Overview

For the 2020 model year, the Tiguan is offered in five trims-S, SE, SE R-Line Black, SEL, and SEL Premium R-Line. Tiguan models receive a modest value alignment, with Front Assist, Side Assist, and Rear Traffic Alert becoming standard on all models.


In addition to the newly standard driver-assistance features, all models are equipped with the next-generation Car-Net® telematics system, as well as in-car Wi-Fi capability when you subscribe to a data plan. Wireless charging is available, starting on the SE trim.


The new Tiguan SE R-Line Black trim features 20-inch black aluminum-alloy wheels, black-accented R-Line® bumpers and badging, fog lights, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear Park Distance Control, and a black headliner.


The Tiguan SEL model adds upscale features like a heated steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and rain-sensing wipers. The SEL Premium R-Line adds a new heated wiper park, standard R-Line content, and 20-inch wheels.

Interior

Well-designed interior: Modern styling and spacious rear legroom creates a comfortable vibe inside the car, and will have everyone asking to take the long way home.

Panoramic sunroof: Let the light in with the available panoramic sunroof that blends seamlessly into the cabin.

Cargo capacity: With a spacious 73.5 cubic feet of cargo room in the 5-seat model when you fold the rear seats down, easily pack the things you need.

Dual-zone automatic climate control: You can't control the climate outside, but inside you can ride comfortably with available dual-zone climate control.


The versatility of Tiguan's seating is what sets it apart from the competition. In front-wheel-drive Tiguan models, three rows of seating are standard, including a second-row bench that can recline, slide seven inches fore and aft, fold down, and be split 40/20/40. The 50/50 split third-row provides seating for two, and also folds down. When configured with 4Motion all-wheel-drive, the 2020 Tiguan comes standard with two rows and a third row is optional.

In three-row models, folding the rear seats creates 33 cubic feet of rear cargo space, and that can be easily expanded to a maximum of 65.7 cubic feet by folding the second row using the levers in the cargo area. With all three rows in place, there is still a handy 12 cubic feet of cargo space.

In two-row models, the Tiguan supplies a generous 37.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 73.5 cubic feet in all. The 40/20/40 split seats allow the two-row Tiguan to accommodate skis, fishing gear, or other large items.

In the cargo area, tie-down hooks help keep things in place and a 12-volt outlet is included. In models equipped with the available Fender® Premium Audio System, the subwoofer is hidden in the spare tire area to avoid sacrificing cargo space.

To let the outside into the Tiguan cabin, there's an available panoramic glass tilt-and-slide sunroof. This aerodynamically and acoustically optimized panoramic roof is comprised of an opening glass panel at the front and a fixed glass panel at the rear. It features pinch protection and an electrically-operated one-touch sunshade that covers the inside of the entire glass area. The expansive sunroof is available for the SE trim and is standard on the SE R-Line Black, SEL, and SEL Premium R-Line.

The interior features modern, high-quality design with a sporty, driver-focused layout, using gloss-grey and chrome details. Standard features include a multi-function steering wheel and cloth seats with a rhombus pattern that offers a premium look. Tiguan SE, SE R-Line Black and SEL models feature heated front seats with leatherette seating surfaces. SE and SEL models feature a leatherette-wrapped steering wheel, while SE R-line models step up to a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The SEL Premium R-Line brings leather seating surfaces and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel.

Dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control is standard on Tiguan SE, while the S model features manual climate controls. Wireless charging and KESSY® keyless access, along with push-button start, is standard equipment on SE trim levels and above.

Between the large speedometer and tachometer is a multi-function trip computer that helps monitor everything from fuel consumption to trip distance, Bluetooth® connection status and navigation directions (when equipped). The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit display, standard on SEL and SEL Premium R-Line models, offers drivers a reconfigurable display of key data and the ability to position navigation data front and center for easy viewing.

The Volkswagen Tiguan combines style and capability with its wide, low stance, bold character lines and LED lighting. With its refined appearance and ability to cater to an active lifestyle, the Tiguan successfully bridges the gap between adventure and city living.

The S trim is distinguished by halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, and 17-inch wheels. The SE trim also wears 17-inch wheels with a unique design, while the new SE R-Line Black trim features standard 20-inch wheels, fog lights with cornering functionality, and a panoramic sunroof. Further design elements specific to the SE R-Line Black are black roof rails, black-accented R-Line bumpers, black headliner, and interior and exterior R-Line badging. The Tiguan SEL includes 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, and rain-sensing wipers.

The top-of-the-line SEL Premium R-Line trim features standard R-Line content, 20-inch wheels, LED headlights with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), and power-folding exterior mirrors with puddle lights. The SEL Premium R-Line also features a hands-free Easy Open power liftgate, which is foot-activated on opening to make Tiguan's cargo space more accessible when customers' hands are full. The liftgate also includes an Easy Close feature-a kick under the rear bumper initiates closing.

The exterior design of Tiguan also emphasizes its rugged utility. The front bumper, for instance, is similar to the European model's off-road package, complementing the Tiguan's available 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system with a 26-degree approach angle. Other indications of its off-road capability are a 23-degree departure angle and 7.9 inches of ground clearance.

Roof rails are standard, allowing outdoors enthusiasts to upgrade the vehicle with Volkswagen accessories such as bike, kayak, and ski carriers. The available accessory towing hitch can be used to pull up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Driving Assistance: Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, High Beam Control, Lane Keeping System


To help protect occupants, the Tiguan provides a combination of both passive and active safety systems. It features six airbags as standard (front and side airbags for front passengers and side curtain airbags for outboard seating positions), along with a number of electronic safety systems, such as an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).

A standard feature on the 2020 Tiguan is Volkswagen's Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. This builds on the premise that a collision is rarely a single, instantaneous action, but rather a series of events that follow the initial impact-the most significant of which can cause additional collisions. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps address this, in certain crash scenarios, by applying the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus potentially reducing residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage.

The Tiguan also includes Volkswagen's Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard lights if the car is involved in certain types of collisions.

All Tiguan models feature a standard rearview camera.

To meet the demands of American drivers, the 2020 Tiguan offers a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance technology. Available features include: Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist); Blind Spot Monitor (Side Assist); Rear Traffic Alert; Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist); Park Distance Control; High Beam Control (Light Assist); and Overhead View Camera (Area View).

Front Assist, standard on all models, is intended to warn drivers of potential frontal collisions (Forward Collision Warning) with vehicles and pedestrians, and in some cases provide automatic braking assistance (Autonomous Emergency Braking).

Car-Net Remote Access gives owners the ability to interact with their vehicle from miles away via the mobile app. It is offered at no additional charge for five years from the date of vehicle purchase. Features include remote start and stop (if equipped), remote door lock and unlock, remote honk and flash of lights, last parked location, and remote vehicle status display, which provides information on fuel level, mileage, and door and window status.
