Compare The New 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV Against The Competitors

Drivers in around the Columbia and Jefferson City, Missouri area who are looking for a new 2019 SUV can now visit us at Joe Machens Volkswagen of Columbia. We understand that finding a new vehicle can be a hard and tiring process, and we hope this comparison article helps.

In this article, we will compare the specs, features and safety aspects of the new 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and one of its competitors, the new 2019 Ford Escape. Both vehicles are similar to each other; however, let’s explain why the new Tiguan is the better of the options.

Advantages Of The Volkswagen Tiguan Over The Escape

When we look at safety features, the new 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with an optional Autonomous Emergency Braking system that is designed to use forward mounted sensors that warns the driver of any possible collisions ahead. If you, the driver, don’t react in time, the Tiguan will apply the brakes for you at full force. While the new Escape has a collision warning system, it will not apply the brakes for you.

The new Tiguan is also the more reliable vehicle, with an engine block made of cast iron for durability. While the Escape’s engine uses an aluminum block - which is more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures.
