Crossover of the year – Volkswagen Tiguan
The crossover is a relatively new category, but one that has gained massive popularity in the past few years. Most estimates say that more crossovers are sold than sedans, and we’re pretty sure we know why. Crossovers take your basic car platform and add some height, clearance, styling and interior volume.
In this category, the Tiguan went up against some very stiff competition, but came out on top for very clear reasons. Simply put: it’s better built, better equipped and better to drive at its price point than anything else on the market. Starting at under RM150,000, the Tiguan is more than just an all-rounder – it’s an overachiever.
