If you are looking for a small SUV then you’ve probably heard about both the 2019 Volkswagen Tigaun and the 2019 Ford Escape. But which one should you go for? That’s what we are here to find out. For the purpose of this comparison we are going to take the specs and features of the base trims. So, you’ll see the 2019 VW Tiguan S and the 2019 Ford Escape S.

From Ford’s reputation alone, it’s easy to think the Ford model would be more powerful. However, this isn’t the case. In fact, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has more horsepower and significantly more torque than its competitor. Likewise, you’ll also have an 8-speed shiftable automatic in the Tiguan S, whereas the Escape S has a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Let’s take a closer look at the other features the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan brings to your drive.

Advantages of the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan

As you can see in the table above, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan can also give you a bit more wiggle room when it comes to features and even the warranty of the vehicle. If you are looking for an SUV that has a bright and airy interior then you might want to check out the Tiguan. While the base trim won’t get you a sunroof, there are other trims of the Tiguan that will. Unfortunately, this is not a feature you can find on the Ford Escape.

You’ll also have double the amount of time for the basic warranty in the Tiguan. While the Ford Escape has a respectable 3-year 36000-mile basic warranty, the Tiguan will get you a 6-year 72000-mile warranty. So, if you are someone who is a bit clumsy or if you simply worry about driving factors you can’t control, the extended warranty of the Tiguan S can go a long way to easing your mind.
