Performance Capabilities

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

While both of these crossovers are offered with the confidence-inducing performance of all-wheel drive, the Tiguan gets the special performance of 4MOTION® AWD, as well as a variety of different drive modes for difficult winter drives in Lowell and Haverill, including:

  • Snow Mode
  • On-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Custom

The Mazda CX-5 isn’t offered with those mode features and comes up short on performance. The turbocharged inline-four engine is good for 221 lb-ft of torque, which is noticably more than the four-cylinder engine on the CX-5, which only makes 185 lb-ft of torque.

Warranty Coverage

Buying a car also means paying for peace of mind down the road. The VW Tiguan gets you more of that with better manufacturer-backed warranty coverage:

  • VW Tiguan – The basic warranty and drivetrain warranty on a 2018 Tiguan are both made to last, protecting your vehicle for a generous six years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Mazda CX-5 – The Mazda CX-5’s basic warranty runs out after just three years or 36,000 miles, and the drivetrain warranty lasts for just five years or 60,000 miles.
