2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Chevy Equinox

Generally, SUVs come in 3 separate builds. There are compact SUVs, which generally have 5 passenger seating and somewhat minimal cargo space. There are midsize SUVs which generally have 5 passenger seating with improved cabin room and an average to a good amount of cargo capacity. Finally, there are full-size SUVs which have 7-8 passenger seating and a similar amount of trunk space and storage room compared to midsize SUVs.

Of course, there are always exceptions, and we have one to look at today. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan fits the mold of a compact SUV precisely with its smaller SUV size, 5 seats, and a decent amount of cargo space. However, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan underwent a redesign since its 2017 model. Although the 2018 VW Tiguan is still classified as a compact SUV, it has increased its seating capacity to 7 and retained the same amount of cargo space! Let's see how it compares to its rivals now! It's the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Chevy Equinox!
