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.
Volkswagen vehicles have a reputation for giving drivers more for their money, and the Tiguan is no exception. This crossover delivers standard amenities like:
Variable intermittent windshield wipers
Automatic on/off headlights
Heated exterior mirrors
And much more
Honda offers these same features on the CR-V, but only on upper trims for an additional cost. The Tiguan also brings shoppers optional features Honda drivers don’t have access to, such as:
Heated windshield washer nozzles
Heated steering wheel
Automatically adjusting side mirrors
