2015 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Dodge Durango 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
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.

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 a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, allowing you to more easily maneuver 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
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Durango, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Tiguan.
