2010 Volkswagen Tiguan

2010 Volkswagen Tiguan

The 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan ranks 5 out of 24 Affordable Compact SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 20 published reviews and test drives of the Volkswagen Tiguan, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
A blend of the words "tiger" and "iguana," the interestingly named Tiguan is a sporty and appealing entry within its class. Its German driving dynamics and upscale feel set it apart from other SUVs, but its steep base price, low fuel economy and below-average cargo space detract from its appeal.

With a starting price around $23,000, the Tiguan is one of the most expensive SUVs in its class. Plus, options and higher trims can add more than $10,000 onto that price. But test drivers say the Tiguan is well worth it because it’s one of the sportiest, most fun-to-drive small SUVs on the market. Typical of VW, it also comes with an especially high-quality interior for this segment.
"Tiguan's prices are higher than most compact sport-utility competitors," writes Consumer Guide. "Sporty-for-the-class road manners, a comfortable interior, and three years of no-cost scheduled maintenance offset the difference enough to make it worth a look."

But there’s another drawback besides the Tiguan’s steep price. In a class where many SUVs net 30 miles per gallon or more on the highway, the Tiguan’s fuel economy just can’t keep up. Its base rating, 19/26 city/highway, is one of the lowest in the class. The Tiguan also requires premium fuel, which is rare for this class and is sure to make those trips to the fuel pump even more painful.
f you’re willing to go without the Tiguan’s sporty driving dynamics, it’s easy to find a more affordable and fuel-efficient compact SUV. The Hyundai Tucson starts at about $4,200 less than the Tiguan and boasts one of the best fuel economy ratings in the class (22/30 mpg city/highway). It also comes with a class-leading powertrain warranty, but it doesn’t really improve on the Tiguan’s below-average cargo space.

If, however, a fun driving experience is really important to you, consider the Mazda CX-7. Though it’s technically not a compact SUV, it’s on the smaller side of the midsize class and still costs about $1,500 less than the Tiguan. On top of that, it has a higher 20/28 fuel economy rating and is one of the sportiest SUVs in its class. Since it’s a midsize, the CX-7 also has slightly more cargo space then the VW.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan

At nearly 180 inches long, the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta is almost a mid-size sedan now, so its proportions differ from past models. The Jetta doesn’t stand out from the pack, as it once did, for styling alone—it’s pleasant, inside and out, but by no means bold. To put it bluntly, the new Jetta looks too much like a largeToyota Corolla and not enough like its own crisply European ancestors.

Intellichoice agrees, calling it an “overgrown Toyota Corolla dressed in papaPassat's clothes.” They also remark, “Gone is the Teutonic styling, once elegant in its stark, purposeful appearance, replaced by a more staid, Japanese-influenced design.” This opinion is seconded by The Auto Channel, which feels that the Jetta is “nothing very special to look at, particularly in [its] soft gray color.” Edmunds cites the “dull exterior styling,” which “contradicts the nameplate’s youthful image.”

Not all reviewers are negative about the exterior, though. Automedia calls it “crisp and handsome, with its sculpted wedge profile, strong upper and lower character lines and contemporary taillamps,” while CNET says, “Gone are the boxy corners and the rectangular lights. VW has replaced them with more refined, curvaceous bodywork and lights that feature circles and ellipses.”

The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta might be generic outside, but inside it’s a well-drawn, well-fitted place. The roomy interior has a handsome, upscale look, with better materials in general than you'd find in an entry sedan, though the layout looks quite conservative, upright, and businesslike.
“Unfortunately, the interior doesn't live up to the expectations generated by the exterior styling,” laments CNET. But other reviewers like the look, with Edmunds referring to its “elegant trim,” and Automedia remarking, “The roomier new interior is attractively designed and beautifully assembled from premium materials throughout.”

2010 Volkswagen GOLF

2010 Volkswagen GOLF

The 2010 Volkswagen Golf returns with some styling changes and a name change. For the last few years, Volkswagen experimented with the old Rabbit nameplate in the United States, but it's abandoned that badge with the new model, reverting to Golf for both the three-door and five-door hatchbacks. The compact Golf comes in either body style, and with a choice of four-cylinder gas and diesel engines. Manual and automatic gearboxes are offered, along with a dual-clutch transmission in the TDI diesel. The new Golf starts from $17,490 for the two-door, with the four-door starting at $19,190, and the TDI diesel beginning at $21,990. Its primary competition? The Honda CivicKia Forte and Kia Soul,Mazda3, and Ford Focus.Performance enthusiasts will instead want to check out the 2010 Volkswagen GTI, which pairs the Golf's hatchback body style with more satisfying hardware and extroverted cues. reviews the 2010 VW GTI separately.

It's a bit difficult to tell the difference between this sixth-generation Golf and the car it replaces. There are plenty of small design variations, but the overall mechanical package and the general shape of the car remain unchanged. It is conservative and boxy-but not unappealing in its own German way. There's the traditional shape, a legacy of 30 years, but it's now crisper with some interesting creases on the hood, a new front end with a wider grille and halogen headlamps, and a small spoiler at the hatchback hinge. Diesel TDI Golf hatchbacks also get oval fog lamps and optional xenon headlamps. The overall look is a little wider, a little more balanced, and mostly evolutionary. The Golf's cabin bears more of a modern imprint, thanks to a new dash with even better textures and looks than the outgoing car.

2010 Volkswagen Eos

2010 Volkswagen Eos

The Volkswagen Eos is a four-seat, two-door convertible. Its retractable hardtop design combines the open-air experience of a traditional ragtop with the security and all-season comfort of a coupe's fixed roof. According to Greek mythology, Eos was the goddess of the sunrise, and it's an appropriate name for this smart-looking convertible. Though it is the spiritual successor to the Cabrio, the Volkswagen Eos eschews its predecessor's milquetoast image in favor of more upscale and sophisticated style, substance and capabilities.
While once the exclusive province of high-end luxury cars, the availability of a retractable hardtop has trickled down to convertible models that are more in line with what most drop-top shoppers can afford. With the ability to keep errant weather and noise out, retractable hardtops are all the rage, and VW has recognized the value of offering a four-seat retractable hardtop that starts under $30K. However, in typical German car fashion, the price rises quickly as options are added.

Volkswagen offers a single engine on the front-wheel-drive Eos: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque with nary a hint of turbo lag. It comes mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission. The optional transmission is the excellent six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG), which offers the clutchless ease of an automatic along with most of the advantages of a manual transmission.

The highlight of the Volkswagen Eos is its retractable hardtop. VW calls it the CSC (coupe-sunroof-convertible) and it employs a unique five-panel roof that transforms the coupe's hardtop into an open-air convertible in just 25 seconds. It includes a surprisingly large sunroof and heated glass rear window. Since a retractable hardtop is still a relative novelty, you are sure to attract attention when you hit the button that sets in motion the choreographed dance of moving windows, sunroof and roof panels. An available Trunk Lid Assistance program integrated with the parking sensors monitors up to 20 inches behind the car and prevents the roof from operating if any object or obstruction is detected.
Intended more as a boulevard cruiser than a sports car, the Volkswagen Eos excels when 

it comes to occupant comfort and amenities. Even the base Komfort comes loaded with a 12-way power driver seat, heated front seats, Bluetooth and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Lux model bumps the wheel size up to 17 inches (optional on the Komfort) and adds burled walnut wood interior trim, leather upholstery and a 12-way power front passenger seat. An optional touchscreen navigation system offers an integrated hard drive, a USB port and an SD card slot, while the available Dynaudio premium sound system on the Lux trim level includes 10 speakers and puts out 600 watts of power. The Lux trim can also be outfitted with bigger wheels and a sport suspension.

In road tests, our editors have cited the retractable roof, extroverted styling and high-quality cockpit furnishings as the VW Eos' key strengths. Downsides include mediocre handling and a tight backseat. As long as you don't expect the Eos to perform like a roadster, it should make for one of the most satisfying convertible experiences at this price point.

2010 Volkswagen Polo

2010 Volkswagen Polo

The Golf is an exceptional C-segment medium sized three and five door hatchback, it drives fantastically well and it is a classy and desirable product. But it is expensive so the new Polo, larger, better looking, better performance and of better quality than its predecessor, is just right to capture ‘down-sizers’ and ‘down-pricers’ in the recession hit new car market.
Five door Polo models go on sale from 16 October and three door versions will follow in December 2009. Five door prices show a 2-3% increase over the outgoing Polo due to the low value of the Pound against the Euro. Prices range from £10,035 to £14,910 and expect three door versions to be around £600 less for like-for-like specification.
In a full year the Polo should attract 37,000 UK buyers making it VW’s second best selling range behind the Golf which accounts for 65,000 sales. But I can see some previous Golf owners wishing to save on money, but not on image, taking a serious look at the new Polo.
It looks just like a Golf but it is just 229mm shorter in length (around 9-inches) and with a width of 1,682mm is just 104mm (around 4-inches) less. The Polo also has a good sized boot with 280-litres of space with the rear row of seats in use and 952-litres with the rear seats folded.
There is more storage space under the strong load floor and even room for a spare wheel not an inflation kit - a rarity these days.

There are four levels of trim and equipment, S, Moda (designed for the younger buyers with flashy wheels and dark glass but no air-con) the best selling SE and the SEL which will attract down-sizing buyers from much more expensive cars.
The current engine line-up has three petrol and two diesel Euro V units with more to come including a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder TDI diesel BlueMotion model which will return 85mpg with a CO2 figure of just 87g/km. However for now we have 1.2-litre three-cylinder 60 and 70PS, 1.4-litre, four-cylinder 85PS petrol, and 1.6-litre four-cylinder TDI 75 and 85PS units.
A heftily priced £1,200 DSG automatic seven-speed gearbox is available for the 1.4-litre petrol engine. All other models have five-speed manual transmissions. The most popular engine by far, over 50% will be the 1.2-litre unit and of those two the range starter 60PS engine will account for most sales.
Finally on figures 60% of new Polo buyers are likely to be retail customers and also 60% of all Polo sales will be for five-door versions. The single best selling model in the UK Volkswagen expects to be the SE 1.2-litre 60PS which carries a price of £11,385 , a road tax bill of £120 but with an insurance group rating of just 2E.

A 1.4-litre SE Golf 5-Door (nearest equivalent) will cost £16,520 with a £125 road tax bill and insurance rated as 7E.
So this shrunken Golf in the form of a Polo makes a lot of financial and visual sense.
The two main competitors for the new Polo will be the Vauxhall Corsa which the Polo beats hands-down for driving refinement, room and quality. It almost beats the market leading new Fiesta, especially for rear seat space, the quality of the interior and the future residual values.
But the Fiesta outscores the Polo in the overall driving thrills and verve departments as the Polo is safe and secure but not that exciting to drive.
I sampled various engines from the new Polo range and the 1.2-litre 70PS unit seemed to me the best option. The three cylinder unit is responsive and lively and the combined cycle 51.4mpg figure should be achievable, VW’s are normally good at actually producing in real-life their fuel economy figures.
However it is the 60PS unit of the same engine that will be the best selling model and this unit needs to be pushed just that bit harder to achieve the same performance. The 10PS less power becomes obvious on hills and the 0-62 acceleration figure of 16.1 seconds is a full two seconds slower than the 70PS unit and it shows.
The top speed is a sluggish 98mph, 5mph slower than its larger counterpart. The fuel economy is claimed to be the same but in real-life because it is worked harder I suspect it will return less than the more powerful unit. The 60PS engine is also noisier than the 70PS engine during acceleration.
As for roadholding, stability and handling, the ride was comfortable and the suspension compliant and it handled our poor road surfaces well enough.
The interior is relatively roomy and the new Polo feels much more grown-up that the previous versions. It is still a smallish car but with the ‘feel’ of a much bigger car and with the build quality and layout to match.

 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, petrol, 60PS, 80lb ft (108Nm) from 3,000rpm, 5-speed manual gearbox
 98mph, 0-62mph 16.1 seconds, 51.4mpg, CO2 128g/km VED Band D £120
 280-952 litres
 Family styling of the new Golf, slightly larger and more interior space than previous Polo models, comfortable ride, much improved equipment and quality, frugal with fuel, low insurance costs
: Stressed sounding 60PS engine when pushed so go for the much better 70PS unit

2010 Honda Pilot

2010 Honda Pilot

The 2010 Honda Pilot ranks 12 out of 23 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 31 published reviews and test drives of the Honda Pilot, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

Though it received a major redesign in 2009, the Honda Pilot still can't compete with top rivals. Its strengths are a spacious third-row seat, lots of storage cubbies and a powerful engine, but it misses the mark when it comes to interior quality and braking performance.

With a starting price of nearly $28,000, the eight-passenger Honda Pilot isn’t the most expensive or the most affordable SUV in its class. Likewise, its base fuel economy rating (17/23 mpg city/highway) is about average. So what differentiates the Pilot from the large pack of midsize SUVs? Not much, according to test drivers.

 “Honda's sterling reputation will likely clinch plenty of Pilot sales, but we think discerning consumers who test-drive the competition will find that the Pilot is a surprisingly lackluster effort from the illustrious Japanese.

Along with its spacious third row and excellent safety scores, the Pilot boasts a powerful V6 engine and impressive towing capacity. It comes with seating for eight, which is impressive since most three-row SUVs seat only seven. However, those strengths may not be enough to make up for the Pilot’s weaknesses. These include longer-than-average braking distances, poor-quality interior materials and confusing dashboard controls.

The Pilot sees no major changes for 2010. The 2011 model is also expected to remain unchanged, although it will add Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation System as an option for the EX-L model (a feature previously exclusive to the Touring model).

The Pilot comes in several trims, the base LX, EX, EX-L and luxurious Touring. Though front-wheel drive is standard, it's available in all-wheel drive. Be sure to check for current Honda deals that may be available on a new Pilot.
