Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced that pricing for the 2022 Tiguan compact SUV will start at $25,995. The refreshed Tiguan features new styling and updated technology that will further its appeal in one of the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. market.
The Tiguan will offer four trim levels, all powered by an efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive or 4Motion® all-wheel drive is available on the first three trims, while the top-of-range model features standard 4Motion®. All Tiguan models are equipped with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission for smooth power delivery. A third row of seats, rare in the compact SUV segment, is standard on front-wheel-drive models; all-wheel-drive models only come with two rows.
The refreshed Tiguan sharpens its exterior styling with a completely revised front end, new LED light signature with available illuminated light line flanking the VW logo, and optional updated R-Line design elements. Four new wheel designs—from the standard 17-inch aluminum alloys to 18- , 19- , and 20-inch wheels—along with eight available colors offer owners multiple ways to customize the vehicle for their style and driving needs. New interior colors include Cinnamon leatherette and Noisette leather.
