2021 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

Serving Troy, MI

For more than a decade, the Volkswagen Tiguan has directly competed against the Nissan Rogue, so you may reasonably be wondering how well these models compare to each other today. For 2021, the Tiguan and the Rogue are smaller crossovers that are priced closely at their base levels. However, they have substantial differences that require your attention before you make your final selection.


The 2021 Rogue and the 2021 Tiguan approach styling uniquely. The Tiguan, for example, is designed with long lines that flow through the lower-front fascia, the grille, the headlights, and the sides. The headlights’ linear elements are directly linked to the grille’s bars, and the headlights are also underlined by a row of dazzling LED lights. On the other hand, the 2021 Rogue combines its smoothly molded sides with a bulky front end. Throughout the front end, you will find angles that run in various directions through the grille, air vents, headlights, and other features.


The Tiguan and the Rogue have many similar features inside their cabins, but they also have standout features and styling. A push-button ignition, a heated steering wheel, a digital screen for the instrumentation panel, smart device app integration, auto climate control, and a digital screen for the infotainment system are common in these two models. The 2021 Tiguan also has heated seats, remote accessibility, Bluetooth connectivity, and other equipment. Its smooth interior design elements are in contrast to the stacked elements that run through the Rogue’s front end. This includes a squared-off gear selector and layers throughout the center stack.


The differences between the 2021 Tiguan and the 2021 Rogue continue under the hood. The Tiguan receives 184 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and an automatic eight-speed transmission. Multiple driving modes and 4MOTION all-wheel drive add to its functionality. The Rogue is only available with a standard 2.5-liter engine, front-wheel drive, and a continuously variable transmission. It delivers 181 horsepower to its drivers.
