I was already aware of the water crossing limits of the car, so I was not
about to cross this small river.
However my Wife challenged it, teasing me.
I crossed it first, then I let her to cross it back so I coud make the
I have to confess I got concerned as I underestimated the depth when
entering through the opposite margin.
But the Tiguan made it very well.

Volkswagen Tiguan review from Consumer Reports
The Volkswagen Tiguan small SUV doesn't come cheap, but it has athletic
handling and a high-quality interior. The SEL's 19" tires hurt ride and
noise. Learn more about the Volkswagen Tiguan and other SUVs on our

CHECK OUT THE CUTE-UTE SMACKDOWN:
We get it already — fuel prices suck. And while we pity the poor sod who
bought a new full-size SUV a few years ago and is now stuck with a fuel
bill that has doubled and a vehicle whose residual value makes manure
futures look appealing, everyone wants solutions. Sympathy won't heal a
So what's a utility-lovin' small family to do? Downsize. Full-size SUVs
provide unmatched capability but their thirst may make you reassess your
needs. Think compact utility vehicle. Think crossover.
This doesn't mean you have to downsize your expectations, though. The three
compact SUVs we've assembled here — the brand-new 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan
and the 2008 Honda CR-V and 2008 Toyota RAV4 — are based on car
platforms, a strategy that helps create an efficient utilization of
interior space in a relatively lightweight, fuel-efficient package. Simply
put, you can pack more stuff inside these compact SUVs than you might
And being car-based, these compact crossovers offer easier entry and exit
and better driving maneuverability than truck-based ones, something you
really appreciate when you're running errands around town. Of course,
car-based SUVs lack the rough-road capability of their bigger brethren, and
you can forget about serious towing. For everyday use, though, a compact
ute just makes more sense.
We tested a 2008 Honda CR-V AWD EX-L with navigation, a 2008 Toyota RAV4
4x4 Limited and a 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion. Each one represents a
different take on the cute-ute concept and carry distinct strengths and
weaknesses but the three turned out to be surprisingly well-matched.
Indeed, when the dust settled, we had a tie for 2nd place, and just 4.2
points separate them from the winner.
These are no penalty boxes either, as all three tested — the top trim
level available — are equipped with all-wheel drive, stability control,
leather and heated seats. Two of them have navigation systems with back-up
cameras and satellite radio.
