2023 Volkswagen Tiguan Cheaper To Lease Than Taos

The subcompact Taos and the compact Tiguan are Volkswagen’s two most popular models. Both crossovers currently feature lease deals, which isn’t out of the ordinary. What is interesting is that the Volkswagen Tiguan is currently cheaper to lease than the Taos, even though it's the more expensive vehicle.

Despite occupying a higher spot in the Volkswagen lineup, the 2023 Tiguan currently sports a better deal than the Taos. The Taos does sport a lower due at signing ($3,199) than the Tiguan ($3,999), but the Tiguan’s offer is $279 a month for 36 months with the Taos at $319. The result is a better deal for the Tiguan since you're getting a more expensive car for a lower effective monthly cost ($390 to $408).

Both offers are for the SE trim, which carries MSRPs of $30,580 and $28,925 respectively, and are based on a 10,000-mile annual mileage allowance. It’s worth noting that this offer is only available in certain Western regions like California, so be sure to check with your local dealer since VW lease prices can vary by location. Volkswagen is advertising both deals until May 1st.

2022 Volkswagen Taos

The Tiguan’s heftier price tag comes from its larger size, more powerful engine, and larger selection of standard safety features. It’s also optional with a third row. Unless the compact size of the Taos is really appealing to you, we’d recommend opting for the Tiguan while the deal is still available.

Conventional wisdom may lead you to assume that the Tiguan is lagging behind its smaller sibling in terms of sales, but that is not the case. The Tiguan is still Volkswagen’s bestseller. However, it is in a less favorable position to competitors from other brands, such as the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Mazda CX-5. Honda sells about as many CR-Vs in a month as VW moves Tiguans in a quarter despite being more expensive.

Volkswagen is likely making the Tiguan a higher priority this month to strengthen its foothold in the compact crossover market by giving it a better deal. Luckily for the consumer, the result of that is more Volkswagen for your dollar.
