SUV drivers in Devon, Wayne, and Paoli rely on their vehicles to be powerful, spacious, and, above all, safe. So, when you're looking for a new vehicle, you should start with the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2018 Chevy Equinox.

These two vehicles offer all of these capabilities and more. To help you decide which is a better fit for your lifestyle, we've put together this comparison. Read ahead to learn how the Tiguan and the Equinox stack up when it comes to performance, cargo, and safety!

Tiguan vs Equinox: Performance Specifications

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comes standardly equipped with a 2.0-L turbocharged TSIÒ 4-cylinder engine that puts out an impressive 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Chevy Equinox's slightly smaller 1.5-L 4-cylinder engine won't give you quite as much power, unfortunately, as it only puts out 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

Additionally, while you'll be able to enjoy available all-wheel drive capability in both vehicles, the Tiguan takes it to another level with 4MOTIONÒ all-wheel technology. Choose between four different modes (Snow Mode, On-Road Mode, Off-Road Mode, and Off-Road Custom) and this system will smartly adapt to give you the best power distribution and traction optimization.

Tiguan vs Equinox: Interior Passenger & Cargo Space

When you're adding an SUV to the family, that's something you really have to consider - the family. You won't have anything to worry about in the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan with its standard seating of seven. Pack in the whole family or choose to utilize the 65.7 cubic feet maximum cargo room it has to offer when all five rear seats are down.

As for the 2018 Chevy Equinox, not only will you have just five total seats no matter which trim level you choose, you will also only have 63.5 cubic feet of packing room when all three rear seats are down.

Tiguan vs Equinox: Advanced Safety

Safety is imperative no matter what or who you decide to pack into your SUV. That's why both the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2018 Chevy Equinox offer a variety of impressive safety features such as available Blind Spot Monitoring, Park Assist, Forward Collision Warning, and Autonomous Emergency Braking.

The latter two features to work together to prevent forward collision. Forward Collision Warning lets you know when you might collide with something in front of you and if you don't have time to react the Autonomous Emergency Braking feature will step in to help.

One safety feature you'll miss out on in the Equinox, though, is the Intelligent Crash Response System. If you should ever find yourself in the aftermath of a collision, you can count on this feature to automatically unlock the doors, turn on the hazard lights, and turn off the fuel pump.
