2015 Toyota Venza vs. 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota Venza and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Venza 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). Whether you pick the Toyota Venza or the Volkswagen Tiguan, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Venza and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Toyota Venza doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The Toyota Venza has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Tiguan is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. The Toyota Venza has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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