VW Tiguan vs. Honda CR-V: Which is Right for You?

December 14th, 2021 by

Compact SUVs are incredibly popular, offering just the right balance of performance, space, off-road readiness, and storage space — but not all compact SUVs are created equal. Two highly sought after options are the VW Tiguan and the Honda CR-V. Both are well-regarded vehicles, but which is right for you? Let’s compare them and find out.


About the VW Tiguan

We’ll start with the VW Tiguan. Enjoying a lower cost of maintenance than 2021 Honda SUVs, the Tiguan is America’s bestselling Volkswagen, and increasingly one of the standard-setting models in the compact SUV category.

Here are a few things you want to know about the VW Tiguan:

  •   It stands out in its category for offering a truly smooth, quiet ride.
  •   It’s engineered with cutting-edge driver assistance tech, ensuring your ride is safe and comfortable.
  •   Both cabin space and cargo area are surprisingly roomy, especially when compared with other compact SUVs.
  •   The VW Tiguan is one of the only vehicles in this class with available third-row seating.
  •   Awarded the Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Award.



About the Honda CR-V

 The Honda CR-V emerges as one of the bestselling Tiguan’s chief contenders. Let’s see how Honda’s compact SUV stacks up:

  •   Like the Tiguan, it impresses with a spacious cabin and roomy interior, though its missing available third row seating results in less overall passenger volume.
  •   Enjoys a punchy engine but lacks the Tiguan’s comfortable suspension.
  •   Includes good standard safety features, but the absence of great standard infotainment features is felt.


While both compact SUVs have their strengths, the VW Tiguan edges out the competition with superior style, equipment, and practicality.
