Safety has always been a priority for automotive brands, and Volkswagen is no different. Volkswagen heavily focuses on it in their cars. The Tiguan is no exception and comes standard with Auto Post Collision Braking, rear cameras, lane departure assist, blind spot monitoring and much more! The Rogue does not come standard with Auto Post Collision Braking and tends to leave a bit to be desired for it being 2020. Did you know that Volkswagen’s basic warranty and corrosion warranty are double what is offered by Nissan with a basic of 6 years/72,000 miles and 10 years for corrosion. Chances are you won’t have to use it due to the immense level of reliability that comes with Volkswagen cars. The Tiguan specifically uses cast iron blocks for durability while the Rogue uses Aluminum, and Aluminum is much more prone to cracking, breaking and warping at higher temperatures.232 × 200
