2022 Volkswagen Tiguan for Sale in West Warwick, RI
Some exciting changes surround the 2022 VW Tiguan, led by some innovative technology and a more aggressive appearance after some mid-cycle restyling. The automaker is rolling out a revised logo with this new model year, and the Tiguan displays it on an updated grille and redesigned front end. LED headlights and heated front seats are now standard on every trim, and some fresh wheel designs make their debut. The interior has been overhauled with modern features like the Digital Cockpit and an all-new steering wheel design with touch controls. What’s more, every trim but the base gets a new touch-sensitive control panel in the center stack, along with state-of-the-art driver-assist technologies including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and the semi-autonomous driving system, Travel Assist.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan is a midsized crossover that can seat up to seven (front-wheel drive models have three rows and all-wheel drive models have two). When just the front row is occupied, the spacious interior offers 73.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The trim lineup includes the S, SE, SE R-Line Black, and SEL R-Line, and the powertrain pairs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (184 hp and 221 lb.-ft. of torque) with an 8-speed automatic transmission. FWD is standard (with AWD optional) on the S, SE, and SE R-Line Black, and AWD is standard on the SEL R-Line. The trims with FWD return an EPA-rated 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The S and SE with AWD get 22 city/29 highway, while the AWD R-Line trims achieve 21 city/28 highway.
Standard Features and Options
The well-equipped S trim has automatic LED headlights, black roof rails, heated washer nozzles, heated side mirrors, keyless entry, and 17-inch wheels. The SE gains rain-sensing windshield wipers, a remote opening/closing tailgate, silver roof rails, and 18-inch wheels. The SE R-Line Black returns the black roof rails and adds a moonroof, trim-specific bumpers, a black grille, black side sills and exterior trim, body-colored lower cladding, and 19-inch wheels. The top-end SEL R-Line gets those special R-Line attributes and goes back to the silver roof rails. It also has trim-specific intakes, a hands-free liftgate, an illuminated grille, side mirrors with memory, and 20-inch wheels, plus an adaptive front-lighting system with special all-weather headlights enhanced with low-speed corner-illumination.
Some noteworthy interior features of the base S are push-button start, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob, three 12-volt power outlets (one in the front console, one in the rear console, and one in the cargo area), two front USB-C data ports, and the 8-inch Digital Cockpit. The SE adds remote start, a power driver’s seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, a faux leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette upholstery, a rear USB charging port, and a wireless smartphone charger. The SE R-Line Black receives 15-color ambient lighting and a genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel with an R-Line badge. The SEL R-Line tops the range with genuine leather seats (ventilated in the front row), a power front passenger’s seat, and the 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro.
Safety and Technology
Driver-assist technology is abundant in the ‘22 Tiguan. The S includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. The SE also gets adaptive cruise control, travel assist, lane assist, and emergency assist, and the SE R-Line Black adds park distance control. The SEL R-Line gets the most, with a dynamic road sign display, automatic high beams, and a surround-view camera system.
On the entertainment and connectivity front, the S gets a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SE and SE R-Line Black upgrade to an 8-inch touchscreen with voice recognition, HD radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, Car-Net remote services, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SEL R-Line adds integrated navigation and a premium Fender sound system.
