While this SUV comes with everything you need to improve your driving experiences, we understand that you may be looking at other models on the market right now. To help you make a more informed decision, we are highlighting the advantages of choosing the new Volkswagen Tiguan over a popular rival, the new Subaru Forester.

Powertrains and Performance

The new Subaru Forester is highly capable, but it falls short in several ways compared with the new Volkswagen Tiguan. For instance, the new Volkswagen Tiguan near San Jose, CA, comes standard with a peppy 184-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. Under the Subaru Forester's hood sits a less-enthusiastic four-cylinder engine that produces slightly less horsepower. Plus, the Tiguan feels sportier thanks to this higher power and its enjoyable driving dynamics.

Tech Features

Both models come equipped with a long list of advanced tech features, like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. However, the new Forester does not come standard with a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot while the new Tiguan does. With this Wi-Fi hotspot, you and your passengers can ensure your devices stay connected as your out cruising around Santa Clara, CA, in your new Tiguan.
