Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Tiguan. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler 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. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Jeep Wrangler seats a lot fewer people than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
