Our readers should be very well aware of our fondness for the latest Endeavour. The new Endeavour is a world-class product and a huge leap forward if you compare it with the last-generation model. The Ford Endeavour is on sale at a really competitive price point, has a long list of features, offers powerful engines and a really upmarket cabin. The Endy has a lot going for it. While it won’t become a direct rival to the Volkswagen Tiguan, there’s definitely going to be some competition due to a possible price overlap between some variants of the two models.

The Volkswagen Tiguan will come with a 2.0 L Turbo Diesel engine. This engine is likely to be available in two states of tune. It is likely to come along with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. In comparison, the Endeavour offers 2.2 L Turbo Diesel and 3.2 L Turbo Diesel engines. While the Endeavour enjoys a definite power advantage, at least on paper. Read world performance should be similar though. This will be due to the lower kerb weight and the fantastic DSG transmission of the Tiguan.

Volkswagen Tiguan vs Ford Endeavour Comparison Verdict

  • Price: Prices of the VW Tiguan are yet to be made public. However, in all likelihood, the Tiguan will be priced very close to the Endeavour. This means that for almost the same price, it will offer a smaller cabin and lesser street presence. In its defense, however, the Tiguan will offer a world-class engine and transmission combo and the proverbial ‘German build quality’.
  • Specifications: The Endeavour comes with bigger engines. However, thanks to a lower kerb weigt and the DSG automatic transmission, the performance difference between the two models here should be negligible.
  • Mileage: The Tiguan has a clear advantage here.
  • Dimensions: The Ford Endeavour is much larger.
  • Design: While the Endeavour looks really butch and enjoys a high road presence, the Volkswagen Tiguan, with its crossover-ish look, has a sporty edge to it.

VERDICT: We have always maintained that the two models here aren’t direct rivals. On the contrary, they are poles apart in most areas. While the Tiguan won’t be seen lagging behind in areas such as performance and cabin comfort, the Endeavour offers much more interior space and more seats. The VW SUV will also offer more mileage than the Endy. However, the Endeavour is very good even off the road and we are yet to test drive the Tiguan off the beaten tarmac. Both the models here offer a long list of features. Prices of the Volkswagen Tiguan are yet to be announced and we can give you a definite verdict only after we have the official price list. However, it’s for sure that Tiguan could become a good alternative for those who don’t require their SUVs to be really large on the outside and are fine with having just 5 seats.
