The position of the VW Tiguan in Vietnam

Previously, the VW Tiguan had only one version in Vietnam, with a listed price of 1.999 billion VND. However, this SUV often had to undergo significant price cuts to sell. In October 2023, the car's price dropped by up to 500 million VND, down to 1.499 billion VND, comparable to popular 7-seater SUVs like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, and Ford Everest.

Currently, many dealerships are offering the VW Tiguan with a discount of 300 million VND, bringing the price down to 1.699 billion VND, which is still higher than the newly launched Tiguan Platinum version.

According to Volkswagen Vietnam, since its launch, the Tiguan has sold over 3,000 units in the Vietnamese market.

The Volkswagen Tiguan in Vietnam is a 7-seater SUV, powered by a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine with 4 cylinders, producing 180 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque. The car features a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive.

The front end is equipped with new headlights and daytime running LEDs, designed similarly to the latest generation Volkswagen Golf. The LED matrix headlights IQ.Lights with 24 LED bulbs per module allow for adjustable lighting on the road without dazzling oncoming drivers. The taillights also have a new design.

In terms of safety technology, the Volkswagen Tiguan is equipped with electronic stability control, collision sensors, cruise control, speed limiter, tire pressure monitoring, automatic parking assist, drowsiness alert, steering reminder, and hill ascent and descent assist. Compared to Korean models like the Santa Fe and Sorento, the Tiguan is weaker in safety technology as it lacks advanced safety features (ADAS).
