2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Gets Price Increase

Pricing / Comments

But there's a good reason why.

Volkswagen is preparing to give the Tiguan an update for the 2020 model year, which will result in a price increase across the range. Order guides obtained by CarsDirect confirm the Tiguan will be up to $675 more expensive than last year's model - but there's a good reason why.

According to the order guide, the 2020 Tiguan S will start at $25,965 including the destination charge, making it $675 more expensive than last year's $25,290 MSRP. The starting price for the SE and SEL trims, on the other hand, will increase by $425 and $475 respectively. Conversely, the range-topping SEL Premium R-Line will be $75 cheaper than last year's model.

For the higher asking price, the entry-level 2020 Tiguan S will come with automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic assist as standard. These safety features were previously only available if you bought the $450 Driver Assistance Package, which resulted in a combined price of $25,740. Effectively, then, the 2020 Tiguan S is only $250 more expensive than the 2019 model equipped with the Driver Assistance Package.

However, it's worth noting that Volkswagen is reducing its bumper-to-bumper warranty to four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. 2019 Tiguans, on the other hand, still offer six years/72,000 miles of coverage. However, 2020 Tiguans come with two years of free routine maintenance, which isn't offered for the 2019 model. If you'd rather buy a 2019 model, dealers are currently offering $1,500 discounts in unadvertised cash incentives.

Like last year's model, the 2020 Tiguan will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Power can be sent to either the front or all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you want more power, rumors suggest Volkswagen is developing a high-performance R version.
