Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Taos than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Volkswagen Taos 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 Volkswagen Taos 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 Volkswagen Taos 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. Both the Volkswagen Taos and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen Taos is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. If you go with the Volkswagen Taos, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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

Performance
The Volkswagen Taos has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Volkswagen Taos 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 Volkswagen Taos as you will in the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The Volkswagen Taos comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
