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.
