2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

Serving Troy, MI

The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is an all-new model with magnetic appeal. This is a two-row crossover SUV that is designed to be a sportier version of the popular Atlas. Before deciding if the Atlas Cross Sport is the right crossover for your next purchase, you need to know how it compares to other popular models. Like the Atlas Cross Sport, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a midsize crossover SUV. The Tiguan was released in 2007, and the 2020 model year benefits from a gorgeous facelift. Are you ready to learn more about these Volkswagen crossover models?


At the base level, the 2020 Tiguan is slightly more affordable than the Atlas Cross Sport. The Tiguan is powered by the same 2.0-liter turbo engine across all of its trims. This engine produces 184 horsepower. Several driving modes and 4MOTION all-wheel drive are standard. In comparison, the Atlas Cross Sport is offered with two powertrains. The 2.0-liter engine gives you 235 horsepower when it is powered by premium gasoline. The top engine is a V6, 3.6-liter engine that produces 276 horsepower, and that can tow up to 5,000 pounds. It has the same driving modes and drivetrain as the Tiguan is equipped with.


Throughout the exterior, these sibling models have a few common traits. For example, they both have a linear grille design that wraps confidently across the front end. Their grilles are integrated with their LED headlights. The Tiguan is a taller vehicle with raised roof rails, hands-free liftgate functionality, dual exhaust tips, fog lamps, and rounded body molding over the wheel wells. The Atlas Cross Sport has a sleeker look with steady tapering down the roof. It also has molded fenders with a cubic feel across the wheel wells.


These two Volkswagen models carry many of the same technologies and features, but their interior designs are different. For example, they both have a color display screen embedded in the center stack. This screen provides button and knob controls for the sound system, smart device integration, navigation system, and more. In the Tiguan, the screen is mounted under two air vents. In the Atlas Cross Sport, it is placed at the top of the center stack between the air vents.
