Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Taos. The Volkswagen Taos offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Volkswagen Taos, 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). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Taos.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little wider than the Volkswagen Taos, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Taos.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Taos, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Taos are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Taos. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Taos.
