2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Trims & Specs

Volkswagen has improved the 2022 Tiguan in enough areas to keep it near the front of the segment. Besides being slightly down on power, there isn't much that this crossover does wrong. All models are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot making 184 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. An unobtrusive eight-speed automatic transmission shifts gears smoothly, and FWD and AWD are on offer. Only FWD models have a third seating row, however.

The base Tiguan rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and has LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, cloth upholstery, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, and the brand's eight-inch Digital Cockpit. All models have safety gear like blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning. As the price goes up, the upper trims add equipment like a larger touchscreen, a larger gauge cluster, leather or leatherette upholstery, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. Only the top SEL R-Line has a Fender sound system and hands-free access.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan?

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan starts at an MSRP of $25,995 for the S, increasing to $29,495 for the SE. The SE R-Line Black will cost $32,295 and the SEL R-Line - the only trim with standard AWD - has a price of $36,595. Adding AWD costs $1,500 on the other trims and removes the rearmost seats in the process. These Volkswagen Tiguan prices all exclude a destination charge of $1,195.

Additional Packages

There aren't many packages to choose from since VW has already equipped the Tiguan to a high standard. On the base S, the IQ.DRIVE Package & S Convenience Package looks like excellent value at $895. With adaptive cruise control, lane assist, rain-sensing wipers, a leatherette steering wheel and more, this is a box we'd definitely tick. On the SE, a panoramic sunroof will add $1,200 to the bill. Other than these upgrades, the options list is limited to accessories like a bike holder, a cargo box attachment, and a hood deflector.

🚗What 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Model Should I Buy?

If you need all-wheel drive and three rows, then you're out of luck if you like the Tiguan. We suspect most will skip right over the not-so-basic S trim, which we think is a serious value proposition in the segment if you want something utilitarian. The SE trim is going to be Volkswagen's volume seller for the refresh, and rightfully so. It boasts a ton of utility and technology for the average family, whether the third row is going to be in regular use or kept down until the odd occasion it becomes useful. In that case, we really don't see much value in the R-Line Black trim level as larger wheels will negatively impact ride quality, and the sporty trim and accents aren't enough to help justify the cost to add the panoramic sunroof. We would tick that box separately and make sure we were careful when parking as the park distance control is a great feature.

Moving to the top SEL R-Line is something we would think about carefully and only seriously consider if we knew serious seat time was in the future. While it has genuine leather seats, the Fender sound system, and ventilated seats, we wish the 20-inch wheels were an option purely on the basis of ride quality.
