2018 Volkswagen Tiguan kicking off at $25,345 image

In America, the popular compact crossover is only sold in its new, long wheelbase configuration, with standard three rows and the base model will kick off at $25,345 if equipped with front wheel drive.

Volkswagen’s refreshed Tiguan SUV is reaching dealer lots later this summer in the US, costing at least $25,345 – for the money the customer will receive the Tiguan S with standard perks such as front-wheel drive, 17-inch aluminum wheels, a rearview camera, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as power provided by the 2.0-liter TSI engine with 184 horsepower. The new model is switching to a standard three-row seat arrangement and packs VW’s new six-year/72,000-mile transferrable warranty.

Go for the 4Motion all-wheel drive version and you’ll have to shell out at least $26,645, but there’s a catch – the third row seating becomes optional for $500 on the all-wheel drive version. Going for a more premium Tiguan SE will cost $29,080 and give way to a bigger infotainment screen as well as more safety equipment and interior amenities. The $32,550 Tiguan SEL adds 18-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, navigation, adaptive cruise control, while the range-topping SEL Premium 4Motion comes with the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a price of $37,550.
