2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
