These vehicles will satisfy your desire for luxury without breaking the bank. The VW brand provides stiff competition for other vehicles in their class. Let's see how the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan matches up with the 2022 Toyota RAV4.

Interior Design

Volkswagen Tiguan

The weather in Riverhead, NY, can be unpredictable. But with the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan, you'll always be prepared to handle uncertainty. At the standard level, the Volkswagen Tiguan provides interior features like heated front seats, cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped gearshift knob, and a carpeted cargo area with tie-down hooks. But upgrades are plenteous.

Heated and ventilated seats are thoughtful additions to the interior cabin. The Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control is designed to provide the perfect riding conditions for each passenger. V-Tex leatherette surfaces add finishing touches to an aura of elegance for your cabin.

The base trim features cloth seats and a mixture of soft-touch surfaces and plastic. Single-zone climate control is also available at the standard level. Upgrades include faux-leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a stitched/padded dashboard.

Safety is a primary concern for the Volkswagen brand. Standard features include a backup camera, intelligent crash response system, automatic post-collision braking, and six stability-enhancing systems.

But, in the unfortunate case of collision, the Volkswagen Tiguan is ready to keep you and your travelers safe. The VW Tiguan is designed with front and rear crumple zones to help absorb crash energy.
