2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Chevrolet Equinox 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 Chevrolet Equinox will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
