Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen Taos offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, with comparable head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Taos offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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

Dimensions
The Volkswagen Taos is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. If you go with the Volkswagen Taos, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Performance
The Volkswagen Taos has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Volkswagen Taos 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 Volkswagen Taos and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Volkswagen Taos has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volkswagen Taos than that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
