2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Ford Escape

Serving Troy, MI

If you are in the market for a smaller crossover SUV that brings together style, value, and modern features, the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Ford Escape may be at the top of your list. These five-passenger SUVs are priced comparably, but you should not assume that they will give you the same driving experience. Are you ready to identify the unique qualities of these two models?


The Tiguan has a spunky, spirited façade with excellent ground clearance and an upright cabin. Personality lines highlight the hood's curvature, and it stands in bold contrast to the horizontal traits of the grille and side character lines. The Ford Escape’s exterior is mostly smooth with a rolling profile and a drop-down nose. The headlights have a prominent size, and a light ribbon underscores them.


The impressive qualities of the 2020 Tiguan extend inside the cabin. Leather material is available in several beautiful colors across most of the trim options. The unique center stack design angles the AC system’s controls and the color display system at a comfortable viewing angle. Additional features include smart device integration, a push-button ignition, a rotary drive mode selection knob, etc. The Ford Escape for 2020 has cloth or leather seating, as well as a fractured dashboard design. The front of the cabin features three distinct sections of the center stack and two center console sections. A display screen tops the central unit.


If you decide that the Tiguan is the crossover that you want to commit to, you can appreciate its turbocharged, 184-horsepower engine at your leisure. Additional mechanical features in the 2020 Tiguan are several driving modes, all-wheel drive and sport mode with the automatic transmission. An EcoBoost 1.5-liter engine powers the Ford Escape. It is mated to an auto transmission and front-wheel drive.

Our Suburban Volkswagen of Troy team is thrilled to answer your questions about the abilities and features of the Tiguan throughout the 2020 trim line. For further assistance with your Tiguan research, contact us today.
