2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2019 Ford Escape
Volkswagen is in the odd place as seemingly the only German automaker that functions as a mass brand. By mass brand, we mean it targets drivers as a whole. While there are other German automakers, they are all luxury brands (Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz) and therefore have a much more specific target audience.
That means Volkswagen’s competitors are other mass brands from the Japanese, Korean, and American markets. In terms of USA-based automakers, Ford is a definite rival.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan compact SUV. Its counterpart in the Ford brand is the Ford Escape. Other than pickup trucks, the most popular Ford models are its SUVs. Therefore, can the Tiguan compete with the Escape? Will its specs and features be superior and enough to win over Ford brand loyalists? Let’s find out! It’s the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan vs the 2019 Ford Escape!
