2017 Kia Sportage vs 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan

The crossover market has grown to become home to some of the most versatile and reliable vehicles out there. There’s a good reason for this; well-built crossovers have an uncanny ability to combine the functionality and volume of an SUV with the sporty demeanor and personality of a sports car. Today, we have two of the most highly regarded crossovers in the industry on display: the 2017 Kia Sportage and 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan. Both are lauded for their commitment to your safety and connection to the outside world, but how well do they match up with each other?

Our team at Garden Grove Kia wants to help you make a better decision about which crossover vehicle is best for you, so we decided to put the Sportage and Tiguan up to the test. Though they may be smaller in stature, the Sportage and Tiguan are industry giants, so let’s jump in and see what they bring to the table!

2017 Kia Sportage Garden Grove CA

The 2017 Kia Sportage in Garden Grove CA and 2017 Volkswagen match up pretty evenly when comparing power for the price point. However, there are some aspects in which the 2017 Sportage takes a clear upper hand. Not only are you afforded more interior cargo volume, but headroom and legroom are also greater than that of the Tiguan as well. Your much more efficient drive in the Sportage (up to 6 more highway miles per gallon!) will be accented by a wealth of interior safety features that have earned it IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus designation, recognition that the 2017 Tiguan can’t lay claim to. Some of these available driver assistance features include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane Change Assist
  • Front and Rear Parking Assist
  • Many more!
