2014 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Wrangler offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Jeep Wrangler 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
The Volkswagen Tiguan requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Jeep Wrangler 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. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Jeep Wrangler. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Wrangler as you will in the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
