Oh, excuse me, I read it wrong.
Thought you were considering one, I blame my jetlag.
The Tiguan is a little better built in the interior compartment, less hard plastics, doorbins are nicer, but looks more boring.
But I liked the iDrive more, which is more convenient in use and the touch nav in the VW (you probably already knew that), seating position is nicer, steering wheel is nicer to hold (closer to the driver than in the Tiguan)(and I guess you already know those points), less bodyroll, wind noise is about on par, sidemirrors are a little bit bigger on the X1 (which I like), rear visability is a little bit better on the Tiguan, the twinscroll turbos are a little bit nicer than the TSI engines (my opinion).
So yeah, I think the X1 is better (ofcourse, we have one) but the Tiguan is good enough when you're not a sporty driver. And it's cheaper to run and in purchase.
