Why Tiguan?



The Volkswagen Tiguan made its debut in 2007 as a compact SUV. That same year, the Nissan Rogue came onto the scene too. Since then, the two vehicles have been in direct competition. Let’s see which makes for the better SUV for your South Florida drives.

The Volkswagen Tiguan recently underwent a massive redesign; the 2018 & 2019 models are technically not even the same vehicle as prior years. It’s longer and wider with 3rd row seating and more cargo space. Volkswagen also added two new trim level, so now drivers have more options and ability to customize exactly what they want and need in their crossover SUV. VW also upped their game with new technology. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are standard features. There’s also a huge panoramic sunroof available. Also new for 2019 was a price reduction! That means you can now get more for less.

The 2019 VW Tiguan’s refined ride makes it a favorite for South Florida drivers. It’s both quiet and controlled, making highway driving smooth and comfortable. It’s peppy turbo engine also packs a punch. It comes standard with a 184-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. South Florida drivers who want a vehicle with amazing tech features will enjoy the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan’s:

  • 6.5-inch touch screen
  • Available 12.3-inch digital display
  • Available HD Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Android Auto
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Six speaker sound system

Unlike the quiet ride the Tiguan provides, the 2019 Nissan Rogue is known for its noisy powertrain and an engine that struggles at high speeds, according to UsNews.com[1]. The 2019 Rogue’s performance also leaves more to be desired. It’s only engine is a 170-horsepower four-cylinder. A complaint from Autotrader was that the Rogue should be faster. The 2019 Rogue has many of the same the features as the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, including:

  • 7-inch touch screen
  • Android Auto
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Bluetooth
  • Four speaker sound system

But you’d giving up the style and German-engineered performance of a Volkswagen. And, you’d likely be paying even more. Plus, the optional 3rd row in the Rogue costs more and provides less space. There’s more passenger and cargo volume in the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Plus, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty - that’s 6 years or 72,000 miles of transferable bumper-to-bumper coverage. The 2019 Nissan Rogue only comes with 3 years or 36,000 miles of basic coverage.
