2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs Jeep Compass: Engine Specs
While both SUVs are propelled by powerful engines, the one under the hood of the VW Tiguan is able to edge out the one in the Compass. The VW Tiguan is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 184 horsepower. The Jeep Compass has a 2.4L MultiAir® engine with an output of 180 horsepower.
The Volkswagen Tiguan features an abundance of room up front for you and one of your passengers to enjoy. This is made evident by looking at its measurements for front headroom and front shoulder room that come to 39.6 inches and 57 inches, respectively. The Compass is not able to supply as much room up front as its front headroom is 39.2 inches, and the front shoulder room only comes to 56.7 inches.
The VW Tiguan also contains a lot of stowing potential with a maximum cargo capacity of 65.7 cubic feet. The maximum cargo capacity for the Jeep compass falls short at 59.8 cubic feet.
While both the 2019 VW Tiguan and the Jeep Compass are available with a power liftgate, the one in the VW Tiguan is a remote power liftgate that allows you to access it when your hands are full by simply kicking your foot beneath the rear bumper and shuts on its own when you walk away.
Another bit of convenience in the VW Tiguan is its various performance modes that adapt to the various road conditions and terrain that you’re likely to encounter while you’re behind the wheel. These modes are as follows:
- Snow Mode. In Snow Mode, the engine upshifts early in order to remain in a lower RPM range to prevent the wheels from spinning on ice or getting stuck in snow.
- On-Road Mode. This one allows you to choose between four options that enable you to take the SUV’s already comfortable performance up a notch.
- Off-Road Mode. When you’re taking on more challenging terrain, this mode gives you a boost in traction.
- Off-Road Custom. The Off-Road Custom Mode provides you with even more settings and options so you can adjust the ride to fit in even more with your individual sensibilities.
