The GTI of SUVs???
That’s how Vw will try to sell the Tiguan in the US.
With the worst dollar/Euro exchange rate ever, the base FWD manual Tiguan end up being almost $24 000 in the US.
Compare this to $20 700 for a base FWD CRV
Or $ 21 250 for a base Rav 4.
Sure, the VW has more power than the base versions of the other guys. But $3000 to $4000 is quite a bit of money.
So you have to try to find a way to justify it. You can bet the VW won’t be more reliable or get a better resale than the Toyota or the Honda.
Make people think they are buying a bargain German SUV (which they are).
Will this work?
What do you think???
