Which Volkswagen is Right for Me: 2018 Passat or 2018 Tiguan Limited? New Car Research from Carter VW

When you’re looking for your next family car, you have hundreds of options — so how do you begin your search? It might begin by picking a segment or style of car. A sedan offers you a classic look, a comfortable cabin and a sporty driving stance; a crossover SUV generally provides greater cargo space, a comfy ride and a confident, raised driving position. Lucky for you, Volkswagen makes a mid-size sedan and a compact crossover — starting for less than $23,000! The 2018 VW Passat and the 2018 VW Tiguan Limited both offer outstanding value. Let’s compare these two vehicles, to help you discover which one is a better fit for you and your family:

Size and Storage: 2018 Volkswagen Passat VS 2018 Tiguan Limited

The 2018 Tiguan Limited is a two-row crossover similar in overall size to the 2018 Volkswagen Passat, a midsize sedan. In fact, while the 2018 VW Passat provides 102 cubic feet of passenger space in the cabin, the 2018 VW Tiguan Limited gives you a little less at 95.4 cubic feet. That means your rear seat passengers will get an extra 3 inches of legroom in the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. However, when it comes to cargo storage, the 2018 VW Tiguan Limited is our winner — with 23.8 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, compared to 15.9 cubic feet in the trunk of the 2018 VW Passat.

Style and Features: 2018 Volkswagen Passat VS 2018 Tiguan Limited

While you can get a host of premium comfort options and infotainment features on both these vehicles, there are a few standard features unique to each one. For instance, the 2018 VW Tiguan Limited has standard heated, power exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. That’s an extra upgrade on the Passat. For its part, the 2018 VW Passat comes standard with an 8-way power adjusting driver’s seat and power adjusting lumbar support. Cruise control is also standard on the Passat, but not the Tiguan Limited.

When it comes to safety, Volkswagen provided both these vehicles with unique features to help keep you and your family protected. The 2018 Tiguan Limited has crucial safety systems like Electronic Stability Control and the Intelligent Crash Response system, which engages the brakes, turns off the fuel pump and unlocks the doors in the event of an accident. The 2018 Volkswagen Passat gets all these features as well, plus available upgrades can add driver assistance features like Autonomous Emergency Braking, Park Pilot and Blind Spot Monitor.

Performance: 2018 Volkswagen Passat VS 2018 Tiguan Limited

All-wheel drive provides significant grip and handling benefits, especially when traveling off-road — and its only available on the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited 4MOTION®. The Tiguan Limited also boasts a powerful turbocharged engine that generates 200 horsepower and 207 lb/ft of torque. The stock engine in the 2018 Volkswagen Passat is less powerful, but it does achieve up to 36 highway MPG for superior fuel efficiency compared to the Tiguan Limited.
