2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Chevy Equinox

Serving Milwaukee, WI

Small crossovers are perfect for most families. Many people will be checking out the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan. You'll love the spacious interior design and refined exterior styling of the Tiguan. For 2020, it's been updated with even more standard safety technologies. Let's find out how the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan compares to the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox.

Performance

Every new 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan comes equipped with the same rewarding powertrain. Under the hood sits a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Volkswagen tunes it to crank out a satisfying 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission aids the responsive nature of the Tiguan. Meanwhile, Chevy rates the Equinox's base turbocharged four-cylinder engine to develop 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. Power is fed to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. To get the Equinox with a more fulfilling powertrain, buyers must fork over more of their hard-earned money.

Interior

Both of these crossover SUVs are highly recommended family vehicles. Like the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox provides plenty of space to stretch out. However, only the Tiguan offers a third row. This increases the passenger capacity of the Tiguan to seven people. This is a significant advantage for drivers who need to accommodate a couple of extra people. When taking a road trip with family and friends, you may not need to take two separate vehicles. More significant storage space gives the Tiguan yet another advantage. While the Tiguan provides 37.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind its second row, there are 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the Equinox's second row.

Safety

You can expect these SUVs to offer excellent crash protection. They both were named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. Drivers will also enjoy standard safety technologies like automatic emergency braking. However, Intelligent Crash Response is only found in the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan. In the event your airbags are deployed during a collision, this system will automatically activate your emergency flashers and unlock your doors. It also shuts off the fuel pump to help prevent a potential explosion. Automatic Post-Collision Braking is another feature exclusive to the new Tiguan. Volkswagen engineers this system to help reduce the seriousness of an impact.
