Whilst there are minor size differences, most people will still see a T-Toc, an Ateca (which this is with a different grille) or a SWB Tiguan as a lifted Golf, and when we look beside PR bull****, they are very close altogether (and under the metal identical anyway). They are all more or less same width, same height within a few cm and 4,2 - 4,3 - 4,4m in length, which results in probably one suitcase more in the trunk. Visually, only the T-Roc looks a bit fresher, joining the dual tone paint trend and a less boxy/upright appearance. None of them has a truly upright SUV driving position, all feel still more "lifted car"
Granted, the Tiguan gets no torsion beam rear axle on the base spec and has always 4 cylinders (for now at least), but even then, most dealer offers for the typical mid spec car are very close in price too; Ultimately, choice is mostly up for taste, but to argue with actual technical differences, I don't see them worthy enough to be the ultimate decision maker.
