HERNDON, Virginia — The base 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan S SUV starts at $26,860, including an $865 destination charge, reflecting a $2,690 price increase over the base 2014 model, according to Volkswagen of America.
The price increase is due to the discontinuation of the base Tiguan with a six-speed manual transmission, Volkswagen spokesman Mark Gillies confirmed for Edmunds. The base 2015 Tiguan is equipped with a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
VW's top-of-the-line 2015 Tiguan R-Line 4Motion starts at $40,100, including shipping.

This is a carryover vehicle with minimal changes for the 2015 model year.
"The changes are most significant in the interior of the vehicle," Volkswagen said in a statement.
They include a number of standard infotainment features, including VW Car-Net connected services, a media interface with iPod cable, rearview camera and Premium VIII touchscreen audio system.
Other changes include a new rear bumper on the top R-Line model.
Edmunds says: 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan pricing has increased, but so has the level of standard equipment.
