2022 VW Tiguan vs. 2022 Chevrolet Equinox 

The Tiguan has been a largely popular addition to the compact SUV market since its initial release. Reliable performance and a modernized interior have given Volkswagen fans across Colorado plenty of reasons to get excited with each new version of the vehicle. With the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan, today’s Denver Metro drivers can expect the most comprehensive version of the compact SUV yet. The ride it offers drivers and other passengers compares favorably to competition such as the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox 


With its turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine equipped, the 2022 VW Tiguan gets around the Denver Metro region with plenty of exciting performance. Generating 184 horsepower and sending it through the responsive Tiptronic® eight-speed automatic transmission, the compact SUV delivers a satisfying ride for everyone in the vehicle. Comparatively, the 2022 Chevy Equinox comes equipped with a smaller 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This powertrain only offers 170 horsepower and leaves much to be desired for drivers. A six-speed automatic transmission is paired with the Chevrolet’s engine. FWD is the drivetrain that both compact SUVs come equipped with as the standard option. AWD is available on both vehicles as well if drivers want to have even greater all-weather handling.  

Interior Features

Customers looking for a compact SUV that can still easily handle hauling large grocery runs or other shopping trips will find that the Tiguan is perfectly geared up to suit their needs. Baseline Tiguan vehicles offer greater personalized comfort compared to the Equinox thanks to their standard six-way adjustable front seating compared to the four-way seating in the base Equinox. A welcome comfort feature that both SUVs offer in every model is heated functionality in the front seating. Wi-Fi® hotspots are also integrated into both compact SUVs. Compatible smartphones can connect through either Bluetooth®, Android Auto, or Apple CarPlay with both infotainment systems to give plenty of interactivity and personalized content.  

Safety Features 

While both vehicles offer drivers plenty of assistance on the road, the Tiguan offers standard features that the Equinox does not. This includes both Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring systems. Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Pedestrian Detection come equipped standard on both vehicles to help drivers react to the road in front of them. Handling capabilities are further enhanced through implementations such as Electronic Stability Control to cater to the ever-changing driving landscape Colorado drivers routinely find themselves navigating.
