Then, of course, is size and space. Customers purchase SUV crossovers because of their advantages with size, both for passengers and for cargo. If it didn't matter, well, then they would just get a sedan. The 2018 VW Tiguan, unlike the 2017 Honda CR-V, offers third-row seating for when you have a full crew to transport.
Last but not least, there's safety. Drivers with families are always interested in which safety features are included with which SUV crossover models. The 2018 VW Tiguan comes with a wide arrange of safety features and driver-assist technology. Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist make driving on highways safer than ever before by keeping you aware as possible of the cars around you as well as when your own driving starts to slip from drowsiness or distracted driving. Blind Spot Monitor will watch and warn you about the cars on the road you can't see. None of these features are included in the 2017 Honda CR-V LX trim, only on higher-priced trim models.
