2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Its Competition

2019 Volkswagen Tiguan
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Just about every car dealer in America has a direct rival for the VW Tiguan, so plan your shopping accordingly.

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 are the most popular choices with consumers, and for good reason.

The CR-V’s interior is exceptionally spacious with pockets and cubbies for everything life throws at its drivers and passengers.

A redesigned RAV4 arrives this year with mini-SUV styling and a thrifty hybrid option.

The new Subaru Forester may look like last year’s model, but it rides on a new platform and has an even more spacious interior.

We like the smooth-riding Chevy Equinox, but its active safety tech is a costly option.

And if you’re going off-road, the Jeep Cherokee is worth a look for its impressive capabilities.
