More Space, More Versatile

The five-seat Ford Escape offers between 37.5 to 65 cubic feet of cargo space. The Volkswagen Tiguan offers more versatility, as Old Saybrook families can choose between two or three rows of seating. The three-row Tiguan models offer more flexibility, with seating for seven and 12 to 65 cubic feet of cargo space. Two-row Tiguan models offer 38 to 73 cubic feet of cargo space.

Superior Performance

While the Ford Escape offers hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, the base model earns 30 combined miles per gallon and only offers 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged inline-3 engine.

The Volkswagen Tiguan's 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. In addition to earning 30 highway miles per gallon, Volkswagen's SUV also offers 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with Normal, Sport, Eco, Snow, Off-Road, and Custom Off-Road drive modes. These aren't offered on the Ford Escape, which doesn't feature standard four-wheel drive.

More Equipment, More Technologically Advanced

The Ford Escape's SYNC infotainment isn't as advanced as the Tiguan's Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, the new VW MIB3 Multimedia Infotainment System, and wireless Car-Net App-Connect. The Ford Escape features a Bang & Olufsen® sound system, but the VW Tiguan's Fender® Premium Audio System features 480 watts. Both SUVs include wireless charging, Wi-Fi, and Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ compatibility, but the Escape can't match the VW Tiguan's 15-color ambient lighting.
