2017 Ford Escape vs. 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Ford Escape 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Escape will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Tiguan. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Escape and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Escape, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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

Performance
With the Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Ford Escape has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The Ford Escape comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
