The 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan might both provide families with a versatile platform for all sorts of adventures. After all, these two small crossovers are both class leaders in many respects. That doesn’t make them equal, however. If you’re trying to decide between them in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area, you can take a look at our detailed comparison right here.

Power and Efficiency

When you consider crossover utility vehicles, you want enough efficiency to save you money at the pump, as well as a powerful engine. To that end, the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan starts with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It earns an EPA estimated 21 mpg city/26 mpg highway/23 mpg combined.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda CR-V uses a 2.4L four-cylinder that generates 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V yields an EPA estimate of 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined* with front-wheel drive and continuously variable transmission, or 25 mpg city/31 mpg highway/27 mpg combined with all-wheel drive.

While the Tiguan might make slightly more power, the CR-V is far and away more efficient.

Space and Capacity

Crossover utility vehicles are all about giving you more versatile space than a car. The 2016 Honda CR-V offers a respectable 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and up to 70.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Overall passenger volume in the cabin is estimated at 104.1 cubic feet.

The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan has only 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and only 56.1 cubic feet of total cargo volume with seats folded down. The passenger compartment is smaller too, at 95.4 cubic feet.

You can see that the CR-V offers more useful space for both you and your luggage.
