2015 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Tiguan than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota 4Runner 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota 4Runner 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 Toyota 4Runner 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. Both the Toyota 4Runner and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota 4Runner 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 Toyota 4Runner, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Toyota 4Runner does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The Toyota 4Runner has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota 4Runner greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Toyota 4Runner offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Toyota 4Runner, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The Toyota 4Runner comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
