Volkswagen has drastically reduced the price of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan effective immediately to better appeal customers in the highly competitive compact crossover segment, Automotive News reports, citing a letter from the German automaker to its dealerships. These cuts have been confirmed with pricing documents on VW's press site.

The cuts range from US$ 600 to US$ 2,180 leaving the top SEL Premium version as the only trim that isn't getting slashed. Both all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive variants are included in the price cuts.

The Tiguan Limited, a continuation of last generation's model with only two rows, remains untouched at US$ 22,860 including destination.

The new Tiguan arrived to US dealerships last summer with an additional 10 inches of length, and a third row to better appeal to US buyers. It received the IIHS Top Safety Pick award for its crash safety, although mediocre headlights prevented it from getting the top-tier Top Safety Pick+ accolade.

All prices include VW's $900 destination charge.
