Eric's Autos: 2021 VW Tiguan
Getting three rows of seats without getting something big -- or pricey -- isn't easy.
Because there aren't many.
In fact, there's just one right now: the 2021 VW Tiguan.
The other two compact-sized crossovers previously available with three rows of seats no longer are. Dodge dropped the Journey, and Mitsubishi isn't currently selling the seven-passenger Outlander (but the five-passenger Sport is still available).
The only other small crossover that seats seven is the Kia Sorento. But its starting price is much higher -- $29,300 versus $25,245 to start for the Tiggy.
Which pretty much leaves this three-row VW in a class by itself.
For the moment ...
What It Is
The Tiguan is one of just two compact-sized, three-row crossover SUVs remaining on the market now that Dodge has dropped the Journey and the regular Mitsubishi Outlander is off the market ... momentarily.
It will be returning for 2022, though.
