Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
