2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Dodge Journey

2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Dodge Journey

The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the most forward-thinking SUVs available. It is a crossover, but you can’t call it just a compact crossover or a midsize crossover because it is sold with two different wheelbases, the "LWB" and the "SWB". The compact crossover is one of the most popular vehicle classes out there, so selling a vehicle that can be both a compact crossover and a midsize crossover lets Volkswagen cover two audiences at the same time.

But the 2020 Dodge Journey is a competitor to the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan and draws from the same midsize 3-row crossover market. The Journey does not have two wheelbases, but what it does have is a slimmer price tag than the Tiguan. So, if you compare the longer wheelbase of the Tiguan to the Journey, you get an even matchup between two different concepts of the midsize 3-row Crossover. The chart below compares the two side by side.

Model Comparison Analysis

The two midsize crossovers are not matched in terms of engine power. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan has a turbocharged engine that just plain pushes harder and is more energetic despite the Journey being made by an automaker known for performance. There are a lot more reasons to prefer the Tiguan besides performance and parking sensors, but the main thing to remember is you get your money’s worth when you choose the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan.
