2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2017 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Volkswagen Tiguan, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen Tiguan as you will with the Ford Flex, 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). Clearly, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a better financial choice over the Ford Flex, 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. Both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Flex have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Tiguan is much slimmer than the Ford Flex, 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 Ford Flex.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Flex 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 Ford Flex.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Flex. The Volkswagen Tiguan has less cargo space than the Ford Flex, 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 Ford Flex.
