2018 Dodge Durango vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Durango offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Durango and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Durango, 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 Dodge Durango 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Durango 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 Dodge Durango, 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 Dodge Durango transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango 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 Dodge Durango and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Dodge Durango has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
