Compare the Volkswagen Tiguan to the Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson

Searching for that perfect SUV to fit all of your family vacations? Look no further than the new Volkswagen Tiguan, a seven-seat-capable SUV that accommodates your needs while you're on the go. From exciting performance capability to convenient technology setup, you'll love every minute behind the wheel of the new Tiguan.

However, it takes more than spacious passenger areas and numerous conveniences to stand out in a crowded field. Options like the Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson are no slouches, offering a similar experience to the one you'll find in the Tiguan. Down below, you'll find a head-to-head matchup of the Tiguan with its rivals, where you'll see why the Volkswagen SUV is the better choice. Let us know if we can help you clarify any comparisons, or visit us today to see what the Tiguan can do once you climb into the driver's seat.

Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Toyota Rav4

Affordability doesn't mean much without offering features other lineups can't match. Luckily, the Tiguan can back up its more affordable package with configurations you won't find in the Toyota RAV4 lineup. In the RAV4, you'll get seating for up to five passengers, with ample seating space for everyone to comfortably stretch out. However, you're only able to seat five, no matter which trim configuration you choose. With the Tiguan lineup, you aren't limited. The Volkswagen SUV offers an optional third row, allowing you to seat up to seven passengers with ease. There's no third-row option in the RAV4. You'll also need to pay about $600 more for the RAV4, making the Tiguan a better deal overall!

Engine performance isn't everything with new SUVs, but it can't hurt to have an engine that provides all the muscle you'll need. The Volkswagen Tiguan comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that pumps out 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. In the RAV4, you'll have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet. While the RAV4 does manage more horsepower, you'll get less power directed to the wheels than you do with the Tiguan. The Volkswagen SUV accelerates quicker than the RAV4, allowing you to get going faster!

Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Hyundai Tucson

Keeping your family safe and secure as you travel from one destination to the next is a feature any driver would want. The Volkswagen Tiguan comes standard with helpful driver assistance features that ensure your peace of mind stays intact anywhere you go. You'll benefit from standard automated emergency braking with forward collision warning and a Blind Spot Monitor and Front Assist feature that lets you know when a vehicle approaches your blind spot. While the Hyundai Tucson comes with many standard safety features, a blind-spot system isn't one of them - you'll need to pay extra for that driver-assist option.

The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the few options in its segment to offer a third-row of seats. With seating space for up to seven passengers, you can configure your interior to meet the demands of your family when you hit the road for your next getaway. With features like the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit and heated front seats, both standard starting with the base model, you'll get the most out of your experience no matter how many passengers you have with you. The Tucson seats five passengers comfortably, but that's all you'll have room for - there is no optional third row. And the Hyundai SUV doesn't include similar features standard, meaning you'll need to pay more to unlock them.
