You heard a lot about small crossovers and SUVs. You heard they have been very popular lately. We have one, too. We call it the Volkswagen Tiguan. It looks like a Volkswagen, but it does a lot more. It takes a family of five anywhere you point it. It is efficient, spacious and a lot of fun to drive. Add our 4Motion all-wheel drive system and you will have the confidence to go anywhere.
The Tiguan is right in the thick of the fastest growing segment in the business. We think it’s great, but not everyone agrees. We decided to make a comparison to see how the Tiguan stacks up with the three best-selling compact crossovers in America – the Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V.
|Volkswagen Tiguan||Toyota RAV4||Ford Escape||Honda CR-V|
|2.0Liter Turbocharged I-4 – 200HP||2.5Liter I-4 – 176HP||2.5Liter I-4 – 168HP||2.4Liter I-4 - 185HP|
Combined Fuel Economy
|23 MPG||26 MPG||25 MPG||29 MPG|
|3404 Lbs.||3435 lbs.||3598 lbs.||3358 lbs.|
Cargo Space (Second Row Seat Up)
|23.8 cu. Ft.||38.4 cu. Ft.||34.3 cu. Ft.||35.2 cu. Ft.|
Comparisons may seem unfair sometimes. We would argue that these numbers only scratch the surface to what the Tiguan really is. The key to a Volkswagen is for one to be fun to drive. That is what makes the Tiguan stand out in this crowd 0- the ability to put a smile on your face. Plus, peace of mind with available Car-Net connected services.
We know choosing the right compact crossover is tough. However, we think you’ll love the Tiguan. Stop on by and see for yourself why it is the right family vehicle for you.
