Volkswagen Tiguan Trim Levels
If you’re searching for a spacious and dependable SUV that’s loaded with innovation, then the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan might be right for you. However, with seven trim levels to choose from, you may need help deciding on the ideal version of this compact SUV.
That’s why we’ve created this Volkswagen Tiguan trim-levels guide for drivers like you throughout Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, and Harrisburg. See what each trim has to offer below before browsing our VW Tiguan inventory easily online.
Volkswagen Tiguan S
The VW Tiguan S may be the base trim, but it comes with plenty of impressive features. First is the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission—that you’ll find in every trim level of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
This engine delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque for plenty of highway passing power. The transmission shifts smoothly and comes with a Tiptronic® mode, giving you the feeling of a manual. For snowy roads and uneven terrain, the S trim also offers Volkswagen’s legendary 4MOTION® all-wheel drive (AWD).
In addition, this trim is available with two or three rows of seats, giving plenty of room for five to seven people. Helping your eldest move into their first apartment? Drop the second and third rows to enjoy 65.7 cubic feet of available cargo room!
Cloth upholstery with a quilted rhombus design comes standard for stylish and comfortable seats. There’s also Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, making it easy to utilize your favorite mobile apps without handling your phone while driving.
When it comes to your safety, the S trim is anything but basic. A Rear View Camera System comes standard along with a full suite of active safety tech, including:
- Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist)
- Blind Spot Monitor (Side Assist)
- Rear Traffic Alert

VW Tiguan SE
The next trim is the Volkswagen Tiguan SE. Like the S trim, this one’s available in front-wheel drive or 4MOTION® all-wheel drive. The AWD system will continuously monitor road conditions. Then, it will distribute power between the front and rear wheels when needed to give you optimum traction on slick surfaces.
The inside of the vehicle has changed a bit as it now has V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces. You’ll also find Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control that lets you and your copilot adjust the cabin temperature to your individual preferences. The SE trim also provides heated front seats and 2nd-row air vents to maximize your comfort.
Furthermore, you’ll still find the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect. However, as the previous trim had a 6.5-inch touchscreen, this one has an 8-inch touchscreen for a better view of all your media options.
With such easy access to your favorite media, you’ll need a way to keep your smartphone charged. Good thing the SE supplies a wireless smartphone charger along with several charging ports throughout the cabin.

Volkswagen Tiguan SEL
In the VW Tiguan SEL, you’ll get an 8-inch touchscreen display as well as a 10-way power driver’s seat. So, not only can you easily get comfortable behind the wheel, but you’ll also be able to easily search and enjoy your favorite online services, too!
Like the SE trim, the SEL comes with a trial subscription to SiriusXM® All Access satellite radio. With over 150 music, news, and sports stations to choose from, you can remain entertained for hours.
Speaking of convenience, the SEL trim also comes standard with a remote opening and closing power liftgate for easier access. You also can let in a lot more sunshine with the power tilting/sliding panoramic sunroof.
Also like the SE, this trim level comes with lots of driver-assisting technologies. With features like Park Distance Control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist), you can be warned of any possible dangers before they occur. By always staying one step ahead, your VW Tiguan can help prevent an accident from happening.
VW Tiguan SEL R-Line & SEL Black R-Line
The next two trims in the Volkswagen Tiguan lineup—the SEL R-Line and the SEL Black R-Line—offer similar features.
One of them is a leather-wrapped steering wheel with an R-Line badge and stainless steel pedal caps for a sportier look and feel to the SUV. You’ll also get Volkswagen Car-Net® Guide & Inform with a trial subscription to SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link®. With these high-tech features in place, you’ll get to your destination in no time at all.
The main difference between these trims has to do with their exterior design. As the name implies, the SEL Black R-Line has black accents throughout. While the SEL R-Line comes with an R-Line front bumper and badging, the SEL Black R-Line has that badging with black accents.
Then, the SEL R-Line has silver roof rails and 19-inch twin 5-spoke alloy wheels. In the Black version, you’ll find black roof rails and black alloy wheels.

VW Tiguan SEL Premium & SEL Premium R-Line
The final two trims for the VW Tiguan are the SEL Premium and the SEL Premium R-Line. They each come standard with 4-MOTION® all-wheel drive for your peace of mind. They come with a Fender® Premium Audio System, too, for concert-quality sound in the cabin.
Like all the previous trims, these two also have lots of cargo room. Plus, a 40/20/40-split folding 2nd row lets you fit in larger items while still leaving room for a back-seat passenger or two. Leather seats are standard along with a customizable interior ambient lighting system.
However, unlike the other trim levels, the SEL Premium and the SEL Premium R-Line come with a Hands-free Easy Open and Easy Close liftgate. If your hands are full, just swipe your foot under the rear bumper. The liftgate will then automatically open for quick and easy loading.
To further prove its premium-level character, the SEL Premium trim uses an Overhead View Camera. This technology projects a 360-degree view of your SUV to help you better navigate tight parking spaces.
If you’re consistently making trips into the city, its Pedestrian Monitoring can help you stay alert to what’s—or who’s—just outside your view.
