Fresh off its major mid-generation facelift for the 2020 model year, which introduced the CR-V Hybrid, very little needed to be changed or enhanced for the new model year in the 2021 Honda CR-V. Even still, there’s plenty to get excited about with the iconic compact crossover, like its versatile utility, incredible safety technologies and impressive powertrain options. Available here in Lima OH, the CR-V continues to make an excellent option in its segment, as it has since it was first introduced all the way back in 1995.

As you can see from the table above, these two compact crossovers have their clear differences and advantages, but they’re also quite similar to one another. While they’re both compact crossovers, the final row of the table shows one big difference between the two crossovers, the VW Tiguan is actually a 3-row crossover despite being a compact utility vehicle. For that reason, the Volkswagen vehicle is capable of seating a couple of extra people. However, the tradeoff is that the CR-V certainly offers more standard cargo capacity. To be more precise, it offers 27.2 cubic feet more space, more than triple what the Tiguan S can provide.
In the first half of the table, the CR-V shows off a couple of other areas in which it gets a leg up. While an advantage of 6 horsepower would hardly be noticeable, achieving an extra 5 miles per gallon across highway and city driving is a relatively big deal. Over time, that will lead to quite a bit of savings at the gas pump.
