Find the right 2019 SUV: Tiguan or RAV4

The first category that most people look at when comparing vehicles is price, and that’s totally understandable. In this case, the Tiguan is the clear winner with a base MSRP that’s $1,000 less than the RAV4. To start with, the Tiguan is already trying to save you money.

Do you have a big family? Then most trims of the Tiguan, including the base S trim, will be able to support you with seating for up to 7 passengers. Some trims give you the option between 5 or 7 passengers so that you can optimize your car for your lifestyle. The RAV4 gives you no such options. You’re stuck with 5 passengers no matter what your needs are or even how much you are willing to pay for the model.

Steel wheels are largely a thing of the past. They are heavy, ugly, require cheap plastic hub-caps, and somehow still come standard on the 2019 RAV4. You will not find steel wheels anywhere in the Tiguan lineup. Moreover, the Tiguan wheels go up to 20 inches on higher trims and the RAV4 tops out at 19-inch wheels.

Finally, if remote start is an important feature to you as it is to most people that live in the Midwest, then you will have to turn to the Tiguan to get it from the factory. Many Tiguan trims come with it standard, but it’s at least available on every trim.
