TIGUAN VS. RAV4
Gone are the days when people only shop for an SUV solely for the cargo space. Nowadays, more and more people are turning to SUVs for the safety features, gas mileage, comfort, technology and off-road capabilities. SUVs like the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and 2019 Toyota RAV4 are some of the more popular choices, but here are 5 reasons the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is better than the 2019 Toyota Rav4.
If you’re considering the 2019 Toyota RAV4, price may be a selling point for you. The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has a lower starting MSRP for its base model. You can expect to save over $1,000 by choosing the new 2019 Tiguan over the RAV4. In fact, for the five trim levels offered by the Toyota RAV4, the Tiguan’s comparable trim levels all cost less.
A more enjoyable ride is easily achievable thanks to advanced tech features. The new 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has so much easy-to-use tech! A 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, USB port, a six-speaker sound system, rear-view camera and smartphone integration are all standard on the Tiguan. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink are available through the smartphone integration. The 2019 RAV 4 comes with a 7-inch touch screen, USB port, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay. Android Auto is not available.
The digital cockpit on the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is another highlight. It takes the traditional driver gauge and tech-ifies it by offering a customizable high-resolution digital display. The cockpit gives drivers information like navigation, fuel economy and call history, which is easily accessible by the touch of a button. The 2019 Tiguan’s digital cockpit is also able to store up to four different driver settings. This makes it easier to share your vehicle and not worry about your preferences being changed.
The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is longer and wider than its predecessor. It comes with enough space to fit seven passengers. The Tiguan is one of the only compact SUVs offering third-row seating. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 will only seat five passengers. Plus, the Tiguan also has more cargo space.
America’s best bumper-to-bumper limited transferable warranty is another reason why the 2019 VW Tiguan is better than the 2019 Toyota RAV4. The 6-year/72,000 mile on the Tiguan is double the 3-year/36,000 mile warranty offered on the RAV4.
5. Performance & Style
Two words: German Engineered. The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has been built with German precision which is great news for you; we can’t say that for the 2019 Toyota RAV4. Stefan Gies of Volkswagen Group explains the architecture of a Volkswagen as,“The geometry of how the wheels move in relationship to the body and how each suspension bushing is designed and tuned to perform in specific ways.”
The stylish new Tiguan looks good both inside and out. LED headlights with adaptive front-lining system, LED taillights and a panoramic sunroof are all available. Choose from the standard cloth upholstery or upgrade to the V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces. It’s made from a high-quality synthetic blend that mimics the feel of genuine leather. The digital cockpit and dashboard display are both notable in their style and convenience.
