Volkswagen Tiguan vs Nissan Rogue

The Volkswagen Tiguan and 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 Volkswagen took both these SUVs for a test drive through Oklahoma City, Norman, and Edmond 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 MPG / 29 highway MPG.[1] This means that 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, and the Volkswagen Tiguan provides you with a wealth of impressive features to keep you secure on the road. 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. And if you ever find yourself in a collision, the Intelligent Crash Response System will activate, helping to get you to safety as quickly as possible.

The Volkswagen Tiguan also comes standard with:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LATCH child seat anchor points
  • Side Curtain Protection® head airbags, front and rear
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • 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, which could leave drivers feeling less secure when they’re out on the road.

Comfort & Convenience
