2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2018 Ford Escape

Volkswagen has long been known as a family-friendly brand – that was why it was established more than 80 years ago! However, the ideal family vehicle has transformed from the original Type 1/Beetle to spacious crossovers that can accommodate both people and cargo. In order to meet this ideal, Volkswagen took its compact Tiguan back to the drawing board and transformed it into a bigger and more user-friendly model. Even with its larger dimensions, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan still has plenty of rivals – including the 2018 Ford Escape. We have created a comparison between these two models in order to help you decide which one is right for you.
