  • Performance: The standard turbocharger of the Volkswagen Tiguan's engine allows it to generate far more torque at 221 pound-feet to the 179 pound-feet of the CR-V's standard turbo performance.
  • Interior: The VW Tiguan comes available in two different sizes, with the base model a seven seat SUV and other trims seating five. The Honda CR-V only seats five with no seven-seat options available for larger carpools.
  • Safety: While the Honda CR-V has a lot of standard driver-assist features, the VW Tiguan provides extra protection on the highways outside Allendale, MI. The Tiguan features a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Assist. The CR-V has a similar feature, but it is only available on select trims.
  • Warranty: Trough Volkswagen's Bumper-to-Bumper coverage, you enjoy four years or 50,000 miles of coverage on non-powertrain components. The basic warranty from Honda covers the CR-V for three years or 36,000 miles; whichever comes first.

  • Power: While the Mazda CX-5 comes available with a turbocharged engine option, shoppers must pay extra for this option. The base-level Mazda CX-5 engine falls short in torque, generating 186 pound-feet to the VW Tiguan's 221 pound-feet.
  • Efficiency: The Tiguan even has a bit more long-term fuel economy to benefit commuters in Kentwood, MI. Its fuel tank can hold almost 16 gallons of fuel, versus the 14.8 gallon fuel capacity of the Mazda CX-5.
  • Interior: The Volkswagen Tiguan has a roomier interior, with a standard seven-seat capacity and lots of headroom. The Mazda CX-5 only comes available as a five-seat SUV.
  • Warranty: As with the CR-V, the basic warranty from Mazda covers the CX-5 SUV for 36 months or 36,00 miles versus the 48-month/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage from Volkswagen.

  • Power: The Tiguan's turbo performance generates some of the highest torque of its class, beating the Toyota RAV4's engine output of 184 pound-feet.
  • Exterior Features: The Volkswagen Tiguan comes standard with aluminum alloy wheels, which are not only stylish, but more lightweight than the standard steel wheels of the RAV4. Less overall weight gives Wyoming commuters better fuel economy in the long run.
  • Warranty: Not only does Toyota's basic warranty coverage fall short for the RAV4, its emergency roadside assistance coverage caps at two years. The VW Tiguan comes backed by VW's 36-month/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty and an additional three years/36,000 miles of roadside assistance.
  • Interior: As with the other competitors, the Toyota RAV4 only seats five with less passenger space overall. The Volkswagen Tiguan has a roomy interior to offer you and your passengers, whether you choose the five-seat or seven-seat SUV.
