Subaru Outback vs. VW Tiguan


Why the Subaru Outback is Always in Front of its Less Impressive Crossover Competition

The Subaru Outback has long been considered to be a family-friendly, adventure-loving vehicle that's pretty much in a segment unto itself. However, we understand that our Danbury, Branford, Norwalk, Wallingford and New Haven area customers like to do comparison shopping before taking the plunge into new-crossover ownership. That's why we've gone ahead and pitted the Outback against its similarly styled rival -- the Volkswagen Tiguan-- to show how the Outback's unique design overshadows its more cookie-cutter, less-capable competition.

Check out the results of our evaluation below:

The Subaru Outback versus the Volkswagen Tiguan

  • Outdoor enthusiasts beware -- the Tiguan comes with standard front-wheel drive. The Outback, however, is off-road ready with a standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The Tiguan may look sporty, the Outback is really the only wagon that delivers genuine athletic ability and all-terrain tenacity.

  • Power you people-mover your way with a choice of engines, courtesy of Subaru. The Outback offers both a 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine as well as a potent six-cylinder option. The latter seriously overpowers the Tiguan's only engine currently available, a measly turbo 2.0-liter.

  • If you couldn't already tell from its powertrain, the Outback's priorities lie in safety-conscious fun. This point is further driven home by its standard rook rack rails with integral crossbars as well as its standard LED brake lights -- two options that are not available with the Tiguan.

  • Overall, the Outback is a more accommodating vehicle thanks, in part, to its longer, wider, and lighter design. Its more generous dimensions lend themselves to greater passenger and max cargo volume than that of the Tiguan (by a lot).
