I leased my Tiguan after having 2 GTI's, so I was apprehensive about the drastic change of style. Now I step up to get in, and down to get out instead of the other way around. But my other concerns have slowly evaporated, the Tiguan is fast enough, handles more like a sports car than I would have believed, while holding the road is very smooth, quiet and effortless. It took a while to get used to ignoring every shift and rev which is one of the attractions of the GTI's, now it all happens in silence and It really is beyond effortless. With all the options, I have superb sound so I can feel every bass note and drum beat (I'm an old rhythm section guy) in crystal clear Fender sound, just like in a studio. I usually trade in about 2 years, but this may be a longer one, unless I need to have a CC Exec or Golf R before lease end. Choices, choices. No hurry, the Tiguan is like my favorite leather LazyBoy, don't want to get up but can't wait to go somewhere. Anywhere.
