What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the Volkswagen Tiguan

Price of the Volkswagen Tiguan: Pros
20114dr SUV turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
VW Credit gave me incredible financing even though I had a foreclosure and a bankruptcy the previous year.
Price of the Volkswagen Tiguan: Cons

That speaks for itself. My wife saw an ad for the Mercedes CUV, at a better price. "We bought a VW for more than a Mercedes-Benz?" she asked sardonicaly. "Yes, but it doesn't have the VW's goodies." The Tiguan's frills quickly feel like necessities. You NEED the micro-adjustments and seat-cushion tilt of the power seats. My teen driver needs the backup camera. The sunroof is a marvel. And aren't those the best headlights ever, bending 15% so I can pretend to schase them around curves? On a dark road, the left-side high beam rises high as the left, spotlighting that roadside deer you wouldn't see with a fixed high beam. A base Tiguan, in the low $20Ks, probably makes more sense than a Golf. You get a better engine and more interior space, even wothout the options.

Without large discounts, this vehicle is pricey.
