Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Hyundai Tucson 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 Hyundai Tucson 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Tucson will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 Hyundai Tucson is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Tucson will do just as well as the Volkswagen Tiguan, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Tucson has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Hyundai Tucson than that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
