New Volkswagen Tiguan 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Higher cost for Mazda CX-5 rival

The Tiguan has had its pricing increased for the second time in five months.

For the second time in five months, Volkswagen Australia has increased the pricing of the second-generation Tiguan mid-size SUV, this time by up to $700.

Specifically, all 110TSI and 132TSI variants are $500 dearer, while 162TSI versions have risen by $700, with their prices likely to be adjusted again when the recently revealed facelifted model arrives around April next year.

Either way, the Tiguan range now starts from $34,990 plus on-road costs for the five-seat 110TSI Trendline FWD and reaches $53,190 for the seven-seat Allspace 162TSI Highline AWD (see full pricing table below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Volkswagen Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to the Mazda CX-5 rival’s standard specification, with its increased pricing prompted by exchange-rate and inflationary pressures.

Just like before, 110TSI variants are motivated by a 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that exclusively sends drive to the front wheels.

Meanwhile, 132TSI versions use a 132kW/320Nm 2.0-litre unit that teams a seven-speed DCT with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, while their 162TSI siblings increase this combination’s outputs to 162kW/350Nm.

Buyers are offered two seating options, with the standard-wheelbase Tiguan providing room for five occupants, while its long-wheelbase Allspace counterpart has an extra pair of seats (and additional boot space).
