Compact SUVs are now more popular than ever before. If you’re in the market for a new family vehicle, take a look at the redesigned 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. Its smooth styling, dynamic performance, and attractive features promise to leave you impressed. Improved legroom makes the new Tiguan even more appealing. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 remains one of the Tiguan’s closest competitors. Let’s see which crossover comes out on top in this head-to-head comparison.

Performance

All versions of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan come equipped with a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It’s tuned to develop a competitive 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission further enhances the Tiguan’s strong performance. By comparison, the Toyota RAV4’s non-turbocharged engine develops 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Whether you’re accelerating from a stop or merging onto a busy freeway, you’ll definitely appreciate the Tiguan’s extra punch under the hood. While the FWD Tiguan takes 7.7 seconds to hit 60 mph, the Toyota RAV4 recorded a 0-60 time of 9.0 seconds.

Interior and Features

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan now gives your family and friends more space to stretch out. While the Toyota RAV4 also provides a good amount of passenger room, only the Volkswagen Tiguan offers three-row seating. This is a key advantage for the drivers who have a big family. A larger cargo area gives the Tiguan yet another edge over the RAV4. Although both crossovers pack an impressive number of standard features, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan offers a more luxurious driving experience. Featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, VW’s Car-Net infotainment system received high marks from Edmunds for its responsiveness. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 doesn’t offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Furthermore, you can’t get the RAV4 with a fully digital gauge cluster. VW’s new Digital Cockpit display enables you to easy access important data, including driving directions and fuel economy stats.

Warranty

When purchasing a new vehicle, it’s always a good idea to check out the warranty coverage. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan‘s bumper-to-bumper warranty covers you for six-years/72,000 miles. On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 comes with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. You can also take advantage of Volkswagen’s 72,000-mile powertrain warranty, which overshadows Toyota’s 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. It’s clear that Tiguan buyers will be able to travel with an extra peace of mind.


Both of these small crossovers deserve some serious consideration. Nevertheless, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan's stronger performance and exclusive features help it to win this comparison.
