The exterior of the 2016 Tiguan has sleek horizontal lines and details that stand out against the more traditional and slightly less modern design on the Equinox. While both vehicles are similar in size, the German engineering on the Tiguan gives it a sporty-yet-refined appearance that offers a more obvious movement and style than that of the Equinox. Under the hood, the smaller engine that comes with the Tiguan offers more horsepower and a higher maximum trailer weight, making it more versatile when it comes to towing. The extra horsepower means a quicker acceleration, and with such gorgeous exterior details, its easy to see why you'll turn heads as you speed past the 2016 Equinox. 

Moving to the interior, the classic Volkswagen functionality shows inside the 2016 Tiguan. Its traditional design offers an organized center stack that comes with as many high-tech features as you would like. Great options like a voice-activated navigation system pair perfectly with the standard Bluetooth compatibility and first-row LCD screen inside both the Equinox and the Tiguan. Both crossovers have seating for up to five passengers, but the Tiguan's standard V-Tex Leatherette seating trim, compared to the cloth seats inside the Equinox, offer a feeling of luxury, even at the base trim. If you are looking for a powerful crossover with great interior style and a more modern appearance, the 2016 Tiguan might just be the perfect choice for you.
