2022 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2022 Mazda CX-5: The Tiguan is Better for Your Family

A compact SUV is a perfect compromise between a car and a family-oriented vehicle. At VW, we think that driving dynamics can go hand in hand with space, technologies and versatility. But not all manufacturers think like that, that’s why the Tiguan is the best choice in its category.

Here, we compare the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan with the 2022 Mazda CX-5.

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan is more advanced, and offers more style

Enhanced driving dynamics have always been a key facet of Volkswagen vehicles. That’s why the 2022 Tiguan is powered by a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder unit that deploys 184 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. This is much more torque than the CX-5’s base engine. It channels the power to an 8-speed transmission, which offers more precision than the Mazda CX-5’s old 6-speed unit.

Every Tiguan is equipped with VW’s advanced 4MOTION AWD system, which is much more advanced than the CX-5’s i-Activ system, letting drivers take advantage of more driving modes and better performance on Canada’s changing weather conditions.

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan also lets owners express their style preferences through the R-Line package, which comes with signature wheels, a unique steering wheel and many other accents inside and out.

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan offers more space

Even if it is categorized as “compact,” the Tiguan delivers a maximum amount of space for passengers and cargo. Thanks to an innovative design it can sit up to seven passengers with an optional third row, letting larger families optimize their transport needs without having to upgrade to a midsize SUV. The Mazda CX-5 unfortunately doesn’t have this type of option and is limited to five passengers.

When the rear seating is folded, Tiguan owners have up to 2,081 litres at your disposal.
