Car makers have recognised that buyers don’t want thirsty off roaders and now there are many small more efficient options.
With the UK shivering in the grip of the worst winter for over thirty years sales of 4x4 vehicles are on the up as car buyers opt for all wheel instead of no wheel drive.
There are many options and the best buy in this class could possibly be the Volkswagen Tiguan. It is a smart car to look at and off road ability is reasonable especially if you opt for the off road pack. The Volkswagen Tiguan has several engine options including 1.4 and 2.0 petrol and a 2.0 diesel. The diesel option averages approximately 38.2 mpg.
Volkswagen has gone further than most manufacturers in giving its compact Volkswagen Tiguan 4x4 real pedigree when it comes to off-road driving. With 4x4 mechanicals and a package of electronic driver aids, the Volkswagen Tiguan makes a valiant attempt at throwing off the soft-roader stereotypes and differentiating itself from the growing glut of similar vehicles that ply the market place.
