Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 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). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda CR-V will do just as well as the Volkswagen Tiguan, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda CR-V 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 Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Tiguan.
