As compact SUVs become more and more in-demand, drivers of all kinds find themselves drawn to these popular and incredibly versatile vehicles. Whether you're adventuring off-road or running errands with the family, a well-equipped SUV like the VW Tiguan can make all the difference in terms of the enjoyment experienced while on the roads. But how does the Volkswagen Tiguan compare to the other competitor models of the segment? Below you'll find direct comparisons between the Tiguan and three of its toughest competitors and will be able to get a greater idea of what each model holds in store.

VW Tiguan vs Toyota RAV4

  • With a smaller body, the Tiguan more easily fits in with the segment, offering a balance of comfort and handling that the RAV4 cannot match.
  • With 39.1 inches of second row head room, the Tiguan offers a more spacious ride for your passengers, which means a more enjoyable ride for everyone.
  • The VW Tiguan offers greater maximum trailering capacity, 2200 pounds compared to the 1500 pounds offered by the RAV4.
  • The Tiguan is powered by a 200-horsepower engine, while the RAV4 offers a paltry 176-horsepower and cements the Tiguan as the more enjoyable SUV model.

VW Tiguan vs Ford Escape

  • When drivers crave a thrilling experience in an SUV, only the Tiguan will do, outperforming the Ford Escape with 200-horsepower compared to the 168-horsepower offered by the Escape. Clearly the Tiguan is the more fun to drive model.
  • The Tiguan offers a track width slightly greater than that of the Ford Escape, measuring at 61.8 inches front track width and 61.9 inches in rear track width. This enables a more confident grip of the road, and significantly reduces the risk of a rollover.
  • With its more powerful engine and better body, the Tiguan is a more capable SUV, offering a trailering capacity of up to 2200 pounds, while the notably weaker Escape can only handle 1500 pounds.
  • The Tiguan offers a comprehensive infotainment system with real buttons and intuitive control, while the Ford system is clunky, unresponsive, and generally harder to use, cementing the Tiguan as the superior experience.

VW Tiguan vs Nissan Rogue

  • The Nissan Rogue offers a larger body than the VW Tiguan, but the slight increase in size results in handling that feels more like a large boat, and fails to match that of the Tiguan.
  • With greater second row head room, 39 inches to be exact, the Volkswagen Tiguan ensures that your passengers will be more comfortable than in a new Rogue.
  • With a 200-horsepower engine at its core, the Tiguan delivers a more exciting drive than the 170-horsepower Rogue, complete with greater torque, acceleration, and ultimately, excitement.
  • The more powerful Tiguan is also capable of trailering more than the Nissan Rogue. With a max trailering capacity of 2200 pounds, the Tiguan easily outperforms the Rogue which can only trailer a maximum of 1000 pounds.
