    Tiguan in snow?

    Thinking of buying a Tiguan SE "4motion" AWD. Lots of snow here in NH.
    Has anyone driven their Tiguan in the snow yet? How did it handle?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm waiting for the snow to fall up here in Canada. The AWD system in the Tiguan is the same system found in the new Passats , the Audi A3 and TT. Also, Volvo and Ford use the same manufacturer for the AWD drivetrain. It is one of the best in the market.

    The system is called Haldex: http://www.haldex.com/en/GLOBAL/Appl...ications1/AWD/

    If historic VW snow ability holds true to form you are golden. Unfortunately I live in Toronto now (orig from Montreal) and snow is not really common during the wintertime...

    Actually, I find it mediocre at best. But than again my previous car was a 'real' Jeep Commander

    Interesting, other than the fact that you probably had tires better suited to the snow and obviously more ground clearance, I believe the 4motion system is infinitely superior to the Jeep's. The non-locking diffs in the Jeep mean you can have two wheels spinning and "that's it" stuck for ever where the Tig can actually have 3 wheels lose traction and still channel power to the 4th to get you out of trouble.
