Take a Test Drive Inside the 2016 Tiguan in Ramapo NJ
The exterior of the 2016 Tiguan and 2016 Honda CR-V are similar in the use of horizontal lines and angled headlights that streak back towards the rear of the vehicle. However, the sporty design of the Tiguan looks more adventurous than the smooth and streamlined body of the CR-V. Under the hood, the Honda CR-V comes with a standard 2.4-liter I-4 engine that puts down 185 horsepower and is capable of towing up to 1,500 lbs. While that might be enough for some drivers, those looking to take full advantage of their crossover SUV might prefer the 200 horsepower and 2,200lbs of towing capability that comes with the Tiguan's 2.0-liter I-4 engine.
Looking to the interior, the Tiguan's simple and efficient design makes it appear more spacious and modern than the CR-V. With a more traditional layout, you can take full advantage of the new features and technology inside the Tiguan, without the learning curve you might experience inside the CR-V. Comfortable seating for up to five passengers comes standard on both the CR-V and Tiguan, but only the Tiguan comes with standard V-tex leatherette seating trim, adding to the experience of luxury inside the cabin. An eight-speaker audio system inside the Tiguan pairs perfectly with the Bluetooth compatibility and first-row LCD screen. Whether you prefer the style, or simply love the advanced capability, the Tiguan is a great value in new crossover SUV.
