Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Bronco Sport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Bronco Sport 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 Ford Bronco Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Bronco Sport is much wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Bronco Sport is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Bronco Sport and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Bronco Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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