The new Tiguan S with 4 motion can be had for mid $20's but I would consider them a compact SUV.

Base model ?

Here's a 2wd. You'll get the idea though.

Even a base model S VW is reasonably well equipped. What options do you need? You did not mention any in your opening post.

As others mentioned, Tiguan isn't really mid size, but it's certainly no smaller than your current Escape.

Looking for something above a base model as this will replace an 11 year old vehicle that’s well equipped and has served us very well . So the replacement will hopefully serve us equally as long or more

Tiguan is a deal, I paid $23k for a new FWD SE. Pano roof, BSM, forward collision, heated seats, nice infotainment system and 6/72 bumper to bumper. I'd call it midsize, it has a fairly long wheel base and as a result rides pretty nice.

2020s only have a 4/50 bumper to bumper.

Are the Tiguan’s made in the Chattanooga TN plant ?

Still lots of 2019 new Tiguan S AWD 4Motion models on dealer lots before the 2020's get here completely, and 2019 is the last model year for the 6-year bumper-to-bumper warranty thrown in for free.
I paid $23,000 for my new one a couple of months ago. Not many options. I did get the Automatic Safety Braking feature, which stops you automatically if it detects an obstacle in front of you.
It comes with automatic 8-speed tranny (Aisin) and air conditioning, lots of airbags, rear backup camera, you know, etc., all good, no frivolous options for me.
Truecar.com has market averages in your area, and you can just look at market transaction prices withouth giving them any of your personal info.
It uses VW 508 0w-20, very high spec/performance oil, even better than dexos1.

Thanks for the info
But to be honest I don’t even know where the closest VW dealer is to me
VW’s aren’t very popular in GA where I live
