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 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its 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 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Tucson or the Volkswagen Tiguan, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is a little wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Tucson is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Tucson doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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