Rising to the Challenge

You’ll find an abundance of crossover SUVs on the market with very similar stats. Most are four-door vehicles with seating for five. And among the many 2020 crossover SUV models currently available, you’ll also experience a wide range of consumer-friendly and must-have technologies.

However, few crossover SUVs stand out from the crowd like the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan. Where most crossover SUV models default to front-wheel drive, the 2020 Tiguan offers all-wheel drive standard, while also offering more interior space and a more attractive array of driver-assist features than most of its key competitors.

The 2020 Tiguan comes with Volkswagen’s extensive warranty and maintenance perks. Enjoy a four-year, 50,000-mile warranty and two years of factory-covered maintenance included with your purchase.

Versus The 2020 Honda CR-V

You’ll find a large number of differences between the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2020 Honda CR-V.

Comparatively, these two vehicles have a similar set of standard features. Both are available with multiple trims and come with a starting MSRP around $25,000 for the introductory configuration. You’ll also find some similarities in exterior design, including attention-grabbing 17-inch alloy wheels, a shark-fin antenna for a lower profile, and roof rails for hitching up your luggage for long trips.

Depending on the trim, you can also enjoy a convenient power liftgate and a power sunroof from the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

However, the Tiguan has several key advantages over the CR-V, starting with the price. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan S starts at just $24,945 MSRP, compared to the equivalent CR-V LX model, which starts at $25,050 MSRP.

The 2020 Tiguan also has a more powerful engine 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine, delivering 221-lb feet of torque. The 2020 Honda CR-V LX offers a 1.5-liter VTEC ® turbo 4-cylinder engine, with just 179 lb-ft of torque. That difference in power means you can hitch and pull more weight with your 2020 Tiguan.

With a more powerful engine and a lower price, the Tiguan is a superior option over the Honda CR-V for drivers who want a more impressive engine for a lower price.

Versus The 2020 Toyota RAV4

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 starts at $25,950 MSRP for the introductory LE model, which makes it around $1,000 pricier than comparable 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Toyota attempts to justify this higher price with its interior features. Inside the 2020 RAV4, buyers will find a 7-inch touchscreen, integrated back-up camera, Android Auto TM , and Apple CarPlay® integration, and driver-assist features through Toyota DriveSense TM.

These types of features, and more, all come standard with the 2020 Tiguan S, with an expansion of standard and optional features at higher trims. With the Tiguan S, buyers can take full control of the Blind Spot Monitor and Front Assist, Rear Traffic Alert, Pedestrian Monitoring, App-Connect, 6.5-inch touchscreen, rear-view camera, and Volkswagen’s unique Multifunction Display for vehicle information.

Volkswagen includes these features standard at a far lower price than the comparable Toyota RAV4 model.

Versus The 2020 Nissan Rogue S

Size matters when it comes to crossover SUVs like the Tiguan and the Nissan Rogue. If you’re not willing to give up too much interior space, the Tiguan is a better buy than the Nissan Rogue.

The Volkswagen Tiguan provides over 123 inches of passenger volume space, versus just under 106 inches with the Nissan Rogue. That extra space in the Tiguan allows it to fit the 3rd row of seats to increase two additional passengers. You can sit up to seven with the 2020 Tiguan, versus just five with the 2020 Nissan Rogue.

The Volkswagen Tiguan is also vastly more customizable than the Nissan Rogue. You’ll find just three trims available for the Rogue, compared to six distinct configurations available for the 2020 Tiguan.

As with the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4, Nissan offers its comparable Rogue trims at a higher price for a similarly-equipped experience. The 2020 Nissan Rogue starts at $25,300 MSRP for the introductory S trim, compared to $24,945 MSRP for the Tiguan S.
