2015 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Tahoe than in the Volkswagen Touareg. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Tahoe as you will with the Volkswagen Touareg, 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 Tahoe or the Volkswagen Touareg, 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 Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Tahoe is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Tahoe is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Tahoe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Tahoe does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Chevrolet Tahoe has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Touareg, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Chevrolet Tahoe, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Volkswagen Touareg. The Chevrolet Tahoe has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Tahoe more than the Volkswagen Touareg, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Tahoe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Touareg.
