VW Tiguan Interior Cabin

Volkswagen Tiguan vs Kia Sportage: A Look at Some Key Interior Dimensions

While both the VW Tiguan and the Kia Sportage provide their occupants with generous amounts of comfort when it comes to seating possibilities, it’s the VW Tiguan that starts out with the upper hand within this category. It does this by giving you and your passengers more than enough room to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

The numbers that reveal this fact the most are its measurements for shoulder room and legroom in the back seat. The Volkswagen Tiguan has 55.8 inches of shoulder room and 38.7 inches of legroom, while the Sportage falls short a bit by only containing 55.1 inches of shoulder room, and 38.2 inches of legroom in the back seat.

VW Tiguan Safety Features

Comparing Sound Systems and Safety Features

One way that the Volkswagen Tiguan is able to enhance the overall driving experience for everyone onboard is with the available Fender® Premium Audio System. With this, you’ll have the opportunity to appreciate your favorite driving soundtrack to the fullest as it comes equipped with nine speakers and a full-bodied 480-watt amp.

The system that’s available in the Sportage is quite impressive as well. However, it’s not quite as satisfying as the Fender®. For instance, the Harman/Kardon® Premium Surround Sound system only offers a total of eight speakers. In addition to this, it’s only able to put out a mere 320 watts.

When it comes to safety, the VW Tiguan has you covered with such items as the available Overhead View Camera that expands your awareness by providing you with a clear picture of the area directly surrounding the SUV. Unfortunately, the Kia Sportage is not available with an Overhead View Camera.
