Volkswagen is bringing to life something called the Tiguan Limited -- "limited" in this case referring to the features, not the exclusivity. The latest VW crossover is intended to attract budget-minded customers with a starting price of $22,895 -- a savings of $3,350 over the 2018 base S trim that started at $26,245. The Tiguan was significantly redesigned for the 2018 model year, but this Limited trim is only available for 2017 as of now.
To make the Tiguan more affordable, Volkswagen fitted 16-inch steel wheels, swapped the standard eight-speed transmission with a six-speed unit and used a less capable 5-inch infotainment system. Cloth seating and halogen headlights come standard, but surprisingly enough, you can still option VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
The Tiguan Limited has a cloth interior standard, but tech bits can be added on with the Premium package.
Only two packages are offered on this “high value” Tiguan, including a Wheel package ($495) and Premium package ($1,295). The Wheel package tacks on 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels instead of the steelies. If for some reason you desire the Premium package on the stripper Tiguan, you’ll be able to enjoy a 6.33-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a leather steering wheel, roof rails and -- wait for it -- cruise control. VW decided you aren’t allowed to have cruise control on your cheap Tiguan unless the $1,295 Premium package is optioned.
However, even with both packages selected, the Tiguan Limited is still a good deal cheaper than the current base Tiguan. We asked Volkswagen about the future of the Limited and were told that if it lives beyond 2017, it will remain on the old platform and not the redesigned 2018 Tiguan.
VW says the bargain compact SUV will be in showrooms “soon.”
