When considering the best crossovers available in today’s market, two model brands always jump off the page - Volkswagen and Toyota. The reasons for this are obvious, as both manufacturers’ flagship crossovers - the Tiguan and RAV4, respectively - are class leaders in every facet of the drive that consumers are most concerned about. For budget-friendly prices, each of these models offer All-Wheel Drive functionality, great versatility both inside and out, and power that begs to be unleashed. Still, there can only be one winner between these two, and it’s our job to find it.

Reserve your 2020 VW Tiguan at Frank Boucher VW in Racine WI
Nobody would deny that you simply can’t go wrong with either the 2020 Tiguan or RAV4 in your driveway, but there are definite fields in which the Tiguan holds an unrivaled upper hand. For starters, it offers much greater high-end torque and seating capacity than the RAV4, essential for a bigger audience during road trips, or to handle more things that you need to bring along on the commute.
But the Tiguan also shines in its tech capacities as well, offering a built-in WI-Fi hotspot and Driver Personalization system that the RAV4 can’t match. Add this to the wealth of safety and driver assistance innovations that it offers (including Pedestrian Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control and an Overhead View Camera, among many others), and the choice is clear.
We want to help you learn all you can about the new 2020 Tiguan ahead of its release, so feel free to give our Boucher VW sales team a call at any time if you have any further questions about this upcoming leader.
