2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2019 Honda CR-V

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

If you want a spacious, tech-savvy and stylish SUV, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is a perfect choice. The latest Tiguan provides more interior space than its predecessors, but with more cargo capacity too, it doesn't sacrifice passenger room for a place to store luggage. This year, the Tiguan is offered with three rows of seats. It's user-friendly and modern infotainment system is simple to use, and it comes with all the latest amenities. The 2019 Honda CR-V is also a practical choice for a vehicle. However, critics say that if you're looking for the latest interior technology and a user-friendly layout, you won't find it here. When it comes to style, the Tiguan offers more custom design options, too.


On the outside, the 2019 Tiguan features an artful exterior designed with bold lines and chrome accents. Sculpted LED lights add to its commanding presence. They also take the vehicle's safety technology into new territory. Although it sounds like a small change, the front bumper has been re-designed this year to be bigger and bolder. The Tiguan comes standard with 19-inch wheels, but they can be upgraded to 20-inch wheels for a more impressive look. A total of eight exterior colors lets you give your 2019 Tiguan precisely the appearance that you want. With the Honda CR-V, little has changed in design since 2017. While the Tiguan gets LED lights in the front and rear, the CR-V only offers LED headlights. The base model of the CR-V also comes with smaller standard wheels, which start at 17 inches.

Interior Amenities

The 2019 Tiguan exudes glamour and elegance on the outside, and its interior follows suit. The Tiguan offers a 6.5-inch touchscreen with app connectivity in the first two trim levels. By the third trim level, an eight-inch touchscreen is standard. Even the base model comes with LED taillights, which is a feature most other automakers charge extra for. Three-row seating is available in the second trim level, as is a driver assist package that adds on more safety equipment. The SE, which is the third trim level, comes with leather seats and an available panoramic sunroof. An exclusive Volkswagen digital cockpit is standard on the SEL. This trim level also has standard cruise control. Custom badging distinguishes the SEL R-Line, and the SEL R-Line with 4Motion adds remote start. The highest trim level, which is the SEL Premium, features all-wheel drive, a higher-end Fender sound system, and LED headlights. With the CR-V, you'll get an infotainment screen with hands-free Bluetooth at the base level. Apple CarPlay is added at the second trim level. The only size available in the infotainment system is a seven-inch screen. The 2019 CR-V also lacks a third row of seating. Heated and leather seats are available, but only on the higher trims.


When it comes to performance, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan features an innovative all-wheel drive system that sends power to any wheel that needs it most. This ability to intuitively send traction to both the front and back wheels translates to ultimate traction and control for the driver. Furthermore, the Tiguan comes with multiple driving modes that offer a precise adjustment to your surrounding conditions. This includes snow mode and a custom off-road setting for when you want to take the Tiguan exploring. A turbocharged engine, even on the base model, and an eight-speed transmission are other notable features. In comparison, the CR-V only offers a turbocharged engine at the higher trim levels.

The 2019 Tiguan stands out in many categories, including performance, style, and interior amenities. But you'll have to try one for yourself to see all that it offers. Call, contact us online, or stop in today to take it (and the CR-V) for a test drive to see how they compare.
