Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Toyota RAV4 than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Toyota RAV4 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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
The Toyota RAV4 has much lower torque than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling

Utility
