Volkswagen will offer its existing Tiguan as a value-based compact SUV known as the Tiguan Limited that will retail for $4,250 less than the new long-wheelbase model, the company has announced.

The 2017 Tiguan Limited will retail for at last $21,995 plus destination fees. It will be available in a single trim grade with a 2.0-liter turbocharged TSI engine that makes 200 horsepower. 

The engine delivers power through a six-speed automatic transmission to either front-wheel or 4Motion all-wheel drive.
