From front to back, there aren't many vehicles that are capable of giving you all the strength and space that you need like the Tiguan and Escape. For the price point, each model can offer competitive horsepower and torque output, and available all-wheel drive systems help you to take control of any terrain that you head out on. However, there are definite areas in which the Tiguan holds an upper hand. Not only has its longer wheelbase construction led to it providing greater cargo volume than the Escape, but a wealth of safety and driver assistance features on board ensure that you'll be kept safe and secure inside no matter what the road has to say. Some of these innovations include:

  • Front Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic
  • Lane Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Park Pilot
  • Area View
  • Many more!
