Which SUV has the best features for you: The VW Atlas or the GMC Terrain?

When looking at numerous different metrics between the two vehicles, the choice quickly becomes obvious. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is hands-down the more powerful, practical and convenient SUV, for a number of different reasons.

With its 184 hp, 2.0L engine, the Tiguan easily has the power to get the job done, regardless of whatever you are trying to do. Engine power is definitely one of the most important features when looking at an SUV, and Tiguan delivers.

From a standpoint of practicality, the Tiguan provides something that almost no other vehicle in its class brings to the table. The seven seats in the Tiguan are perfect for a larger family that does not need the added overall size of a bigger SUV, and more seats means more available storage for the Tiguan.

One of the best convenience features that the Tiguan can boast is the remote trunk release. Often something that is taken for granted, the ability to open the trunk when your hands are full is something that helps the Tiguan lead the way in convenience features.

Last, but certainly not least, the warranty of the Tiguan, at double the length of the GMC Terrain, is one of the best in its class. This guarantees you coverage in case of any unforeseen accidents, for much longer than other compact SUVs.
