Compare the 2017 Subaru Forester to the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan with Research from Subaru Superstore Serving Phoenix, AZ

The market for new small SUV models is quickly becoming one of the most popular in the industry, and that means every manufacturer has their own version. While everyone will tell you that their small SUV is the best, there is a brand that has all the players looking over their shoulder. Subaru continues to take the automotive industry by storm with unprecedented growth. Volkswagen is also a well-known name in the automotive world, but how does the new 2017 Subaru Forester compare to the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan? We looked at the facts in the following comparison. See what we found, then come test drive a new Forester before making a decision at Subaru Superstore.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Design Comparison

While Volkswagen never misses a chance to mention German engineering, the design team behind the new 2017 Subaru Forester shows why no other brand has been growing like Subaru. As you consider your next small SUV, it's likely that the extra space is a big part of what you need. Step inside the new VW Tiguan, and you may find it comes up short with just 95.4 cubic feet to accommodate up to five occupants. The new Subaru Forester, on the other hand, provides plenty of room for comfort and a bit to spare with up to 108.3 cubic feet of passenger space. Extra room for cargo is also a common need behind upgrading to a new small SUV. Where the Volkswagen comes with only 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up, you'll appreciate a cavernous 34.4 cubic feet of cargo room in the back of a new Forester.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Performance Comparison

Whether you're on a grand adventure with the family or coming home from a long day at work, it's nice to know that your next new SUV will have the performance you need when you need it. At the entry level, the VW does have a slight advantage in horsepower, but it is also heavier. Meanwhile, the new Subaru Forester utilizes its renowned BOXER engine to gain better fuel economy and better handling due to the low center of gravity. When it comes to traction in the turns, off the road, or on slick road conditions, you simply can't beat the symmetrical all-wheel drive system found on every new Subaru Forester. On the new VW Tiguan, all-wheel drive is another pricey upgrade. Those looking for the most power, will certainly want to test drive the 250 horsepower turbocharged Subaru Forester XT, which is a lot more power than you'll find in any of the new Tiguan models.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Safety Comparison

When it comes to safety, there simply can be no compromise. While the new 2017 Subaru Forester and the 2017 VW Tiguan are recognized as safe vehicles that share expected features like antilock brakes, airbags, and traction control, there are a couple distinctions to point out. Perhaps the most telling fact is how each of these models faired through NHTSA crash safety testing. Where the new 2017 Subaru Forester earned the top five-star overall safety rating, the VW only managed a four-star rating. In fact, the Tiguan only received three-stars for frontal crash safety which is noticeably less than the new Forester. We think you'll agree that the new Forester is a great example of why Subaru continues to be an industry leader in terms of safety.
