When you get a compact SUV, you'll want something that is not only comfortable and spacious, but also versatile. There's plenty of versatility to be found in the Tiguan, and much of it comes from the 40/20/40-split folding rear seats. You may not think 40/20/40-split rear seats are a big deal, but they really do a great job of helping you pack your belongings for a trip while maximizing passenger space and comfort compared to the typical 60/40-split. Plus, knowing your items are safely stowed in the rear cargo area can help you better enjoy the Tiguan's standard leatherette seats and heated front seats.
