Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Volkswagen Taos. The Volkswagen Taos offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Volkswagen Taos, 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). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Taos. 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 Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Taos have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Volkswagen Taos. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Taos.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Taos are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Taos, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Volkswagen Taos. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Taos.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Taos.
