HERNDON, Virginia — The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan starts at $25,755, including an $865 destination charge, reflecting a $1,365 price decrease compared to the base 2015 model, according to Volkswagen of America.
For 2016, the Tiguan R-Line is repositioned at a lower price point between the S and SE trims "to make the sporty and aggressive styling even more accessible," VW said. The Tiguan R-Line was the top-of-the-line model for the 2015 model year.
The 2016 Tiguan R-Line is priced at $29,565, including shipping. Details include a roof spoiler, body-color side skirts, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with paddle shifters and stainless-steel pedals.
In comparison, the 2015 R-Line starts at $38,515, including shipping.
The new top-of-the-line 2016 Tiguan 2.0T SEL is priced at $35,310, including shipping, for a price increase of $855 versus the 2015 SEL model.
On sale now at Volkswagen dealerships, the 2016 Tiguan is a carryover vehicle with a few new standard features. They include leatherette seating surfaces, heated seats and keyless entry with push-button start.
A 200-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI gasoline engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic manual shifting is standard in every 2016 Tiguan.
Edmunds says: Volkswagen dangles a tantalizing Tiguan price cut on the base model before shoppers in this hot segment.
