The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the German automaker’s top models. As time goes on, the popularity of the Tiguan cannot be underestimated. The 2020 model year continues that tradition by offering the same trusted reliability, technology, quality, and safety that made the Tiguan such an important vehicle in the first place.

The SEL trim is not the top trim, nor is it the lowest trim. Still, the SEL trim deserves its own recognition as one of the most common versions of the Tiguan. The SEL delivers its owners a balance of premium technology without floating up into the starting MSRP range of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL Premium R-Line with 4MOTION®. The chart below summarizes the specifications and features you can expect on the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL.

Trim Level Analysis

Overall, while you can get more with two higher trim levels, not everyone is going to need much more than what the SEL trim provides. There is an option for those who want more traction but moving up to the SEL with 4MOTION® trim adds about a thousand dollars to the starting MSRP. If you do not need the extra traction of 4MOTION® AWD or optional 3rd-row seating, the SEL trim is going to be just right for most drivers.
