TIGUAN VS. RAV4
If you’re considering the Toyota Rav4, you may want to think again. The all-new 2018 Tiguan is a 7-passenger sporty compact SUV compared to the 5-passenger Rav. Plus, depending on the trim level, you’ll get much more for your money with the new Tiguan. More power, more cargo space and, if you ask this writer, more style.
The Rav4 SE has 176hp @ 6000rpm while the comparable Tiguan SE boasts 184hp @ 4400 rpm. The Tiguan wins in torque as well - by a landslide. So if you want faster acceleration and more power, go with the Volkswagen.
According to Motor Trend’s Buyer’s Guide, the Rav4 is known for its choppy ride and subpar interior, while the new Tiguan is loaded with modern tech features. It’s also a Motor Trend SUV of the Year contender.
We haven’t even touched on Volkswagen’s all-new People First Warranty. It’s a transferable 6-year/72,000 mile BUMPER-TO-BUMPER warranty - which easily surpasses what Toyota has to offer.
So, before you default to the “same old, same old”, consider the all-new VW Tiguan and visit a dealership near you.
