2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Its Competition

2020 Volkswagen Tiguan
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 2020 Tiguan is largely alone when it comes to offering a third row of seats in a footprint this small, but there’s a reason for that.

Among five-seaters, the Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester rate well for their spacious interiors and extensive safety-gear rosters.

The Honda CR-V offers a compelling turbo-4, though it’s starting to feel dated.

The Nissan Rogue is the segment’s elder, but it offers decent driver-assist tech and is often discounted.

The Chevy Equinox can be had with a powerful turbo-4 and has plenty of interior room.
