Four Reasons Why Escondido, CA Drivers Should Choose the VW Tiguan Over the Hyundai Tucson

Currently in its second generation, the popular Volkswagen Tiguan first debuted back in 2007. Since then, it has gone on to become one of the carmaker's most sought-after models, and a fan favorite for our customers here at Mossy Volkswagen. Our Auto Park Way South dealership is stocked with all the latest options from the VW lineup, including the new, 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan, and we want to help you choose the best fit for your needs.

The 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan is a versatile and flexible SUV that San Marcos, CA and Poway, CA drivers can easily personalize to suit their personality and the needs of their families. It comes standard with two rows of seats and accommodations for five people, but an optional third row means it can seat up to seven people for drivers who need more space.

To be sure, the 2023 Tiguan is a well-equipped and topnotch option for our local families. But we know that shopping for a stylish SUV in the Escondido area can be confusing and lead you to an array of models that seem to have a lot in common. To illustrate why ours is the better choice over competing SUVs, we've taken a closer look at it next to the 2023 Hyundai Tucson. Read on to learn more.

2023 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2023 Hyundai Tucson

Four doors, a rear liftgate to access the cargo area, and similar lengths and wheelbase widths make the VW Tiguan and the Hyundai Tucson appear, at lease on the surface, to have a lot in common. But when you dive in a little deeper, as we have, you'll discover a number of key areas that set the Tiguan apart. To simplify your shopping experience, we've highlighted four areas where our SUV tops the competition, listed for you here:

Top Four Ways that the VW Tiguan Outshines the Hyundai Tucson

  1. Optional third row and versatility. As mentioned, the 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan is a highly customizable model that allows drivers to choose the right number of seats and the right level of features. This comes from its extensive menu of trims, and also from its available third row, which can be ordered and adds extra seats that can really come in handy in a pinch. The 2023 Hyundai Tucson, on the other hand, offers less versatility and customizations, as it's strictly available in a two-row configuration that seats five people and has no third row available in its lineup.
  2. Standard tech and convenience features. The VW Tiguan lineup of trims kicks things off with a comprehensive list of features that our customers are looking for. These include a standard in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, standard front seats that are heated and height-adjustable, standard heated windshield wiper jet nozzles, and standard heated exterior mirrors. Comparatively, none of these standard amenities come standard with the Hyundai Tucson.
  3. Standard safety tech. Not only does our Tiguan have more standard amenities than the Tucson, but it also comes with more standard safety features as well. Both SUVs have modern driver aids and safety features, but only the Tiguan includes standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert in the list.
  4. Options and available add-on amenities. For drivers who want extra features with the Volkswagen Tiguan, they're available as soon as the base model, which has great optional packages available for personalization. On the other hand, Tucson drivers who want the same level of features will need to move higher up in the trim level lineup, as many sought-after amenities aren't available to add on for entry-level Hyundai models.
