    That actually looks nice and I'm not VW's biggest fan.

    The proportions look off to me, especially the rear behind the doors. The rear looks like it got smashed with that tiny rear side window. Plus, it'll be expensive like the current one.

    GLE or X5, please.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Tiguan, not Touareg. The Touareg competes with the more expensive Germans. This will compete a lot with the mid-range Escape or Cherokee unless VW is planning on a cheaper version or a NA specific Tiguan.

    Ahhh, there's where I got crossed up. Darn "T" names lol. I thought this car looked small to begin with.

    If this is the Tiguan, then I like it a lot. This should do good in the marketplace. It looks pretty expensive.

    Yeah, it looks fantastic for the segment. We know it will be the most expensive vehicle in the class, though so it better look good.

    No doubt. But since it looks like that, it can certainly demand a price premium. It looks great for that class.

    Nice Mercedes-Benz wheels, too. Those only make it look even more expensive.

    A base Tiguan is under 25K, which isn't too much more than a base Escape or Cherokee, and that's with the 2.0T. So maybe a rightly packaged 1.8T FWD could base at a competitive 23-23.5K? Depends on how aggressive they want to be, I guess.

    If it was an alphanumeric you'd know which model competed with which...

    I think this looks pretty cute from what we can see so far. I have a friend who has one, she loves it. Her next car will almost certainly be this or a BMW/X1. This would be a very cute upgrade for her.

    I like it.

    They're generic 5 spokes, and they all suck.

    Cadillac also borrowed the Mercedes-Benz wheel design, too. It's fine, and it looks good enough on a Tiguan. I don't like the way they look on the Vsport, though. The CTS in general has pretty terrible wheels outside of like, two of the choices.

    Related: The center part of that wheel in your picture with the Cadillac logo looks terrible. It sticks out like a sore thumb.



    Much better with the new Cadillac logo. It's much cleaner looking.
