2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Ford Escape

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers value and functionality with modern styling and features, so it naturally has a spot at the top of your list of possibilities for your next crossover SUV purchase. Like the Tiguan, the Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV with comparable pricing. What are the differences between the Tiguan and the Escape that you need to know before making your purchase?


Visually, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan shows off a spirited, sophisticated personality. The Tiguan has thin, horizontal personality lines that give it a modern look from front to rear. With an upright cabin, LED headlights, and a stretched grille, the Tiguan has a character that is easy to fall in love with. In contrast, the 2020 Ford Escape has relatively smooth sides. The dramatic descent of the hood pushes the grille lower to the ground. The large headlights are mounted up closer to the front haunches.


You may love the modern, lean style of the Tiguan, which carries over inside its two-row cabin. The cabin’s appeal is defined by an angled center stack that gives the driver improved visibility of the display screen and the climate management system’s controls. Seating is available with numerous options for color, material, and stitching styles. A push-button ignition, smart device integration, a rotary knob for the drive mode selector, and other equipment are loaded into the Tiguan. The Ford Escape’s interior takes a different approach to its styling. The cloth or leather seats are combined with modular dashboard design. The center console has two sections, and the center stack has three components along with a mounted infotainment system screen.


Differences between the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Escape continue when you get behind the wheel. All Tiguan trims are outfitted with a 184-horsepower, turbocharged engine, auto transmission with a sport mode, all-wheel drive, and numerous driving models. Under the Ford Escape’s hood, you will discover a 1.5-liter EcoBoost powertrain, front-wheel drive, and auto transmission.
