2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

With so many SUVs on the market, it can be an overwhelming task sorting through all of the available options. You can save hours of unnecessary research by trusting the experts at Maus Nissan North Tampa. We’ve narrowed down the best SUVs down to the 2022 Nissan Rogue and 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan.

2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

Both the Rogue and Tiguan are built for terrain and offer adaptable cargo space and impressive interior features. However, the Nissan Rogue packs more of a punch and adds a bit of “wow” on the inside no matter which seat you’re in.


The Rogue is one of few vehicles to feature Nissan’s brand-new, world-first Variable Compression (VC) Turbo engine which provides optimal power and efficiency everywhere you go at 201 horsepower. The VC Turbo works at optimal efficiency when combined with the Xtronic CVT which reduces internal friction and is built with wider gear ratios for maximum fuel efficiency to give you 30 city and 37 highway miles per gallon. You can further customize your ride with five drive modes: Sport, Off-Road, Snow, Auto, and Eco. Aside from a more intuitive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive which automatically enhances your traction as you drive, the Nissan Rogue also comes with incredible dynamic driving technology to give you the best possible experience such as:

● Intelligent Trace Control

● Active Ride Control

● Hill Start Assist

● Automatic Brake Hold

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a bit short on horsepower at 184 and has a lower MPG rating of 22 city and 29 highway miles. It comes with four drive modes instead of five, and the options aren’t as varied. They include Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom. There’s an Intelligent Crash Response System and an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System which are both great features, but it feels odd having systems designed for after a crash while most vehicles focus on preventative features to keep you from getting into an accident in the first place.

Safety Features

When you drive a Nissan Rogue, you never drive alone. ProPILOT Assist with Navi-Link guides your actions on the road so you can relax as you drive by automatically adapting speed and distance between other vehicles on the road. It’s also able to recognize upcoming off-ramps and speed limit signs. The Rogue itself really does act as a second pilot with its many intelligent capabilities which enhance safety features like Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Intervention, Lane Intervention, Driver Alertness, and more. As far as standard safety features go, the Rogue comes equipped with Nissan’s patented Safety Shield 360 which includes:

● Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

● Rear Automatic Braking

● Blind Spot Warning

● Rear Cross Traffic Alert

● Lane Departure Warning

● High Beam Assist

Ten standard airbags, Zone Body Construction, and an Anti-Lock Braking System are just a few of the many reasons why the 2022 Nissan Rogue was awarded Top Safety Pick+ by IIHS. Even when parking, the Intelligent Around View Monitor gives you a 360-degree view of your surroundings which eliminates much of the guesswork when working your way in and out of tight spots.

The Volkswagen Tiguan comes with a smaller array of safety features called IQ.DRIVE involving some traffic alerts in addition to lane, parking, and light assists.


If you want an SUV created for families in mind, the Nissan Rogue is your best choice as it accommodates everyone in the cabin no matter where they’re seated. The available Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control provides a custom temperature to every part of the vehicle and the Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof makes it so the front and back rows can have control of their own window. The back seat is especially child-friendly with easy access for the parent and expertly-placed lower anchors for car seats. Roll-down sunshades for the rear windows are definitely a welcome plus.

You won’t find anything too fancy in the Volkswagen Tiguan. There’s a maximum cargo capacity of 73.4 cubic feet but the Rogue tops it at 74.1 cubic feet. The Tiguan comes with a Fender audio system, but then again, the Rogue comes with the more desired Bose premium audio system. Also, the Tiguan has dual-zone climate control while the Rogue has a tri-zone system. As you can see, the Rogue is one step ahead of the Tiguan in many aspects.

Bottom Line

In every category, the 2022 Nissan Rogue is ahead of the curve compared to the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan. If you want a powerful and dynamic drive with the best safety features and an accommodating interior for everyone to enjoy, the Rogue does not disappoint.
