2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Chevrolet Traverse 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 Chevrolet Traverse, 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). The Chevrolet Traverse will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Traverse will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Traverse greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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