The 2022 VW Tiguan S is the cheapest model starting at $25,995 and AWD is an extra $1,500. It comes with LED headlights, keyless entry, the digital cockpit, and the previous-gen MIB2 infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. On that base model, the IQ.Drive Package costs $895 and adds features like active blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.
The SE starts at $29,495 in FWD trim. It adds the upgraded infotainment system, wireless charging, more USB ports, and the new climate systems. The SE R-Line Black is next at $32,295. It gets 19-inch wheels, black exterior accents, a panoramic sunroof, and 15-color ambient lighting as standard. Finally, we have the SEL R-Line, which gets everything including 20-inch wheels, adaptive front lighting, a Parking Steering Assistant, a birds-eye view camera, navigation, and the bigger 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro. It also has the 4Motion AWD system equipped by default.
Our pick would be the SE R-Line Black. It starts at $33,795 with 4Motion AWD. It comes standard with IQ.DRIVE, VW’s selection of safety and semi-autonomous features like forward collision warning, adaptive cruise, travel assist, and lane keeping. It also comes with the upgraded steering wheel and ventilation controls. Pick one of the new colors; they’re definitely the best.
