Volkswagen Tiguan vs Nissan Rogue: Performance

2019 Volkswagen TiguanSmooth and responsive, each SUV effortlessly maintains their quiet confidence whether wheeling around busy parking lots or taking command of the open highway.

Equipped with a 2.0L TSI® turbocharged engine, the VW Tiguan delivers an impressive 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of road-gripping torque. By comparison, the Rogue relies on a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that tops out at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

The Rogue’s lack of oomph is most noticeable when traveling at highway speeds while the VW Tiguan sails by without issue.

This can partly be attributed to its 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® which employs smart technologies to deliver the perfect level of power where and when it’s needed. Meanwhile, the Rogue relies on an Xtronic® continuously variable transmission which creates nice efficiency, but at the expense of higher performance.

Off-Road Capability

Capable of trekking off the beaten path at a moment’s notice, the VW Tiguan offers an available 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive with four distinct drive modes to match your busy day. Want to take your SUV for a drive on the beach? Choose the Off-Road Custom mode where you can experience the perfect power delivery to tackle just about any terrain.

Likewise, the Rogue offers its own Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive which continuously monitors road conditions to keep you on track. When the system senses a loss of traction, it immediately redirects power to the front or back wheels to keep you steadily on course.

While each delivers comfortable seating for up to five, the VW Tiguan offers an optional third-row seat. When not in use, drivers can easily fold the last row for extra cargo space. Speaking of cargo, both models provide over 35 cubic feet of room behind the second row and come with a convenient power liftgate.

Thanks to the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, you and your passengers can take advantage of a long list of features from Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to the Fender® premium audio system. On the other hand, while the Rogue has many of the same features, you’ll have to upgrade to its higher trim before you can enjoy most of them.

And the Winning Compact SUV Is…

While both SUVs clearly have a lot to offer in terms of performance, space, and technology, it’s obvious the VW Tiguan is the better overall choice for drivers throughout Panama City, Callaway, and Springfield.
