2020 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2020 Nissan Rogue: Passenger Dimensions

As midsize SUVs and crossovers, the VW Tiguan and the Rogue were both designed to give you and your loved ones enough space to go on adventures all around the state and the country. But which one does a better job of accomplishing this goal? Well, in one respect, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan does. It offers 2- and 3-row models (with the latter seating up to seven people), while the 2020 Nissan Rogue can only seat a maximum of five people. Plus, certain passengers will have a bit more room for their heads and shoulders:

  • VW Tiguan 2nd-Row Headroom (no moonroof): 39.1 inches
  • Nissan Rogue 2nd-Row Headroom (no moonroof): 38.5 inches
  • VW Tiguan Front Shoulder Room: 57.0 inches
  • Nissan Rogue Front Shoulder Room: 56.6 inches

So, now you know that you can load up the fam (or the friends!) and hit the road in either of these SUVs. However, you may be able to bring a few more along in the VW Tiguan. But how safe will everyone be?
