The compact crossover market is more competitive than ever before. More entries have hit the market over the past few years, with older models continuously refined to entice new customers and retain old ones. The Volkswagen Tiguan has been around for over a decade, and the 2020 model year sees major enhancements to make it more competitive against its chief rivals: the Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4, and the Subaru Forester. Here's why you should choose the 2020 Tiguan over the others and test drive it O'Connor Volkswagen. Shoppers will find our dealership in Augusta and less than a 45-minute drive outside of Auburn.

The 2020 VW Tiguan vs the Competition

Tiguan vs. Honda CR-V: Although it has established a reputation for being a well-rounded vehicle, the Honda CR-V for the 2020 model year is comparatively sparse on standard features. With the Volkswagen Tiguan, Lewiston, ME shoppers get a 6.5-inch touchscreen instead of a small five-inch display screen on the CR-V. A six-speaker stereo also comes standard on the Tiguan instead of the four-speaker stereo system on the CR-V, along with an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (left out on the Honda vehicle). While both the CR-V and the Tiguan are typically two-row vehicles, you can opt for a third row on the latter to expand maximum occupancy from five to seven people.

Tiguan vs. Toyota RAV4: Unlike the CR-V, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 is touted for its long list of standard features, which puts it on par with the Tiguan. However, if Rockland, ME drivers need more cargo space, they'd be better off going for the VW. Although both vehicles offer 37.6 cubic feet behind the rear seats for cargo volume, the difference is clear when you fold those seats down for maximum space. The Tiguan offers up to 73.5 cubic feet, which is 3.7 cubic feet more than what its Toyota counterpart can offer. Brunswick shoppers who need the most space available should choose the Tiguan.

Tiguan vs. Subaru Forester: Although the standard all-wheel-drive system on the 2020 Subaru Forester is commendable, its predicted reliability is mediocre, with two Power Circles out of a possible five from J.D. Power. By comparison, the Tiguan has a 3.5/5 Power Circle rating, making it one of the better vehicles in the class for Winthrop to choose in this category.
