Serving Streetsboro, Kent, and Akron, OH
Good compact crossover SUVs provide plenty of features, versatility and spaciousness. Two top models are the all-new 2018 VW Tiguan and the 2018 Honda CR-V. These two models offer easy handling, strong performance and advanced features. We’re confident a test-drive will convince you that the Tiguan has more space, better handling, and superior value.
The 2018 VW Tiguan comes with a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine with 184 horsepower, 221 lb-ft of torque and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2018 Honda CR-V engine (in all models but the base unit) is a 2.4-liter I-4 with 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, mated to an automatic CVT. Both models are available in FWD and AWD versions. The 4Motion Tiguan includes a mechanical center differential and electronic differential locks. This system distributes power where needed, side to side and front to back. Tiguan also packs eight selectable driver modes.
The Tiguan is available with a third row to seat seven, but the CR-V is limited to five. The VW has a longer wheelbase (109.8 vs 104.7 inches) and is longer (185.1 vs 180.6 inches). The top version of the Tiguan has 20-inch wheels, two inches larger than those on the top CR-V model. The VW cabin has more front head room (39.6 vs 37.8 inches), rear shoulder room (55.8 vs 55.6 inches) and rear head room (38.9 vs 38.3 inches).
When considering long-term cost of ownership, it’s good to know that Tiguan comes with a 6-year/72,000-mile basic and powertrain warranty, much better than CR-V’s basic warranty of 3 years/36,000 miles. The Honda’s powertrain is covered for 5 years/60,000 miles. The cherry on the sundae is VW’s corrosion warranty of 7 years/100,000 miles, versus the meager 5 years/unlimited miles on the CR-V.
