The Honda CR-V and What It Lacks

The Honda CR-V is a top competitor with the Tiguan and its quality is a testiment to that. It has a spacious cargo area, a stylish interior and a strong fuel economy that will keep you away from the fuel pump longer. Although, it does lack in a few key aspects compared to the Volkswagen Tiguan.

The CR-V does not have a third-row option, like the Volkswagen Tiguan, which means that White Plains families are limited in their seating. While the Tiguan boasts a large touchscreen, Apple CarPlay ™ and Android Auto ™, the Honda CR-V offers similar but more lackluster features. These standard features include:

  • 5-Inch Display Screen
  • BlueTooth ® Connectivity
  • a USB Port
  • 4-Speaker Sound System

Some drivers may point to the lower cost of the Honda CR-V as an advantage but this comparison makes it clear that the added cost of a Volkswagen Tiguan is due to their superior interior technology features. The Honda CR-V does have Apple CarPlay ™ and Android Auto ™ as available features, but not standard.

Both SUV options offer a range of advanced available technology features but the Honda CR-V still lacks compared to the Tiguan. It has:

  • 7-Inch Touchscreen Infotainment System
  • Moonroof
  • 9-Speaker Premium Audio System
  • Apple CarPlay ™
  • Android Auto ™

The available touchscreen on the Volkswagen Tiguan is an inch larger than the Honda CR-V option. Also, the Honda CR-V doesn't offer a digital gauge cluster option while the Tiguan does. It even has a brand name audio system that is known for its sound quality.
