2016 Toyota RAV4 vs 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan
The Toyota RAV4 has been around for just over two decades, and through the generations it has become one of the most popular compact crossovers on the market. The compact crossover market itself has become progressively more and more popular through the years, and now there are a ton of options in the segment. So we thought we’d see how our favorite model in the segment measures up to one of the other compact crossovers by comparing the 2016 Toyota RAV4 vs 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota RAV4
Although the two vehicles both belong to the compact crossover segment, the RAV4 seems to blow the Tiguan out of the water in regards to each specification that we took a look at. Let’s start at the top with fuel efficiency. Both on the highway and through city streets like those around Edmonton, the RAV4 utilizes 1.4 l/100km less fuel than the Tiguan, saving you a lot of money at the pump in the long run.
While efficiency is important in any automotive class, space is perhaps the most important specification in a crossover like the RAV4 or Tiguan. Behind the back seat of the RAV4 sits 38.4 cu. ft. of space to fill with luggage and any other cargo you might have, and that’s 14.6 cu. ft. less than the Tiguan offers. Drop the back seats down, and the advantage grows to an extra 17.3 cu. ft. As for passenger volume, the advantage gets even steeper, as the RAV4 offers an extra 21.1 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
