High-End Performance

Each Volkswagen crossover SUV offers excellent performance, but some drivers will prefer the V6 engine found on the Touareg. The 3.6L V6 engine offers 280 hp while still achieving a respectable 23 mpg on the highway**. The Tiguan, on the other hand, scales down on the horsepower spectrum, but with the added benefit of improved fuel efficiency — 184 hp, 27 mpg hwy**, and 22 mpg city**, along with 221 lb-ft of torque. So, if you want more fuel efficiency, the Tiguan is a great choice, while the Touareg remains the king of horsepower.
