2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2017 Honda CR-V

View Inventory Learn More


Both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Honda CR-V deliver impressive interior, performance, and safety specs for a compact SUV. While the differences between these two vehicles may be subtle, it is worth taking into consideration why the Tiguan inches out over the CR-V before you hit the road in a new vehicle.


The Tiguan’s Superior Towing Capacity

The CR-V tows a mere 1,500 lbs, a paltry amount compared to the Tiguan’s impressive towing capacity. The towing capacity of the Tiguan exceeds two tons, averaging around 2,200 lbs.

The Luxurious and Spacious Interior of the Tiguan

While the Honda CR-V is well-regarded for its interior features, such as its comfortable seating and its front console, it doesn’t match up to the 2018 Tiguan. The Tiguan has the following features standard or available, while the CR-V doesn’t:

  • Seating for up to 7
  • Spacious second row seating
  • Elegant, user-friendly center console
  • 8-inch touch screen, providing turn-by-turn information
  • Vienna leather seating surfaces

The Tech-Savvy Tiguan

The CR-V’s rather clunky center console doesn’t have Apple CarPlay available, nor does the CR-V offer a Fender Premium Audio System with nine booming speakers. The CR-V, of course, does not offer the Volkswagen-specific Car-Net feature, which informs you with driving and safety information, allows you to connect with music and apps, and allows you to call your friends and family hands-free. The Tiguan, built for 21st century drivers, has all this and more, leaving the CR-V in the dust.

Although the CR-V is loved by drivers and critics alike, it’s clear which vehicle is the superior one: the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. The increased cargo space of the 2018 Tiguan makes it not only spacious for storage, but furthermore a family-friendly vehicle.
