Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox 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 Chevrolet Equinox 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. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Equinox is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Equinox as you will in the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
