TIGUAN VS. CR-V
The 2018 Tiguan beats the CR-V and practically all its comparable challengers because it’s now a 7-passenger vehicle. By stretching its length a few more inches and reconfiguring its high quality interior, the Tiguan now boasts room for seven - something the Honda model will never be able to do. When comparing the base-level trims (Tiguan S VS. CR-V LX), the Tiguan surpasses the CR-V in horsepower and torque, meaning you get more power and acceleration with the Volkswagen. The mid-level trims (Tiguan SE VS. CR-V EX) are comparable and both nicely equipped with VW winning on upgraded upholstery while the Honda remains base-level cloth.
When it comes to technology, both are equipped with connected audio including Apple Car Play™ and Android Auto™. Both make hauling stuff easy with a hands-free power liftgate. The Tiguan SE comes with an 8” touchscreen while the CR-V EX has a 7” display.
And nothing compares to the all-new Volkswagen warranty. The People First Warranty is better and longer than any of the major brands. You’ll drive with peace of mind knowing you have a 6-year, 72,000 mile BUMPER-TO-BUMPER warranty supporting the quality craftsmanship of your new Volkswagen. So if you were thinking about Honda, do some research before you make the trip. Or stop by a local Volkswagen dealership and check out the competition first.
