2018 GMC Terrain vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, with comparable head- and legroom. The GMC Terrain 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain 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). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive 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. The GMC Terrain will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the GMC Terrain will do just as well as the Volkswagen Tiguan, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Terrain greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The GMC Terrain has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Terrain is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
