Tiguan Price Up, Warranty Down for 2020

For 2020, Volkswagen is hiking the price of the Tiguan crossover. But to make up for that, they’re making some safety features standard across the board.

There aren’t any serious changes for 2020, says CarsDirect. What VW is doing is adding automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic assistant as standard features on every trim. Previously, those required the $450 Driver Assistance Package.

You might have noticed that those two prices don’t quite even out, but that’s inflation for you.

The 2020 Tiguan S will start from $25,965. That’s $675 more than last year, with $650 a hike in MSRP and $25 added to the destination charge. Though if you wanted the extra driver aids anyway, it’s only $225 more than last year. SE is up $425, and SEL is up $475.

Want the R-Line? Well, good news. It’s down by $75 from last year.

VW is also cutting the warranty from six years/72,000 miles to four years, 50,000 miles. Though the 2020s do get two years free maintenance. 2020 Tiguans are beginning to show up at dealers now.
