Small crossovers that come with three rows of seats are on the rise in popularity because they offer excellent utility while remaining as efficient as possible. The Volkswagen Tiguan has been on the market for a while, but thanks to its makeover for 2018 (which included a 10-inch growth spurt), it is now a member of this growing segment and has several new rivals – one of which is the 2018 Dodge Journey. To help you see what makes the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan the better buy, we have created a special comparison.
