2023 Volkswagen Tiguan vs 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

Serving Troy, MI

For Troy-area SUV shoppers who expect great things from a small, capable crossover, it isn't easy to look beyond all the Volkswagen Tiguan offers. The Tiguan has been a mainstay in the Volkswagen lineup for years, thanks to a steady progression of advancements and updates. Between 2022 and 2023, however, the Tiguan holds steady. What appealing qualities do you need to know before picking a new crossover?


In 2022 and 2023, the Volkswagen Tiguan will be available in four trims, and its capabilities are unchanged. All trims boast an automatic eight-speed transmission with a 184-horsepower, turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder powertrain. The lower Tiguan trims are equipped with your choice of all-wheel or front-wheel drive. However, if you select the SEL R-Line, your Tiguan will have standard all-wheel drive. This is also the only trim to come with hill descent control.


The appeal of the Volkswagen Tiguan grows when you take a moment to admire its exterior style. Across both model years, the Tiguan displays a sense of sophistication mixed with confident athleticism. Its distinctive nose has a double scallop design through the pointed headlights, and these headlights are connected to horizontal bars streaming across the grille. Below the grille, a robust fascia design is brought to life by the angled air intakes on the flanks. The pinstripes on the doors are combined with slender vents close to the front fender to complete the look.


Your review of the Tiguan continues by looking at its many modern features. At the base level, the 2022 and 2023 Tiguan crossovers have gear like smart device connectivity, a Bluetooth connection, a 6.5-inch display in the center stack, an 8-inch digital driver’s display, a push-button ignition, heated front seats, two USB ports, and Car-Net. The more advanced Tiguan trims add an auto parking system, parking sensors, a sunroof, wireless smartphone apps, a larger display screen, an upgraded infotainment feature with voice controls, remote engine start, a power liftgate, and a rear auto-dimming mirror.
