Comparison Review

The Mazda CX-5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Mazda CX-5 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

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).

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mazda CX-5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
