Top-Rated Compact Crossover SUV Autobytel & AutoPacific Consumer Award
Top-Rated Compact Crossover SUV Winner: 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
Small crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles on the market right now, but the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan came out on top being named the top-rated compact crossover SUV in AutoPacific's 2012 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA). Tabulated by more than 75,000 customer surveys, these awards assess the owner satisfaction for new cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs in 26 vehicle segments to single out the 2012 Tiguan as the segment's best-rated compact crossover SUV. Since the VSA only looks at the ownership satisfaction of the vehicles, the 2012 VW Tiguan obviously provided the best overall owner experience by beating out eight other competitors to be named the highest-rated compact crossover SUV.
