2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2017 Honda CR-V

When it comes to delivering the reliability, performance, and amenities that Chicago drivers want, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan does it better than the 2017 Honda CR-V. To prove it, we created a comparison of the two crossover SUVs, examining the performance features, reliability ratings, and amenities that make the Volkswagen a top choice for both savvy LaGrange and Downers Grove drivers.


Should anything go wrong, Volkswagen offers better protection for those new owners with a 6-year/72,000-mile basic warranty that is fully double the Honda’s 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty. The VW Tiguan also rates better for quality and reliability.

The Volkswagen Tiguan offers drivers more power for their commute too. The 2.0 turbocharged 4-cylinder motor delivers 221 lb-ft of peak torque, which is 41 lb-ft more than the Honda’s 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and 42 lb-ft more than the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder.

The Volkswagen offers better control of that power as well with large 13.4-inch front and 11.8-inch rear rotors for superior stopping power. The Honda’s front rotors measure just 11.1-inches while the rear are only 10.2-inches, indicating less stopping power CR-V.
