If you live around Irvine, Garden Grove, or San Juan Capistrano, you’re probably looking for an SUV that allows you to pursue your adventures. After all, people don’t live in Southern California to just stay indoors all day, right?
That’s precisely why our team at Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine wrote this comparison between the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2019 Honda CR-V. We wanted to introduce our loyal customers to two great vehicles that could mesh with their lifestyles.

Engine Power: Volkswagen Tiguan vs Honda CR-V
The Volkswagen Tiguan comes equipped with a standard 2.0L turbocharged engine. In other words, it comes equipped with a standard punch of power.
This incredible engine delivers up to 184 horsepower and up to 221 lb-ft of torque. With an 8-speed automatic transmission equipped with Tiptronic®, you can shift manually to take more control of your driving experience.
On the other hand, the Honda CR-V just can’t compete. Its standard inline 4-cylinder engine is pretty impressive with its ability to deliver 184 horsepower, but it falls short with its 180 lb-ft of torque capability.
Driving in various weather and road conditions is easy with an available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive. This feature allows you to seamlessly switch between conditions and even offers a customizable off-road setting. Unfortunately, the CR-V does not offer a variable driving system, but does well with its Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, which activates automatically to help retain traction and turning stability.
Ample Cabin Space & Comfort
When it comes to SUVs, this is a crucial question: How much passenger space do the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and the Honda CR-V really offer? Let’s find out!
The Volkswagen Tiguan gives you 123.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, so everybody will have plenty of room to stretch out and relax. With 55.9 inches of shoulder room for your passengers, there’s no need to worry about utilizing the maximum seating capacity.
Unfortunately, in the Honda CR-V, some might feel a little cramped. Rear passengers get the slightly cramped 55.6 inches of shoulder room. The overall cabin measures out to 105.9 cubic feet of passenger space.
The Volkswagen Tiguan has an available V-Tex leatherette fabric. It looks like leather but is easier to maintain, and is both stylish and comfortable. Another fantastic feature, especially for starry nights and blue skies, is the panoramic sunroof that floats above almost the entire cabin. The CR-V equivalent leather seating can’t compare to the ease, style, and comfort of the V-Tex leatherette seating surface.
