There probably isn’t two more loyal types of drivers than Volkswagen and Subaru drivers. People who have experienced either of these brands tend to stay with them for the long run. So, comparing the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan vs the Subaru Forester is a very important test. Your loyalty will likely lie with the brand you choose because each have their own designs that imprint on your driving spirit. That being said, there are a reason why Volkswagen loyalists are so vocal about their brand.
For most vehicles the limits of customization are how far forward or back you can move your seat. It doesn’t get much more advanced than that. Volkswagen decided that it needed to make the Tiguan more personalized. That’s where the digital cockpit came into the picture. You now have control of the gauges in front of you, and the ability to add a map right where you really need it. This makes the driving experience more personalized, and perhaps even a little safer.
There is all wheel drive, then there is 4Motion. Volkswagen examined the best parts of all wheel drive, and developed their own system called 4Motion. 4Motion utilizes sensors to determine which of your tires is slipping, and which of your tires has control. It then delivers power to the tires that have the traction properly to maintain the direction of your vehicle. This is extremely important when going offroad and when battling through a Minnesota snow storm. When the road conditions are at the worst you want 4Motion all wheel drive.
