2021 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The Volkswagen Tiguan and the Nissan Rogue are compact crossover SUVs that were both introduced around the same time more than a decade ago. With a comparable starting price and with recent improvements, the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2021 Nissan Rogue both deserve a closer look before you settle on a specific model for your upcoming purchase.


The Tiguan exudes confidence and sophistication from front to rear, and it incorporates exciting touches throughout. Linear elements define its personality through the side accents, the grille, and the lower-front fascia. The grille is impressively integrated with the LED headlights, and a ribbon of jewel-like lights underscores these lights. On the other hand, the Rogue’s exterior shows only molded definition on the hood and throughout the sides. The front end has a chunky appearance with various angles displayed through the segmented headlights, the V-shaped grille, and the lower-front air vent.


These two crossovers share several interior traits. These include a digital cockpit display, a digital infotainment system screen, auto climate control, smart device integration, and push-button ignition. The Tiguan also has remote accessibility via a smart device app, Bluetooth technology, heated seats, and more. Inside the Rogue, the geometric design continues with layered elements across the center stack and a cube-like topper on the gear selector knob.


Under the hood of the Tiguan, you will find a 184-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine. This is tied to an eight-speed auto transmission with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and several driving modes. In all of the 2021 Rogue trim levels, a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine produces 181 horsepower. This comes with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.
