Volkswagen Said To Drop The Tiguan Limited From North America

Despite having an entirely new Tiguan out, Volkswagen chose to offer the previous generation alongside it in North America.

It renamed it the Volkswagen Tiguan Limited and pricing starts from $22,250, which makes it $2,345 more affordable than the entry level new model.

For the money, buyers don’t get that much besides the infotainment system and reversing camera, as the base version is equipped with halogen headlamps, steel rims and cloth upholstery. Moreover, having the 4Motion all-wheel drive system means upgrading to the next trim level, which starts from $24,225.

Both of them make use of a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

2018 marks the second year Volkswagen is selling the Tiguan Limited in the United States. However, it could very well be the last one, too. According to CarsDirect, which quotes an email received from the brand’s spokesman, Mark Gillies, the crossover will be discontinued at the end of the year.

The company’s official confirmed that Volkswagen won’t bring back the older Tiguan in 2019, likely due to the poor sales compared to the new one.

From May 2017 to May 2018, VW moved only 7,732 units of the Tiguan Limited. During the same period, they sold 38,314 examples of the new generation. Last month alone, the Tiguan Limited accounted for 1,355 units, whereas the new Tiguan was chosen by 8,579 buyers.

    It’s about time. It’s ugly and dated.

    It’s not selling because it’s outdated and configurations are limited. (It still has a superior, albeit thirstier, powertrain to the new Tiguan.) But by discontinuing it, VW is creating yet another gap in their US lineup. The RoW Tiguan should be offered here in its place. Foolish, foolish VW.
