VW Tiguan vs CR-V: Performance

Leading the way in the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is a 2.0L turbocharged TSI engine. This engine, which works alongside a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, manufactures an incredible 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power and other proper equipment, you'll be able to tow up to 1,500 pounds of trailer weight in the VW Tiguan.

As for the 2018 Honda CR-V, you'll have a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine which does not come standardly turbocharged like the engine in the VW Tiguan. Even if you opt for the turbocharger, the CR-V still only manufactures 180 lb-ft of torque at most.

VW Tiguan vs CR-V: Interior Space

Inside the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll have seven spacious seats with 124 spacious cubic feet of passenger volume to share. You'll have two seats up front, three seats in the middle, and two seats in the third row.

With the VW Tiguan, you have many cargo configuration options to help you get the perfect passenger-to-cargo ratio. Fold one or both of the third-row seats down. You can also slide the second-row bench forward to keep five seats available while expanding your cargo area to 48.6 cubic feet. Or, fold any combination of these three second-row seats down to maximize your cargo capabilities.

The 2018 Honda CR-V, on the other hand, offers just five seats and 106 cubic feet of passenger seats. Additionally, the second row of seats doesn't slide forward, meaning you'll have to make do with its 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space or give up some seats.

VW Tiguan vs CR-V: Technology

The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan brings the heat when it comes to technology, starting with a large 8-inch touchscreen display to go with its advanced infotainment system. This system supports Bluetooth® and smartphone app integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for easy connectability.

This model also offers a handful of advanced active safety features including an Area View camera. With this available camera, you'll be able to get a 360-degree bird's-eye view of your vehicle's surroundings right on your infotainment screen.

Unfortunately, the 2018 Honda CR-V comes standardly equipped with a small 5-inch color LCD screen that can only be swapped out for a 7-inch touchscreen. Additionally, you'll completely miss out on a 360-degree camera.
