The Volkswagen Tiguan is a mid-size SUV that combines no-nonsense German engineering, more space, robust horsepower and torque, and a unique design that results in an SUV ready for Canadian driving. Many of the Tiguan’s qualities exceed what the competition offers, including the Hyundai Tucson. Five models make up the standard Tiguan line, including the Trendline FWD, Trendline AWD, Comfortline, IQ Drive, and Highline.

The Tiguan’s exterior makes an instant impression when compared to the Hyundai Tucson. The Tiguan’s refined style raises its sophistication level. The wider wheelbase and generous passenger section also give it a sense of practicality and character over what the Tucson offers.

When power and torque matter, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan takes the pole

All five Tiguan models include a 2.0 four-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and a robust torque of 221 lb-ft at just 1,600 rpm. This adds up to 23 more horsepower than most Tucson models and 46 lb-ft more torque than the top Tucson, and at a much lower rpm! The Tiguan also has an eight-speed transmission compared to the Tucson’s six. This gives the Tiguan an advantage with acceleration and precision transmission performance.

The wider wheelbase of the Tiguan assists in stability and control, and that’s important when you are hauling precious cargo. All models, except for a Trendline trim, include Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive. Overall, the Tiguan is fun to drive.

The Tiguan makes improvements over its own predecessor when it comes to space and volume. The overall length increases by 10.7 inches, giving it more cargo space, a pass-through second row, and more leg and head room. This results in very competitive measurements against its rivals, including the Hyundai Tucson. The flexibility of the Tiguan’s interior continues with passenger capacity. It is available with 7-passenger seating, which exceeds the Tucson by two passengers.
