2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL R-Line 4MOTION

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact SUV produced by Volkswagen since 2007. This SUV is assembled at Volkswagen plants in Wolfsburg (Germany) and Kaluga (Russia).

The name Tiguan is made up of two German words Tiger (“tiger”) and Leguan (“iguana”) and won a naming contest by the German car magazine publisher Autobild.

I am test driving the Tiguan Top of the line SEL R-Line model that includes standard 4Motion all-wheel drive.

This Tiguan has everything you need and more. Volkswagen offers very generous features on this top model. Among many standard features it includes: 20-inch silver-colored alloy wheels; illuminated light strip in the grille; LED headlights with integrated cornering and bad weather lighting; Light Assist (high beam control); Park Assist (parking assistant); Zonal view (top view camera); Dynamic recognition of road signs.

The modern and advanced 10.25″ Digital Cockpit Pro display includes the Media MIB3 infotainment system with navigation; premium Fender audio system; R-Line bumpers and side sills; steering wheel heating; leather seats; driver’s seat with three-position memory; 8-way power passenger seat with 2-way lumbar support; ventilated front seats; and Easy Open/Easy Close tailgate.

If you buy the 2022 Tiguan SEL R-Line 4MOTION you will feel on top of the world with every possible feature available at your fingertips, but the good news are that it will only cost you around $37K.  Or if you prefer to buy the base model Tiguan S then you can stay at a low price of $26K only for a a nice SUV like this one.
