This will be the Tiguan's Achilles Heel. The boot is about the same size as my Astra. When I took it to Perisher, I could just fit my 174cm skis diagonally with the back seat folded down and the front passenger's seat well forward. OK when the passenger was my son before his growth spurt. Would not have worked with an adult passenger. Take your longest skis with you to test fit before committing to a Tiguan. Seriously. Otherwise you might find you need roof racks and ski carriers.
