Why buy a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan instead of a Ford Escape?

If you're looking for a compact SUV, you certainly have a lot of options. There are a lot of new sport utility vehicles on the market including several high-quality models. Two examples are the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Escape.

These two SUVs offer a sporty drive with the added bonus of outstanding comfort, good cargo space and modern styling. That said, the Tiguan in its current form was launched after the Ford Escape and is therefore more modern on a variety of levels.

In the end, the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Escape both have arguments to convince consumers. Here are three reasons to buy a Volkswagen Tiguan.

It is more efficient

The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine producing 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The Ford Escape offers a standard 168 horsepower engine, but the most popular engine is a 1.5-liter turbo with 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.

These two engines stand out by being turbocharged, but as you can see there is a huge difference between the Tiguan engine and the Escape engine when it comes to torque. Torque is what matters most in daily driving situations and we quickly notice the difference on the road.

It has more space

One of the most outstanding features that separates the Tiguan from the Escape is the interior space. With more than 1,000 liters behind the rear seats, the new Tiguan is more spacious than the Ford while offering more room for passengers as well.

It has more modern technologies

The other interesting element of the new 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is its modern technologies. Being more recent than the Escape, the Tiguan surprises with its modern and sometimes exclusive functions like the digital display system for the dashboard called Virtual Cockpit.
