V-Dub Tig versus RAV4
Before I bought my RAV... I looked at the Tig... There are things to like and disclike, like most cars...
VW & Audi do a great job on the driver experience, nice interiors, and great feedback from the road as your drive...fit&finish is very nice.
The bad is costly maintenance, the 2.0 Turbo has a ton of lag at around 2k rpms... and it is smaller inside. and I believe you will get kicked in the butt when you trade it later down the road... it will fall hard on resale value.
The RAV has the lower cost, higher value for the buck, and reasonable cost of ownership factor that can't be beat when you get the V6.
If you look at the I4 version, it gets crowded out there and you have a few more choices for a small crossover.
