2020 VW Tiguan Getting More Gear, But You Might Want The 2019MY For Its Longer Warranty

The second generation Volkswagen Tiguan will be updated for the 2020MY, getting more standard features across the range.

The added gear which, in the base Tiguan S includes automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, will reportedly bump the price to $25,965, according to CarsDirect, up from the outgoing model’s MSRP of $25,295.

As per Volkswagen’s listing, the current Tiguan SE and SEL grades start from $26,695 and $31,795, without destination. From the 2020MY, though, they will carry a $425 and $475 premium, respectively. The range-topping Tiguan SEL Premium R-line, which now costs $38,895, is said to become $75 cheaper.

VW is also expected to revise the bumper-to-bumper warranty , dropping it from 6 years/72,000 miles (115,873 km) to 4 years/50,000 miles (80,467 km).

If the 2019MY sounds more appealing, then you should hurry up and place a deposit, especially if you want to take advantage of the $1,500 cash incentives.

The outgoing Tiguan is already 3 years old, so naturally, the wheels for its successor have started spinning. It’s been reported that the Germans are already working on the third generation, with a significant update in styling.

Likely based on an updated variant of the MQB architecture, the next Tiguan should get some engine options coming from the Golf Mk8, which could include two plug-in hybrids, making around 170 hp and 250 hp. The sportier Tiguan R is also expected to be in the pipeline, and could get a 2.0-liter, turbo-four, producing up to 350 hp.

    Props to VW for offering such a lengthy warranty. Overall, I think the Tiguan is a decent vehicle, but I’ve heard it has lack luster performance in day to day travel.

    • Jawohl

      Such a lengthy warranty? Really? For example, in Australia VW offer 5yrs unlimited miles/km.

        Impressive, but I live in the United States. Last time I visited Australia I rented a Land Cruiser diesel for my stay, loved it to pieces.

        Well it’s lengthy compared to the miserable 3 years and 60k mileage limit in the UK (although they are not alone). But it does show how little faith they have in the long term reliability of their vehicles.

      OK I’m not the only one. WTF is that.

    Current gen Tiguan took a year from being in the roads in Germany to get to the states. So if another model is coming out 2021, I would expect it in the states 2021.
