2017 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2017 Honda CR-V

Serving Streetsboro, Kent, and Akron

The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the more recent entries, having first appeared in 2007. The 2017 model year marks the Tiguan’s 10-year anniversary, and Volkswagen has streamlined the nameplate—eliminating some trims, adding others, and introducing more standard features—to further its quest for domination. Coincidentally, the CR-V enters 2017 with a brand-new design, ushering in its fifth production cycle. But ultimately, there are some areas that indicate that the Tiguan is steadily catching up.


The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo direct injection (TDI) inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which is praised for its peppy performance. It supplies 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft, thus ensuring that you rarely lag behind or have trouble going from one lane to the next. On the 2017 Honda CR-V, the most powerful engine available is a turbocharged I4 – just like the Tiguan’s TDI engine. However, the CR-V’s engine has less output, with 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.


The 2017 Honda CR-V benefits from its complete redesign, which includes a cabin that is much more upscale than previous iterations. However, it is rarely touted as a main attribute. That is not the case with the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, which is praised for the simplicity and handsomeness of its cabin design. Plus, the interior sports front-seat heating capability, leatherette upholstery, and brushed metal trim: features that rarely appear on the base-level models of other compact SUVs. The result is a vehicle that has an elevated luxury-oriented feel. It also helps that the cabin is amazingly quiet, even when driving on the highway at top speeds.


Another attribute that is singled out with the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is the intuitive infotainment components. While previous models came with a standard 5-inch touchscreen, the 2017 Tiguan gets a larger, 6.3-inch one that has updated graphics, is easier to respond to commands, presents straightforward menus, and is more aesthetically pleasing. Critics also note that the climate controls are easy to use. According to an Edmunds.com editor, the 2017 Tiguan has some of the best infotainment controls in the compact SUV segment, and the writer noted that owners can have two phones simultaneously link via the vehicle’s Bluetooth connectivity.
