2021 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2021 Toyota RAV4

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

If you are searching for a compact crossover loaded with personality, the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2021 Toyota RAV4 are both premium options that deserve your attention. One of the many standout qualities between these two popular models is in the area of passenger seating. The Tiguan has an optional third row, and this is not available with the RAV4. After you get to know their other exciting differences, which of these models will you select?


The 2021 Tiguan exterior is both refined and athletic. It has a graceful yet confident slope through the hood and a precision accent line down the side panels. While the profile has gentle curvature, the front and rear ends have horizontal accent lines for a lovely contrast. The 2021 Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, has substantial definition through the front end and smooth sides. The hood is long and flat, and it is capped by a molded grille stacked on a large air vent. Both features turn downward for a touch of aggression.


These crossovers have their own personality throughout the interior. However, with the exception of the third row in the Tiguan, these models have most of the same interior features in different trims. These include an automatic climate control system, smart device app connectivity, a rear camera, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, and more.


The Toyota RAV4 has a higher horsepower rating than the Tiguan, but the Tiguan has more torque, which allows it to accelerate faster from a complete stop. The RAV4’s base engine is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder, 203-horsepower engine. The primary engine for the Tiguan is a turbo inter-cooled I-4, 2.0-liter engine that generates 184 horsepower.
