2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Dodge Journey

The automotive market is ever changing and expanding to meet consumer's needs. From different models and new features, everything is done to give prospective car buyers more choices so that they can make the right decision. One of these options is the creation of the compact SUV. To discuss this model of car, we've brought forth two versatile and popular compact SUVs currently on the market: the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2018 Dodge Journey.

A full-sized SUV is packed with power and carrying capacity, but can be too cumbersome and unwieldy to drive as well as having a poor fuel economy. A compact SUV is a slightly smaller sized vehicle. This helps it retain the SUV's capabilities of power, seating, and cargo space, but also making it far easier to maneuver on the road and with a buffed-up fuel economy. This makes the compact SUV very appealing to those who appreciate the strong design of the SUV, but want a vehicle that's more responsive on the road. To help you on your decision to see if a compact SUV is the right fit for you, we've compared the new models of the Tiguan and the Journey. Let's take a look:

Both the Tiguan and the Journey are serviceable and reliable crossover SUVs to be proud of. Despite this, it's still important to determine the best deal between the two, and in that the award goes to the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. The Dodge Journey has a slight advantage on size and engine power, but the engine's extra horsepower is used to negate the Journey's larger frame and weight, rather than exclusively go to improve your car's acceleration and handling. The Tiguan meanwhile is leaner and cleaner, with a cheaper price, adjustable cargo space, and a greatly improved fuel economy. Beyond that, the Tiguan also has a vast number of convenience and safety features aimed to assist and improve your driving experiences. These include:

  • 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive
  • App-Connect
  • Heated Steering Wheel
  • Digital Cockpit
  • Adaptive Front Lighting System
  • And many more!
