The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is widely praised for, among other things, its abundant cargo volume, smooth ride and healthy levels of standard technology. However, one feature stands out above all else that serves as this ride’s singular “ace in the hole:” its available third-row that extends the seating capacity up to seven. Such a capability is a true rarity in the compact SUV class.
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe does not boast the three-row, seven-seating capability of the 2020 Tiguan, but it still has a healthy array of other features to make it a tempting offer for prospective buyers. Read on for our comparison between the 2020 Tiguan and the 2020 Santa Fe.
2020 Volkswagen Tiguan
2020 Hyundai Santa Fe
|Up to 22 city / 29 highway||Fuel Economy||Up to 22 city / 29 highway|
|5, 7||Seating Capacity||5|
|73.5 cubic feet||Maximum Cargo Volume (with seat area)||71.3 cubic feet|
As noted above, one main factor is the heightened seating capacity of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan. If you’re looking to periodically transport seven individuals in a compact SUV, then the 2020 Tiguan is the option for you. The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe does not offer an available third row.
Performance-wise, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan emphasizes comfort above all else. It comes in five trim levels, every one of which is loaded with features. Cutting-edge elements abound, including smartphone integration, a user-friendly infotainment system and a pleasant serving of driver assistance features.
The base trim of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is already blessed with standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, six-speaker stereo, USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, cloth upholstery and alloy wheels.
