2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander

Crossover SUVs are the most popular vehicle platform produced by almost every automaker. This is especially true for the lineup of Volkswagen crossover SUVs for sale or lease at Team Gunther VW. At, or near the top of that roster would have to be the VW Tiguan with its adaptable interior, strong performance scores and long list of standard connectivity technology. A comparison of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander will show buyers several reasons they should be making an appointment with one of our product experts. The 2020 Tiguan is available in two- and three-row seating configurations and offers more standard performance than its Mitsubishi rival. Not coincidentally, independent online reviews have praised the current Tiguan for all the same reasons. Team Gunther VW customers can start the pre-ordering process by calling, 855-660-8226.

When a 2020 VW Tiguan is equipped with front-wheel-drive, it will also have three rows of seats that can hold seven passengers. An owner with a Tiguan full of people will still have 12 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Folding the third row away will open up 33 cubic-feet, with up to 65.7 cubic-feet available when the interior is properly configured. Owners of the 2020 Outlander will have just slightly less cargo volume to use in all three interior configurations. Additionally, the 2020 Tiguan with 4Motion® all-wheel-drive will offer two rows of seats, holding five passengers. Owners of this version will have 37.6 cubic-feet to use with people in the rear seat and a maximum cargo volume of 73.5 cubic-feet. All 2020 Tiguan models have a smartphone-compatible infotainment system. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander doesn’t offer this technology on the base trim.
