power and performance, box ticked. Going to snow and wet roads, box ticked. Towing a trailer, box ticked. How many points do you need to see it ?
