Serving Troy, MI

Finding a crossover SUV that satisfies all of your functional needs and that will continue to impress you across many miles is easier said than done. Everything requires your full attention - from passenger space and technologies to capabilities and style. As you compare the many compact crossover SUVs that are currently on the market, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2020 Jeep Cherokee could quickly catch your eye.


The Tiguan exterior has a distinctly linear theme, and its long, horizontal lines are balanced by defined wheel fenders and a flowing profile. The linear theme is dominant through the chrome grille, which is perfectly integrated with the LED headlights. The 2020 Tiguan also has raised roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, and foglamps. The Jeep Cherokee has been a mainstay on Troy’s roads for decades, so a search for a crossover would not be complete without giving it a closer look. The Cherokee’s current body style was introduced in 2014 and has only been mildly updated since that time. It has lower-body molding, raised roof rails, and LED lighting.


With an available third row of seats and easy folding throughout the second and third rows, the 2020 Tiguan has a functional interior. Its many interior technologies include a digital cockpit, an 8-inch display screen with touch and rotary knob controls, wireless charging, and more. The Cherokee is a two-row SUV with folding seats in the back row. The dashboard is molded with a protruding center stack. This crossover’s features include a dual-zone climate control system, heated seats, a sound system, a digital display screen, and other items.


Passenger safety in the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is promoted through a series of assistive technologies. These are lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, high beam control, side assist, and others. The Jeep Cherokee’s assistive safety features are available in select trims. These include a blind spot monitor, electronic stability control, active braking, and others.
