Video review

VW also previewed a Tiguan GTE plug-in petrol-electric hybrid at the Frankfurt show the car was first revealed at. It uses the same basic powertrain as the recently introduced Passat GTE, mixing a 154bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine with an electric motor for a combined output of 215bhp. It has a range of 575 miles.

Together, they provide the most economical of the new Tiguan models with combined consumption of 149mpg and CO2 emissions of 42g/km - and it can also travel for more than 30 miles in pure electric mode.

Close rivals include the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Sorry, just a bit too

Sorry, just a bit too predictable for my liking. Personally would go for the SEAT Ateca over this just not to be one of the sheeple.
