In this increasingly bizarre year, the month of May once again threw up many surprises for most of us. For me, the big positive was the opening up of the movement curbs enough that I could attend office every day of the week, and while in normal times I might have grumbled about this, in our increasingly strange world, it really is a blessing.
Other than my daily commute – which is currently fantastic because there’s so little traffic on the roads – I also got to do a highway trip this month. With some important legal work pending in my hometown, it meant getting permission from the relevant authorities and then a 2-day trip. And being on the road, after a gap of nearly 3 months, and with an empty highway to boot, the Tiguan was right on song. It’s rare to get empty highways to yourself in our country, but this trip once again showed me why the famed high-speed handling of VW’s cars is valued so much.
We were doing three-digit speeds throughout the journey, and the Tiguan, was, to put it simply, fantastic.
