Ownership cost

What used Volkswagen Tiguan estate will I get for my budget?

Shop around and you can find this generation of Tiguan for as little as £12,000 now. This will buy you a 2016-17 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer. Up the budget to between £13,000 and £15,000 and you’ll find 2017 and 2018 cars with low mileages on the forecourts of franchised VW dealers, with your choice of engines (although most Tiguans are diesels) and some four-wheel drive examples, too. Spend between £15,000 and £17,000 on a 2018/2019 car.

How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Tiguan estate?


Whether petrol or diesel powered, the Tiguan is fairly economical in comparison with its rivals. The top-performing petrol engine, the 1.4 TSi 150 in S trim, returns 48.7mpg under the older NEDC fuel consumption tests, and the best diesel, the 2.0 TDI 150 in S trim, achieved 56.5mpg under the same NEDC rules. Under the more modern and realistic WLTP tests the 1.5 130 engine manages 42.8mpg and the 150 version 40.4mpg, while the 2.0 TDI 150 in S trim is the best performer, with 47.9mpg. 

Car Tax

Tiguans registered after 1 April 2017 will pay the latest flat-rate of annual car tax (VED) with an additional surcharge for any example that cost more than £40,000 when new. Those cars registered before this date will pay varying rates linked to their CO2 emissions.

Insurance groups are low, on the whole, ranging from 11 for the base petrol and diesel models up to 27 for the powerful 2.0 Biturbo TDi 240 model.


Servicing costs shouldn’t be too exorbitant, and older examples over three years of age can take advantage of fixed-price maintenance that currently runs at £179 for a minor service and £349 for a major.
