2014 BMW X1 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X1, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW X1 or the Volkswagen Tiguan, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. When looking at overall length, the BMW X1 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X1 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Volkswagen Tiguan. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X1 as you will in the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
