We are going to jump right in with the differences. For one, a load bearing exterior rack is standard on the Tiguan but only optional on the CX5, meaning that it will come at an additional cost. As you can see in the chart above, these vehicle trim levels are similar in base price and in a comparably equipped price. So, most features will be similar, but here and there you may need to pay extra for a feature. The biggest difference is the seating of these two vehicles. The Cx5 seats 5 while the Tiguan seats 7. This may make a difference if you plan to carpool or have a large family. Furthermore, because of the seating difference, the Tiguan ends up having much more passenger volume at 123.9 cubic feet instead of the 103.6 cubic feet for the CX5.

The Tiguan also has a longer warranty at 72 months or 72k miles as opposed to the CX5 which has a 36 month or 36k mile warranty. Overall, the Tiguan has a better warranty for basic, powertrain, and anti-corrosion coverage. All new Volkswagen models are covered with long warranties, because Volkswagen trusts that their vehicles can outlast others. We are proud to sell this dependable brand, and we hope to see you here at New Century Volkswagen soon.
