2017 Nissan Murano vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Murano offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Nissan Murano and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
The Nissan Murano requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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). The Nissan Murano 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 Nissan Murano will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Murano is much wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Murano, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Handling
The Nissan Murano 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 Nissan Murano will do just as well as the Volkswagen Tiguan, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Murano greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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