Compare the New Volkswagen Tiguan to the SUV Competition


At Gensinger Motors, Inc., we're big fans of our collection of high-quality, brand-new Volkswagen models, and we know we can go on and on about the virtues and benefits of our vehicles, such as the Volkswagen Tiguan SUV. But we also know that sometimes you want proof that our vehicles are the best, which is why we've put together this comprehensive comparison for you. We hope this side-by-side look at the Tiguan next to several competing models helps you the next time you're in the market for a versatile, fun-to-drive, SUV.

The Volkswagen Tiguan vs. the Audi Q5

  • Seating. The Volkswagen Tiguan has options. Drivers can choose to have their SUV with two rows of seating for five people or expand on that with an available third row. But the Audi Q5 lacks this option, and only comes with a five-passenger capacity.
  • All-Wheel Drive. Volkswagen understands that not every SUV shopper wants, or needs, all-wheel drive on their vehicle, and they deliver options with the Volkswagen Tiguan. Across the board and on every trim, drivers get to pick whether they want their SUV with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, doesn't allow you to choose, and every model gets all-wheel drive, whether you want it or not.
  • Budget. Looking to get behind the wheel of an impressively engineered and fun-to-drive SUV, and still have money left over for gas and groceries? The Volkswagen Tiguan starts at around $24,000 and goes up from there. But, the Audi Q5 starts at around $43,000, which means you can get a similarly sized and similarly equipped SUV for a payment plan that's friendlier to your budget with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Volkswagen Tiguan vs. the Honda CR-V

  • Passenger Capacity. While families who need extra space can get it with the Tiguan, thanks to an optional third row that increases capacity to seven, the Honda CR-V is strictly a two-row model that seats just five people.
  • Power. The Volkswagen Tiguan offers power and performance that feels more responsive and exciting than the Honda CR-V, thanks to its standard turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. This delivers 184 horsepower with 221 pound-feet of torque. The Honda CR-V, on the other hand, is powered by a 1.5-liter engine that puts out 190 horsepower and just 179 pound-feet of torque.
  • Size and Space. While both SUVs have similar dimensions, the Volkswagen measures taller and wider than the Honda, with a wider wheelbase. This translates to more interior space for you and your passengers, especially when it comes to front seat headroom, where the Tiguan has more than 1.5 inches of greater headroom than the CR-V.

The Volkswagen Tiguan vs. the Ford Escape

  • Performance. The Volkswagen Tiguan delivers more standard power than the Ford Escape. While the Tiguan starts with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Escape starts drivers off with a less-powerful, three-cylinder engine. To get more power from your Ford Escape, you'll have to move up and spend more money on an upper trim.
  • Seating Capacity. As with the other comparisons on this page, the Ford Escape can't compete with the Volkswagen Tiguan when it comes to versatility and capacity. Strictly a five-passenger model, drivers have to move up and spend more money on a larger Ford model to get a third row. But, drivers who choose the Tiguan have the option of ordering a third row with a seven-passenger capacity.
  • Warranty. Volkswagen vehicles are well-made and constructed with high-quality materials, which means we don't expect anything to go wrong while you're driving it. But, life happens, and if something does break, isn't it nice to know Volkswagen has your back? The Tiguan has a basic warranty that covers for you for longer than the Ford Escape, offering 4 years or 50,000 miles of coverage, compared to 3 years or 36,000 miles with the Escape.

The Volkswagen Tiguan vs. the INFINITI QX50

  • Affordability. The Volkswagen Tiguan is easier on your budget than the INFINITI QX50. While you can get behind the wheel of a Tiguan SUV for around $24,000, the entry-level INIFINITI model typically goes for around $40,000.
  • Interior Space. The Volkswagen Tiguan is also more comfortable for you and your passengers than the QX50. It offers more headroom and legroom, with extra space to stretch your legs in the front seat, and more room for taller passengers in the rear.
  • Seating. Once again, the Tiguan delivers more space and better options in terms of seating. Sometimes, you need an extra row of seats for the family, and the Tiguan has them. The Volkswagen has a maximum capacity of seven when you opt for the third row, while the QX50 seats just five in two rows.
