    tedward : They’ll probably shove an engine in the wrong place to save costs though, so no bets on how well it stacks up handling wise. This is mid-engined, RWD, and supposed to be roughly the same price as a Miata. In Germany, te Tiguan is priced between the CR-V and the RAV4, so if they can do that... Did you read the press release? 180hp diesel, 55 mpg (US)

    Not when I wrote that apparently. If it actually comes as a diesel or with the 2.0, I would very seriously consider buying one.

  • Inside Looking Out Regarding "narrow windows" - the trend is that windows will eventually be replaced by big OLED screens displaying some exotic place or may even other planet.
  • Robert I have had 4th gen 1996 model for many years and enjoy driving as much now as when I first purchased it - has 190 hp variant with just the right amount of power for most all driving situations!
