Volkswagen has built the 2020 Tiguan in two interior configurations, featuring two or three rows. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 is only available with two rows of seats. Versions of the current VW Tiguan with three rows of seats can hold up to seven passengers and the more traditional two-row version will hold five. The Tiguan with three rows of seats can happen up to 65.7 cubic-feet of cargo volume available. This is very similar to what the 2020 RAV4 can offer when properly configured. However, Team Gunther VW customers who need more cargo volume can choose to lose the third row of seating that will then allow the interior to offer up to 73.5 cubic-feet, a significant advantage over what the RAV4 makes available. Passengers sitting in the first two rows of either 2020 version of the Tiguan or RAV4 will have very similar legroom dimensions.
