The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan vs the 2017 Honda HR-V

Featuring a powerful ride, modern style, and the kind of cabin and cargo space that Long Beach drivers need, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan bests its competition. Read on to see how the 2017 Honda HR-V measures up to the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, and then see for yourself how impressive the Tiguan is when you test drive it at Pacific VW.


Featuring a 2.0L 4-cylinder 16-valve turbocharged engine, the new Volkswagen Tiguan generates a resounding 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of available torque. This makes for a robust and comfortable ride, which the standard front-wheel drivetrain of the Tiguan further enhances. With its 102.5-inch wheelbase, the Tiguan has a tight turning radius, and it can handle with nuance and precision, tackling those Torrance streets with confidence and dynamism. And with a strut-type front suspension and multilink rear suspension, the intuitive and responsive handling of the Volkswagen Tiguan ensures an enjoyable experience. What’s more, the Tiguan boasts a 16.9 gallon fuel tank and achieves an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway*.

The 2017 Honda HR-V cannot compete. With a 1.8L 4-cylinder aluminum alloy engine, the HR-V only offers drivers 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of available torque. The HR-V does earn a superior 31 mpg highway; however, with a smaller fuel tank of just 13.2 gallons, the higher efficiency doesn't actually give drivers much additional time between fill ups. And with less power, as well as a more rigid torsion beam rear suspension, the HR-V doesn't drive with the same versatility as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Choosing the Best Vehicle for You

The 2017 Honda HR-V offers drivers a competitive experience, but it cannot match the Volkswagen Tiguan.
