VW Tiguan vs. Honda CR-V: Interior Features & Dimensions

Another big difference between the Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Honda CR-V is the interior. Everything the Honda CR-V has, the Tiguan has – but better. The Tiguan’s base 8-inch touchscreen beats out the 5-inch LCD screen on the base CR-V, and only the Tiguan includes features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ standard. And when comparing space, the Tiguan alone offers an extra third row of seating as an option, which brings your capacity to seven passengers. The CR-V is limited to five passengers. Compare the two dimensions below:

2022 VW Tiguan Interior Dimensions

  • 123.9 cubic feet of passenger volume
  • 73.4 cubic feet of cargo volume

2022 Honda CR-V Interior Dimensions

  • 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume
  • 75.8 cubic feet of cargo volume

VW Tiguan vs. Honda CR-V: Safety Features

Finally, what about the safety features? Both models include all the standard features you’d expect, like:

  • Forward-collision warning
  • Automated emergency braking
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane-keeping assistance
  • Front and rear parking sensors

But yet again, the Tiguan offers more. The Tiguan offers a surround-view camera that the CR-V does not, and features like a blind-spot monitor and auto-dimming rearview mirror can be added as options to any trim. The CR-V limits these features to higher levels.
