The 2022 Ford Escape is one compact SUV that deserves the appreciation that it gets from car buyers out there. It oozes good points in terms of gas mileage, and scores high when it comes to cargo and cabin space. The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan, on the other hand, boasts of an appealing cabin matched by a remarkable cargo hold. Does that mean then you should choose it as a better option over the Ford? Wait until you read this comparison before you make the final decision.

Design & Style

The 2022 Ford Escape wins the battle when it comes to cargo hold, even if both promise a large space in that arena. This is for the reason that the Tiguan can only hold 33 cubic feet at that area, while the Escape is blessed with 38.7 cubic feet for its standard configuration.

Both rides are gifted with soft-touch surfaces inside. They are also built using the best-quality materials for their class. The Escape gains points because the car with the five-seating capacity leaves enough room for passengers to move about even during longer trips. The Tiguan that has three rows and promises to sit seven passengers can only accommodate kids at the third row. There is even a rear seat sliding capability in the Ford Escape thus making it really better than the Volkswagen Tiguan in this aspect.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Ford Escape may be using a 4.2-inch display for its SYNC infotainment system, but that does not mean you cannot settle for that. Even if you do not favor that base setup, there is an option to upgrade to an eight-inch touch screen setup paired with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. It also offers safety features like rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitoring, and pedestrian detection.

The Tiguan uses a 6.5-inch touch screen but it is notable that the steering wheel buttons are too sensitive to the touch, thus causing the driver to get distracted during the trip. It has safety aids like those found in the Ford but misses out on lane departure warning and lane keep assist.


The 2022 Ford Escape is gifted with a three-cylinder engine that is capable of registering up to 181 horsepower. This is definitely better than the four-cylinder engine in the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan that only rates 1847 horsepower. You will feel the sluggish turn in the Tiguan once you step on the brakes.

The Bottom Line

The only aspect with which the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan wins over the 2022 Ford Escape is the fact that it is gifted with a larger infotainment display. Without that, it won't be even close to winning this battle.
