2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Unlimited is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Volkswagen Tiguan. With the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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