Is The 2023 Tiguan R Coming to Canada?

The short answer is ‘maybe’. This is simply because there is still no information about this car’s release from the carmaker. However, just like the previous release, you may get the 2023 VW Tiguan R from the Canadian release. Keep in mind that you may need time from the release date to be able to get the Tiguan car from the nearest dealership.

How Much Will The 2023 Tiguan Cost?

According to sources, you can expect this car to be approximately $26,000. However, the approximate price is for the base trim, meaning that the feature will be pretty restricted, and the drivetrain type is front-wheel drive (FWD).

For your information, there are several choices you can get from this Tiguan lineup. There are S, SEL, SE, SE R-Line Black, and SEL Premium R-Line. The one with top quality—SEL Premium R-Line, is the one that comes with AWD as its default drivetrain.

What Can You Expect from This Car?

Compared to the previous release, you can get a similar design to what you can see from the release of 2022. However, there may be some details that you can have differences from the previously released Tiguan.

In the 2023 version of Tiguan, the interior is predicted to be similar to what you can see in the current release. However, the exterior may come with different small details. This will be apparent when you look at its grille, bumper, headlights, and taillights.

There are also little details that will help you to differ the 2022 release and the 2023 release: the body lines. It is predicted that the 2023 version of body lines will be sportier compared to the previous release. Hence, the feel of an SUV can be better felt here.

The 2023 VW Tiguan R is said to be the higher trim in the Tiguan lineup. It is just unfortunate that there is still no clear information about this car from the carmaker.

However, if we are relying on the information that the 2023 version is a carryover design from the previous release, then we can say that there won’t be many changes to expect on this car.

This means you will be able to see the 6.5-inch touchscreen perching on the front dashboard. To add, there is also Bluetooth and two USB ports as connectivity support. Not to forget, you will also get six audio speakers, and smartphone connectivity features, such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to complete the details.

Higher trim will have a better size of the touchscreen infotainment panel, which happens to be 8-inch. Also, the digital gauge will be better in size with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. Some features like a wireless charging pad, satellite radio, and navigation will also complete the higher trim of Tiguan R.

As for the seating and the towing capacity, some resources mentioned that it’d not be much changed as well. It will be the same in quality as what you can see on the current release.

What About Its Engine?

Again, you can find no information about this from the German carmaker. However, seeing some sources mentioning that the 2023 VW Tiguan R is a carryover model, it seems safe to mention that this car will remain using a similar engine.  No electrification whatsoever, though.

This means you will still have to come with its 2.0 L, 4-cyl engine. Expect 184 HP to be produced with this engine, and a 224-lb ft of torque. To complete the feature, you will get an 8-speed automatic transmission. Its drivetrain, as mentioned, is FWD for the standard. You can also get the AWD if you choose one, but this requires you to spend more bucks.

To sum it up, the 2023 VW Tiguan R may not be that different compared to the latest release. However, since there is no official announcement still, you can expect it to have changed in the details. Will it come to Canada? It’s more likely to be a ‘yes’, but nothing is sure until it’s released.
