2018 VW Tiguan Price Cut to Spur SalesJanuary 8th, 2018
Volkswagen has done something interesting and rare to lure buyers into its dealerships. It has announced some meaningful price cuts on the 2018 Tiguan SUV. Rather than offer rebates, the company has decided to chop $600 off the base price, bringing it down to $25,495. The price cut is a welcome move, but it still makes it more expensive than the base Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Ford Escape.
However, the base FWD Tiguan does have third-row seating as standard, something that adds to the cost of the CR-V and isn’t available on the other competitors. If you opt for a mid-range Tiguan SE you can save $2,180 with the new pricing. SEL trim sheds $1,460 and the top-of-the-line SEL Premium sees no price cut.
If you opt for all-wheel-drive, you don’t get standard third-row seating. All Tiguan models use the same 2.0L turbo four making 184hp and 221 lb-ft of torque for 2018. They also grew 10-inches longer for the new year, and look much better if you ask me.
