Finding the right vehicle for your family isn’t always easy. That’s why we’ve gone ahead and put together a comparison of two popular family vehicles — the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2019 Nissan Rogue. Here, we look at their performance, interior space, and warranty to help you decide which one will be a better option for your family.


Power is important in any vehicle, which is why you should consider it when you’re purchasing your next crossover. While both the Tiguan and the Rogue offer a single engine option, the Tiguan’s option is much more appealing than its competitor. The Volkswagen model comes with a 2.0-liter TSI® engine that produces 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. This has a lot more kick than the Rogue’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine’s 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

The Tiguan can also tow more than the Rogue, offering up to 1,500 pounds while the Rogue only tows up to 1,102 pounds.

Interior Space

If you want the option of carrying more passengers in your vehicle, then the Tiguan is the better option. This vehicle can seat either five or seven passengers depending on the model you choose, since it has the option of adding a third row of seats. The Rogue doesn’t have this option, which means it can only seat five passengers. The Rogue also has less cargo volume than the five-seater Tiguan, offering a maximum 70 cubic feet compared to the Tiguan’s 73.5 cubic feet.


When you purchase a new vehicle, it will come with a warranty that helps cover the cost of any potential issues down the line. With the Tiguan, this is a 6-year/72,000-mile warranty, which is double the length and distance of the Rogue’s 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. This means that you will have peace of mind for longer — and you’ll likely have to pay less on your Tiguan’s routine maintenance and any repairs your vehicle may need.
