In order to see how the new Tiguan stacks up against the competition, we've compared it to another popular compact crossover, the 2018 Honda CR-V. Find out which is right for you in our 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Honda CR-V comparison below.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Offers Versatile Hauling

It's hard to compete with the Honda CR-V, but the new Volkswagen Tiguan has enough space, power, and features to give it a run for its money and come out on top! To start, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is proud to offer a third row for 7-passenger seating. Whether drivers want to utilize the extra capacity or just have it handy in case of larger outings, having available seats for seven makes a big difference in the capability of the vehicle. When only five seats are needed, the 2018 Tiguan third-row seat can fold flat revealing a large amount of cargo space that is comparable to what is found on the 2018 Honda CR-V. When you crave versatility, the new Tiguan can give you what you want. 

Both the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2018 Honda CR-V are offered in four trim levels and have a wide array of features and options. Another large and noticeable difference between the drivetrains of the Tiguan and the CR-V is that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan gets 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with Drive Selector and four drive modes (On-Road, Off-Road, Snow, and Off-Road Custom) as an optional feature across all four trim levels, while the 2018 CR-V only offers their regular AWD system as an option on their four trims. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan also outdoes the 2018 Honda CR-V in standard safety features with its Intelligent Crash Response System included with all trims, making it another great choice for families.
