Thanks to their undeniable versatility, crossovers and SUVs are expected to continue dominating vehicle sales in the next decade. For some budgets, though, a brand-new model isn't exactly feasible. But that's where buying used comes in. Drivers who don't want to spend a lot can find plenty of high-quality used VW crossovers and SUVs at significant savings. You might even be looking for a discontinued Volkswagen SUV model, such as the Touareg, which you can only find on the preowned lot. Read on to learn more about the advantages of buying a used VW crossover or SUV.


Pricing: New vs. Used

Depreciation is what brings down the price of vehicles even if they're only a year or two old: the initial drop happens when the brand-new car is driven away from the dealership. That dip in valuation is the preowned-car buyer's best friend, since they can get a vehicle with years of reliable life left in it without the high payments that come with being the very first owner.

To give you some perspective on pricing, the Touareg in 2017 (its last year of production) was priced in the ballpark of $50,000 to $60,000, depending on the trim. If you were to purchase one of these models today as a 2016, you could find one with a price tag between $20,000 and $25,000 with less than 50,000 miles on the odometer. If you want one of the current models used, a 2017 Tiguan S can be found bordering $15,000 with about 20,000 miles, whereas a 2020 VW Tiguan carries an MSRP of $24,945.


VW Certified Pre-Owned Program

Some people consider the process of buying a used vehicle stressful because they feel that they don't know how well the vehicle has been treated over the years. If you shop for a certified pre-owned (CPO) model, you get peace of mind in the form of meticulous screening and long-term backing from the manufacturer with added warranty protection. In order for a VW to become CPO, it must pass a thorough 100+ point inspection. If anything is found that needs attention, certified Volkswagen technicians will recondition the vehicle using genuine VW parts. All CPO models will be covered with comprehensive warranty coverages that differ by model year. For example, a 1-year/12,000-mile warranty will be given to 2018 or newer models, a 2-year/24,000-mile warranty for 2017 or older models, and a 2-year/unlimited-mile warranty for 2016 or earlier models. To top it off, you'll get a free Carfax history report, 24-hour roadside assistance, and a complimentary three-month trial for SiriusXM satellite radio.
