The Volkswagen Tiguan and the Hyundai Santa Fe have a lot to recommend them. They're both powerful vehicles with style, great features, and plenty of safety options. Which one is really the right choice for you and your family?

Our team at Oklahoma City VW took both these SUVs for a test drive through Oklahoma City, Norman, and Edmond, Oklahoma, to see how they stacked up. To find out what we thought, read our in-depth Volkswagen Tiguan vs. Hyundai Santa Fe comparison.

Fuel Efficiency

When it comes to fuel efficiency, both these vehicles are equally matched. Whichever one you choose, you'll get an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG.* This means, whether you're driving the Volkswagen Tiguan or the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll spend more time cruising down the road and less time fueling up at the gas station.

Safety & Security

Safety is a key factor in whatever vehicle you choose. The Volkswagen Tiguan supplies you with a wealth of impressive features to help keep you secure on the road. First, it provides you with Anti-Slip Regulation to help you stay safe and in control of your vehicle even under less-than-ideal weather conditions. If you ever find yourself in a collision, the Intelligent Crash Response System will activate, helping get you to safety as quickly as possible.

The Volkswagen Tiguan also comes standard with:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) child seat anchor points
  • Side Curtain Protection® head airbags, front and rear
  • Electronic Stability Control and Electronic Differential Lock
  • Engine Brake Assist

The Hyundai Santa Fe comes with many similar safety features, including the Tire Pressure Monitoring System and LATCH child seat anchor points. However, it does not include the Intelligent Crash Response System or Anti-Slip Regulation, possibly leaving drivers feeling less secure when they're out on the road.

Comfort & Convenience

You'll be able to pack in all your family and friends in the VW Tiguan. It provides you with 7-seat configuration with third-row seating, so all your kids' friends will be able to come along to soccer practice. The cloth seating surface comes with an attractive quilted rhombus design, while the 40/20/40-split folding second row enables you to easily make more room for any luggage or gear you'll need on your adventures.

On the other hand, the Hyundai Santa Fe only has room for five total passengers, so it could put a slight crimp in your travel plans. You'll have 60/40 split fold-flat seats to increase the room in your vehicle, although you still won't have the passenger space you'll enjoy in the Volkswagen Tiguan.
