The New Volkswagen Tiguan

Compared to the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V

Compare the Volkswagen Tiguan to the Competition in Fort Collins

The modern SUV offers many benefits to drivers in pursuit of adventure. Whether you embark on a solo journey around Westminster or need a carpool vehicle to transport your growing family, a new SUV makes an excellent choice. Three of the top-selling SUVs popular with Fort Collins drivers are the Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, and Toyota RAV4. Each of these ambitious SUVs offers benefits for your daily commute, but which new SUV will you choose? We welcome you to explore the options with the Ed Carroll Motor Company Inc. team at your leisure.

Differences in Design

The 2023 VW Tiguan offers seating for up to seven people in its spacious and modern interior. Its recent refresh adds even more amenities to the best-selling Volkswagen model, including the option of a 30-color ambient lighting system, touch controls on the steering wheel, and standard LED headlights. If you're looking for a new SUV with either two or three seating rows, the new Tiguan makes a great choice.

The new RAV4 and CR-V models offer a more compact size for your journeys around Denver. Toyota last redesigned the Toyota RAV4 for the 2019 model year, and it only offers two rows of seats. If you have your heart set on a three-row Toyota SUV, you'll have to go with the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Highlander, or Toyota Sequoia. Alternatively, Honda last redesigned the Honda CR-V for the 2020 model year, so the 2023 Honda CR-V doesn't offer as many updates. If you want to drive a three-row Honda SUV, you may want to opt for the new Honda Pilot or consider a three-row Volkswagen SUV, like the Tiguan.

Performance Overview of the New SUVs for Sale

The Tiguan comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to power your adventures around Thornton. With this setup, you can generate up to 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. These performance statistics are nearly identical to the new Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson. The Honda SUV features a turbocharged inline-four engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 179-pound feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Hyundai comes stock with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder non-turbo delivering 187 horsepower. In comparison, the new Toyota RAV4 equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine offers slightly higher horsepower than its peers but the trade-off is worse fuel economy. In addition, the turbocharged Volkswagen and Honda offer more torque than the RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson, so they'll be more comfortable towing a boat or trailer.

The three SUV models offer similar performance enhancements for your daily adventures. You'll find features like Hill Start Assist, an anti-lock braking system, tire pressure monitoring system, and stability control technology across the lineups.

Modern SUVs Give You Room to Grow

Many drivers choose SUVs for their cargo volume and towing capacity. Whether you buy or lease the new VW Tiguan or its counterparts from the Hyundai and Toyota SUV lineups, you'll have more room for your journeys than you'd find in a traditional sedan. The 2023 Tiguan boasts one major advantage over its rivals in that it offers three rows of seats for your travels around Boulder. You'll find that many of the interior measurements are nearly identical, with the Honda CR-V offering slightly more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room than its peers. However, the 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan offers 124 cubic feet of passenger volume, a significant increase over the 104 cubic feet of the Honda CR-V and the 105.9 cubic feet you'll find in the Toyota RAV4. The Tucson comes the closest, but at 106 cubic feet it still falls short of the Volkswagen SUV.
