  • Turbo charged engine

These same features are not available on the 2022 Subaru Forester. Some additional features that are standard on the Tiguan are a backup camera and steering wheel controls. Both of these features must be added for an additional charge on the 2022 Limited Forester.

Drivers enjoy the sporty drive of the SE Tiguan with an available 184 horsepower and 221 ft lbs of torque. The Limited Forested offers an available 182 horsepower with 176 ft lbs of torque.

The warranties offered when purchasing these vehicles brand new is also different. Volkswagen gives a 4 year OR 50,000 mile (whichever comes first) comprehensive warranty. With a new Subaru you will receive a 3 year OR 36,000 mile (whichever comes first) comprehensive warranty.

More power, more features, longer warranty and a better safety rating, for less money is what you get when you purchase a new 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SE over the 2022 Subaru Forester Limited. To see which one you prefer, contact Kalispell Volkswagen for a test drive.
