Choosing a crossover means a few things. You want something with some power, with available AWD, and efficiency. The 2021 RAV4 is all those things. It offers more horsepower standard than the Tiguan, a lot more efficiency, and of course, just like the Tiguan, it offers all-wheel drive on offer at every trim level. In the end, with the RAV4, you end up with a sportier crossover that’s far more efficient and still offers the features that you want.
Speaking of features that you want, adaptive cruise control is one of the newest features sweeping the automotive world. It helps reduce highway fatigue by automatically adjusting your speed to match the speed of traffic. If traffic clears or speeds up, your car automatically speeds back up to your desired speed. Toyota has fully embraced this feature, and that’s why it comes standard on every RAV4 model in 2021.
Volkswagen doesn’t have the reputation for making reliable cars, despite what they may want you to think. Though they are trying to change their reputation, the Toyota reputation speaks for itself, and they back their vehicles up with a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty which is significantly higher than what the Tiguan provides.
