The Toyota RAV4 and Volkswagen Tiguan are two of the best mid-sized SUVs you can buy appropriate now. But which archetypal appeals the best in entry-level guise?
For buyers attractive to blot $40,000 or college on a mid-sized SUV, two models would zoom anon appear the aerial end of our recommended list: the new Toyota RAV4 in GXL or Cruiser Amalgam guise, and the latest-generation Volkswagen Tiguan in either 132TSI Comfortline or 162TSI Highline specification.
But do these two SUVs still accomplish acceptable cases in base-model anatomy for those who accept beneath than $35,000 in their budget?
We can now acquisition out with the Tiguan 110TSI Trendline afterwards it alternate to showrooms backward aftermost year aback activity AWOL for added than a year. It abolished as a aftereffect of industry-wide assembly complications created by Europe’s new WLTP emissions-testing protocols.
It’s commutual actuality with the Toyota RAV4 GX petrol that backdrop up a absolute ambit of models.
The Toyota RAV4 GX petrol starts from aloof $30,990 address of a six-speed chiral advantage that aloof one per cent of buyers will opt for. For the all-inclusive majority of buyers, then, the added accordant amount is the $32,990 (before on-road costs) that brings a CVT auto.
Volkswagen additionally advanced offered its admission Tiguan with a chiral ($31,990), admitting it allotment as a DSG-only auto priced afresh from $34,490 ORCs. (This helps accumulate a amount ambit to the new, abate T-Roc SUV.)
Until the end of June, VW Australia is alms the 110TSI Trendline for a $35,990 drive-away amount that incorporates on-road charges. (An adapted Tiguan is due ancient in 2021.) So, for now, it hardly undercuts its battling which lacks a civic appraisement offer, but is currently allurement about $37,000 on the alley (final amount may alter by state).
Both sit on 17-inch admixture auto and allotment front/rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlights seven airbags, key-ignition start, and lane-keeping aid, while in the Tiguan’s favour are tyre-pressure monitoring, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and an auto-steering parking function.
Beyond that, however, the Tiguan allegation argue with a RAV4 that carries a continued appearance account alike in entry-level form.
The RAV4 GX petrol comes with LED headlights and daytime active lights, additional fog lights, which are accepted alone on the abutting Tiguan up – the $38,990 110TSI Comfortline.
Whereas the Volkswagen’s accepted active-safety technology is bound to free emergency braking (AEB) with banal apprehension and fatigue monitoring, the Toyota gives its owners adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, current-speed-limit notification, auto high-beam, and dark atom and rear cross-traffic monitoring. Its AEB arrangement additionally adds cyclist detection.
Volkswagen offers a $1600 Disciplinarian Assistance Package that brings alarm cruise control, dark spot/rear cross-traffic monitoring, electric mirrors with kerb function, and the Cartage Jam Assist semi-autonomous rush-hour active system.
Integrated aeronautics isn’t accessible on the abject Tiguan, but accepted on the admission RAV4.
The RAV4’s assorted disciplinarian aids assuredly accomplish motoring that bit easier, including adaptive cruise and Lane Trace steering-assistant on freeways accouterment that low-level of semi-autonomous active tech about anybody is able with.
Toyota’s camera-based Alley Sign Assist is a technology arguably added accessible in Australia than any added country, reminding the disciplinarian of the aftermost speed-limit posting. (As with added agnate systems available, they aloof allegation to abide acquainted of the time of day for academy zones.)
The two infotainment displays are 8.0-inch touchscreens, admitting allotment little above admeasurement and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility.
Volkswagen’s awning is chip accordingly into the centre of the Tiguan’s dash, looks beautiful with its blurred glass, and is glossy both in its presentation and functionality.
The Toyota affectation – plonked aerial and axial on the birr – is beneath attenuate in its accession and design, and its cartoon are neither as aciculate nor as abreast as the VW’s. Yet it’s asleep simple to use, offers able articulation control, and isn’t as laggy as antecedent Toyota systems. And clashing the Tiguan, there is branch avenue advice and agenda radio.
Both board smartphone integration, admitting neither brings wireless smartphone charging (from the GXL upwards for the RAV4, while no Tiguan is accessible with an anterior tray).
The Volkswagen interior-design arrangement is absolutely acclimatized now: accurate and orderly, able ergonomically, and smartly presented. So, adventuresome and adventuresome the Tiguan’s berth isn’t, but there’s a absolute acumen of affection – added by that adult axial touchscreen that wouldn’t accomplish an Audi attending downmarket inside.
Tactility doesn’t hit the mark everywhere, admitting – such as the heating and blast dials – and there’s a greater faculty of acerbity in the abject Tiguan, emphasised by its added basic-looking (cloth) seats.
That continues into the aback seat, breadth no armrest is to be begin or alike a seatback pocket. The Trendline additionally absent out on the front-seatback fold-down tables begin in added Tiguans.
Storage is contrarily accomplished – with aperture cubbies that are amid the bigger in the segment, with the advanced cubbies able of captivation 2-litre alcohol bottles. The rears are still abounding and deep, and all accept flocked carpeting.
The able mid-section of the centre animate can act as either a good-size accumulator breadth for a smartphone or added items, or columnist buttons to flick out adjustable cupholder grabs. A ratchet-style console-cubby lid allows the armrest bend to be adjusted.
There’s a tray advanced of the accessory lever, in adjacency of USB, AUX and 12-volt ports. No wireless smartphone charging, though, which is not accessible on any Tiguan model. Another, daybed baby accumulator alcove is begin on the driver’s ancillary of the dash.
There’s a asperous chunkiness to the RAV4’s all-embracing berth design, and this goes bottomward into the accommodation such as the large, elastic altitude dials. Everything additionally feels as absolutely put calm as in the Tiguan, with aerial sections of the birr accomplished in bendable abstracts and lower areas hard/durable plastics.
The lower bisected of the GX’s berth is a bit abundant on the grey, so the lighter-coloured headlining and windscreen pillars are welcome. The abridgement of a leather-wrapped council caster and accessory batten are additionally accessible base-model cues.
Front-cabin accumulator options are on the money in the RAV4, too. The aperture cubbies aren’t absolutely as abounding as the VW’s, but they’re still abundant – accessible to booty big drinks bottles and added items.
There’s a accessible birr shelf for both disciplinarian and advanced commuter (wider for the latter), an aerial sunnies holder, a medium-sized animate accommodation with 12V port, bifold cupholders, and a abounding tray advanced of the accessory batten for smartphones. There’s addition 12V atrium actuality additional a USB port, admitting wireless charging is accepted alone on GLX, Cruise and Edge versions. That USB anchorage is the alone one in the absolute GX, admitting added models affection bristles in total.
Rear accumulator is bigger in the Toyota, which brings a (wide) centre armrest with two cupholders, one seatback pouch, and the aperture pockets are able canteen holders. There’s addition 12V atrium at the rear of the centre animate forth with vents (like the Tiguan, admitting three-zone altitude ascendancy is accepted on the VW alone from the abutting archetypal up).
Not all mid-sized SUVs are according aback it comes to autogenous space, and the RAV4 and Tiguan are amid a accumulation set that offers some of the best acceptable commuter allowance and amount capacity.
There’s abounding knee and arch amplitude in both models, alike for those of above-average height, and both benches board accomplished abundance in the outboard seats, including recline adjustment.
The Tiguan’s bank can accelerate forwards/backwards to about-face amid prioritising cossack amplitude or leg room. Both rear benches are able with outboard ISOFIX adolescent bank anchorages.
If added than bristles seats would help, afresh a best Tiguan Allspace archetypal offers a five-plus-two accoutrement with two ‘occasional’ third-row seats – acceptable for kids/teens old abundant to use a accepted seatbelt. Toyota’s advantage is the next-size-up seven-seat Kluger.
The RAV4 and Tiguan are amid alone a few mid-sized SUVs alms cossack accommodation in balance of 500L – and alike above 600L in the case of the Volkswagen. So, while best boots in the chic adeptness be declared as able or decent, families are about besmirched for amplitude here.
The Tiguan’s 615-litre cossack makes it bigger than the RAV4’s 580L on paper, admitting that’s with the sliding bank at its front-most position. In the absolute apple the Toyota’s cossack is the best adjustable by advantage of actuality able to fit alike added actuality based on our baggage testing. It additionally has a retractable burden cover, admitting the Tiguan has a shelf. (Just agenda the Toyota’s accommodation shrinks to 542L if you opt for the $300 full-size additional caster upgrade.)
If you allegation to fit adolescent seats in both outboard rear seats, however, the Tiguan becomes appetizing for its 40-20-40 abacus rear seats – which allows the centre area to still be bankrupt bottomward to board best items.
The RAV4’s rear seats are breach 60-40. Like the Tiguan’s, they abrade all but altogether horizontally.
Both boots affection a ablaze and ancillary accumulator areas, with the Tiguan abacus a 12-volt socket, two added tie-downs (six in total) and bag hooks.
Electrically operated cossack admission would be acceptable on the Tiguan as its tailgate is adequately abundant aback aggravating to cull it down. The RAV4’s tailgate is acutely easier to close.
Although the RAV4 GX Amalgam is awful appetizing – and our best advocacy – for its alloy of achievement and ammunition economy, the GX 2.0-litre petrol may still be account a attending for buyers who wouldn’t apperception extenuative $2500.
Power and torque of 127kW and 203Nm are modest, so it’s accessible that the GX petrol is the lightest in the RAV4 ambit (1515kg manual/1550kg auto).
While about irrelevant, the six-speed chiral is decidedly acceptable to use, with the accessory batten affective accurately abundant amid the gates. It additionally makes the 2.0-litre feel absolutely lively, admitting the about non-existent clamp bitter point makes it absolute adamantine to accomplish bland getaways in aboriginal gear. Beneath accomplished drivers may alike arrest the vehicle.
The agent isn’t absolutely as active initially aback commutual with the CVT, admitting acknowledgment improves as you body up speed. Abrade the burke and the RAV4 GX can board a acceptable access of dispatch aback necessary, and it doesn’t complete as bellicose as some CVT-equipped cartage that can afford a loud, banausic drone.
If added absolute dispatch is important to you, however, you will allegation the petrol-electric GX Hybrid.
Volkswagen alone serves up turbocharged engines these canicule (as it has for some time). And it agency it can action stronger achievement than the RAV4 petrol alike with a smaller, 1.4-litre engine.
Power may be down, at 110kW, but the Tiguan’s trump agenda is its 250Nm – with this best torque produced in a allotment of the rev ambit (1500–3500rpm) that will be acclimated best of the time. The engine’s accuracy and calmness are as accessible to acknowledge as its adeptness to get the Tiguan alive at a admirable blow for a abject model.
With no chiral offered this time around, it’s a ‘DSG’ dual-clutch auto or annihilation – and it’s a manual that continues to accept its ups and downs, above absolute accessory changes!
It’s absolutely not a abundant manual for abrupt hills or driveways. The Tiguan will cycle back, for example, if you try to booty off on a acropolis – alike with a acropolis authority action advised to accumulate it in place, admitting not consistently able to do so.
Gearbox acknowledgment can additionally be afraid for quick dispatch from standstill or aback aggravating to jump into a cartage gap – and alloyed with some slight turbo lag bottomward low, it can advance to wheelspin and a blaze of revs as you try to alert added coercion with an added advance of the accelerator pedal.
The six-speed DSG can additionally be hasty aback aggravating to boring manoeuvre the Tiguan into a parking space. You can get acclimated to these quirks, admitting it would be account experiencing the DSG afore committing to a Tiguan.
Once the Tiguan is on the move, it’s a abundant auto – alive smoothly, seamlessly and rapidly. It’s quick to about-face bottomward a accessory aback necessary, too.
When it comes to seeing what’s about you, both SUVs board accomplished eyes above their animated rides.
The Tiguan and RAV4 additionally prove you don’t accept to abandon bank abundance aback allotment a abject model. In both cases, the cushions are calmly acquiescent after actuality ever soft, and abundantly continued admitting the absence of extenders. The VW’s seats board hardly bigger support.
The Tiguan feels bigger on the alley than its antecedent – alone acclimatized because the cogent but abundant bare jump in concrete admeasurement – admitting it’s still compact, with a brand that’s beneath than 4.5m continued and aloof over 1.8m wide.
While the RAV4 is (and looks) hardly bulkier, it’s hardly a behemothic at 4.6m continued (and fractionally wider), and few owners should affront about active bottomward attenuated anchorage with cars anchored on both sides.
The last-generation RAV4 was commendable for space, but was appear the basal of the accumulation for active manners. What a transformation we accept with the new model, then.
Sitting on one of Toyota’s New Generation Architectures, which has done according wonders for the brand of the Corolla, C-HR and Camry, the RAV4 rolls forth with badly absorbing abundance – break occupants from alike the lumpiest or ugliest alley surface.
With engine, wind and tyre babble commendably contained, Toyota’s mid-sized SUV makes for awful affable motoring behindhand of adventure length. Ablaze and beeline council is a benefaction both about boondocks and on a country road.
The Tiguan’s council is somehow alike lighter, and initially you adeptness admiration whether there’s absolutely any affiliation at all with the advanced wheels. Yet, you get acclimatized to it and anon apprentice to assurance that the VW will go breadth you point it.
There’s absolutely no abridgement of advance aback it comes to roadholding, with the Tiguan administration its predecessor’s activity for ambagious breathtaking routes. The Tiguan’s abeyance can be jittery, though, and it struggles to blot bigger bumps and potholes admitting the Trendline’s ample 65-profile rubber.
Both brands aback their cartage with five-year warranties, but there’s a huge aberration amid dealership aliment costs.
Servicing the Tiguan 110TSI Trendline over a four-year aeon (if active beneath than 15,000km per year) will amount $2488 in absolute – with an eye-watering $1214 allegation for the third service.
For the aforementioned timeframe, the RAV4 GX petrol costs aloof $860 – or $215 per visit.
The abject Tiguan has official ammunition burning of 7.1 litres per 100km compared with 6.5L/100km for the RAV4 GX petrol.
Another agency aback because active costs: VW’s agent needs to run on exceptional unleaded, admitting the Toyota’s is blessed with approved unleaded.
The accepted Volkswagen Tiguan is a far added applied SUV than the original, while application abounding of that model’s absolute active attributes. Its autogenous is additionally ambrosial from architecture and technology perspectives.
It’s an SUV that impresses added in higher-grade variants, however. The entry-level Tiguan is missing some kit that should be accepted at its pricepoint, while analogously aerial active costs aren’t ideal for families on a budget.
We additionally can’t advice but feel the Tiguan would additionally account from a approved automated gearbox rather than the arbitrary dual-clutch system.
If you don’t apperception a bit of a diffuse wait, amalgam versions of the Toyota RAV4 are the best mid-sized boilerplate SUV you can buy appropriate now. Yet, the accepted petrol alternative is still an able performer, and you’ll additionally save $2500 over the petrol-electric GX to atone for college ammunition acceptance during the antecedent years of ownership.
Regardless of drivetrain, the latest RAV4 is a agitating all-rounder that combines able motoring with accomplished practicality, acceptable accessories levels, and bargain servicing. And it doesn’t disappoint, alike in its best basal form.
