Small crossover SUVs have become a popular choice among today's families. For good reason, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has caught the attention of a lot of drivers. Not only does the Tiguan offer great crash protection, but it also gives provides a lot of space for passengers and cargo. Timeless European styling adds to the Tiguan's appeal. Meanwhile, VW's 70,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty enables you to ride with an extra peace of mind. Some people may also be looking at the 2019 Honda CR-V. Let's find out which one of these SUVs wins this head-to-head comparison.


A turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine comes standard throughout the Volkswagen Tiguan's lineup. It pushes out 184 horsepower and a significant 221 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, the Honda CR-V's standard four-cylinder engine produces 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Even the CR-V's available turbocharged engine only develops 179 pound-feet of torque. Because of the Tiguan's abundance of low-end torque, you can look forward to experiencing effortless acceleration. The Volkswagen Tiguan's available 4MOTION AWD system gives it yet another advantage over the Honda CR-V. It features an Off-Road Mode with hill descent control, which makes the Tiguan more skilled at tackling rugged terrain.


Both of these crossovers have a roomy design. However, only the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has the ability to seat up to seven passengers. Its available third-row seat is a must for big families. You'll also appreciate the Tiguan's standard 6.5-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To get these features on the 2019 Honda CR-V, you must step up to a more expensive trim. An available Digital Cockpit further separates the Tiguan from the CR-V. From high-resolution driving maps to fuel economy, this fully digital gauge cluster gives you easy access to a lot of information.


Your family will be thankful for the Tiguan's excellent impact protection. Like the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, the 2019 Honda CR-V received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. While the CR-V is a secure family vehicle, some exclusive safety technologies are available for the Tiguan. An Automatic Post-Collision Braking System comes standard on the new Tiguan. In the event of a crash, this safety feature slows the vehicle to prevent secondary impacts. You'll also benefit from the Tiguan's Intelligent Crash Response System, which automatically performs actions such as activating your hazard lights and turning off the fuel pump. An available surround-view parking camera gives you another reason to choose the new Tiguan.

While the 2019 Honda CR-V is a solid crossover, it loses this comparison to the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. Not only does the Tiguan boast a stronger standard engine and an available third-row seat, but it also provides some exclusive safety technologies.
