  1. It is often seen that verdicts are made for both products with same amount of merits.But in the real world scenario it’s not the same. Unlike the review I found quality of the cabin of compass is better than tiguan .I found the compass is the clear winner except the service network. The overpriced vw tiguan is not a worthy product.
