2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Mazda CX-5: Choosing the Right Model for You

There are several options for compact SUV buyers and it can be difficult to know where to start if we want a spacious vehicle. The compact SUV niche is one of the most popular in Canada, and there are plenty of SUVs available to you. To find our way through all of the models on the market, we must start by establishing our needs and our priorities.


If driving pleasure is important to you, as is versatility and luxury, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a great option. Just as sporty and fun as the 2020 Mazda CX-5, the Volkswagen has a lot more cargo space, more power under the hood and exclusive technologies that add a lot of luxury to the Tiguan. Let’s take a closer look.


Much more trunk and cabin space for the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan


The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan has the advantage over the Mazda CX-5 in terms of space, no matter how you compare and where you look. The Tiguan has 1,065 liters of trunk space compared to 875 liters for the 2020 Mazda CX-5. The difference is noticeable, especially when we have a lot of things to transport. The Tiguan increased its overall length by more than 10 inches when it was last redesigned, and this translates into a much more welcoming interior.


While the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is considered by experts to be one of the smallest SUVs in the segment, the Tiguan is among the largest, which means lots of room for your passengers and their luggage. It is even possible to add a third row of seats in the Tiguan to carry 7 passengers. There is not enough room in the CX-5 to do this.


Under the hood, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan gets a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine developing 184 horsepower and 220 lb-ft of torque, which translates into very dynamic accelerations. The Tiguan offers the most efficient production engine in the compact SUV segment. Although the CX-5 is also powerful with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, it cannot compete with the Tiguan in terms of performance. If you want similar performance in the 2020 CX-5, you have to opt for a much more expensive model.
