2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Chevy Equinox

Every day we’re seeing more and more improvements on vehicles when it comes to technology and performance. When the latest innovations are occurring at the speed of light, how do you know if the vehicle you’re interested in is worth it or not? There are some brands that can always be counted on to deliver, and we have a couple here. Check out the comparison we’ve created between the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2018 Chevy Equinox.

While people can debate what features are most important in an SUV, most often we talk about performance. Why not? When you need a fully-capable SUV to power you up hills and drag along trailers, the 2018 Tiguan fits the bill with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that grinds out more horsepower and torque than its rival.

People First Warranty in the 2018 Tiguan

It’s pretty much settled that the Tiguan offers drivers better performance than the Equinox. Despite Chevy’s reputation as offering some of the best powertrains in the industry. When you look past the performance features, you’ll find other commendable aspects of the Tiguan that outweigh those of the Equinox. Peace of mind goes far beyond the safety features of your vehicle (which the Tiguan has plenty of, by the way). Coverage in this SUV goes a long way. The People First Warranty, Volkswagen’s bumper-to-bumper warranty, is good for 6 years/72,000 miles and is transferable to new owners afterward should you decide to sell it. That transferable coverage is longer in years and mileage than any other automotive competitor.

The Equinox is certainly a good vehicle, but it falls behind in certain categories where the Tiguan shines. If you want to see the 2018 Tiguan for yourself, come check it out here at Hall Volkswagen in Brookfield WI today or schedule a test drive online!
