I think TS is refer to base model.

That's mean CX7 should be the 2.5L non turbo model. 2.3T is the more ex model.

2.5L non turbo FC at most u can get 8-9km/L

 

if cost is not a problem, get the tiguan.

 

P.S. provided if space is not a concern, CX7 is bigger, hence more spacious

Tiguan is using the proven Golf GTI engine [thumbsup][thumbsup][bounce1]

Friend of mine got the Tiguan new when COE was 5K. Within 5 months it went back to VW no less than 6 times for something amiss in the gearbox. Car is older now but she is already looking at something else.

 

Another friend driving the CX7. Its abt 2 years old. So far he hasn't gone back to agent except for the servicing.

 

Just feedback from 2 of my friends, I have no vested interests with VW or Mazda.

The CX7 is pretty much bullet proof. Having had one....and just sold it off for $82k...considering i bought it for $100k.....over 2 yrs, i lost $9k/yr. Excellent value. Current ones are pretty ex, though, but look for a good used one

 

CX7 gives you the bang for buck, ie the 2.3 turbo one. Spacious and loads of horsies to play with

4th Gear

CX-7 for me cos its more handsome and has better road presence plus its more spacious than the tiguan.

 

But tiguan boast better fuel economy n faster pickup plus higher top speed, plus better road handling.

 

Comfort wise both about the same unless u happen to be a 6 footer++ like me than choose the mazda would be a better choice.
