Comparison Review

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

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

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 Nissan Rogue 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. In this case, the Nissan Rogue will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

The Nissan Rogue has much lower torque than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Tiguan is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Rogue has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Nissan Rogue has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan Rogue has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

The basic warranty of the Nissan Rogue is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
