2017 Tiguan vs 2017 Chevy Trax

When you're in the market for a new SUV, it will likely come to light that SUVs are perhaps the most versatile option for cars on the market today. They offer towing power, comfort, and space among other conveniences—SUVs are designed to give you the best options in one bundle. As a buyer, that means that you're unlikely to want to make sacrifices for a less convenient car.

The trick of deciding what car fits your needs best is often unwound by comparing vehicles side by side. Take the 2017 Chevrolet Trax and the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan—both SUVs, both designed to give their drivers a reliable, stylish, and all-out fun car. However, there are a few things that make these vehicles distinct from one another when they're examined more closely.

While both cars offer stark competition, the 2017 Trax and the 2017 Tiguan present distinctly different options for drivers. The 2017 Chevy Trax offers a lower MSRP and higher fuel rating than the Tiguan while providing the same number of seats and front-wheel drive. However, the 2017 Trax is lacking something vital: towing power. Though the Trax can likely tow small loads, this pales in comparison to the 2017 Tiguan's more powerful engine and 2,200 lb towing capacity.

In addition to its towing power, the Tiguan offers comparable fuel economy and accommodations. The 2017 Tiguan checks off all the same boxes as the Trax while offering the towing capacity you'd expect from an SUV.
