2022 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Its Competition

2022 Volkswagen Tiguan
Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 are mega-popular crossovers that are efficient and spacious—and that’s before we’ve considered hybrid versions of both.

The Ford Escape offers a hybrid powertrain as well, but it’s more car-like in its approach.

The Hyundai Tucson got a redesign for 2022, adding a hybrid version and lots of new technology.

The Subaru Forester is a past Best Car To Buy winner, and we still like its practicality and capability.
