The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and Jeep Cherokee offer both a sporty performance and spacious, family-friendly comfort. So, which of these crossover SUVs is more your style? Which is the safer ride? Our comparison guide delves into the important issues to help you decide which crossover is better suited to your daily drive.

Passenger Space and Comfort

Unlike the Jeep Cherokee, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan offers two different seating configurations. You can add third-row seating to the Tiguan, expanding total passenger capacity from five to seven. That makes it the better choice for big families who love to travel. The Tiguan is also home to spacious, supportive seating, so you and your loved ones can spend hours on the road without a hitch.

Both SUVs have comfort features in common, however. As you climb the trim levels, you’ll find increasing luxury with features like leather upholstery and heated seats.

Modern Technology

When it comes to staying connected on the fly, the 2019 Tiguan is our first choice. This modern crossover features standard smartphone integration features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This means you can use apps like Phone and Maps via the Tiguan’s central touchscreen display instead of looking down at your phone. Upper trim levels are even savvier, with upgrades like an 8-inch touchscreen and navigation to help you get around in style.

In the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, you’ll also find standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone capabilities. Although we think that Volkswagen’s infotainment interface is a bit more intuitive, Jeep’s Uconnect system gets the job done. As with the Tiguan, you’ll enjoy a longer list of tech features as you climb the trim levels, including items like extra USB ports and keyless entry with push-button start.

Passenger Safety

The 2019 Tiguan is also our pick for safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Tiguan its top score of “Good” in every single crash test, including roof strength and small overlap front tests. This sporty crossover also offers a long list of safety aids, courtesy of the Driver Assistance package. The package includes forward collision warning with automatic braking to help you stop short of accidents. The blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems help you avoid crashing into vehicles you might not be able to see.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee has yet to be rated by the IIHS, but it does deliver an impressive round of driver safety aids. You can add the Technology package to the Limited, Trailhawk and Overland trim levels. It includes traffic-adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking for safer travels.

Drop by Pohanka Volkswagen of Capitol Heights to test-drive the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. We think you’ll agree that this stylish, spacious crossover SUV is the best choice for you and your family. Its world-class safety features will put your mind at ease and its supportive seating will keep you comfy for hours on end.
