The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
What it lacks in personality, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan crossover SUV makes up for with its clean approach. The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice.
