2014 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2015 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Volkswagen Tiguan than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler 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
The Volkswagen Tiguan requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volkswagen Tiguan is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler. 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 Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Tiguan is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volkswagen Tiguan, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

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

Handling
The Volkswagen Tiguan has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Jeep Wrangler. When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Tiguan has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Volkswagen Tiguan offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Volkswagen Tiguan as you will in the Jeep Wrangler.
