2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2018 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Volkswagen Tiguan than the Dodge Durango. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Tiguan, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a better financial choice over the Dodge Durango, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen Tiguan carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Tiguan is much slimmer than the Dodge Durango, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Durango.

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

Handling
The Volkswagen Tiguan has the same turning radius as the Dodge Durango, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Tiguan has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Dodge Durango. The Volkswagen Tiguan has less cargo space than the Dodge Durango, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volkswagen Tiguan than that of the Dodge Durango.
