The seven-seat Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is coming to showrooms early next year with order books opening in January.
As the first iteration of the Allspace, it comes with the latest technology that has been added to other VW models, such as the head-up display, an active info display behind the steering wheel and wireless smartphone charging.
It comes packed with multiple safety systems on offer, such as traffic jam assist – which helps keep the car in the right lane in congestion as well as controlling the acceleration and braking – and area view, which gives a 360-degree image of the vehicle to ensure you don’t hit anything. Other features like park assist, trailer assist and lane assist are also available.
As a way of filling the size gap between the five-seat Tiguan and larger Touareg, the Allspace is 215mm longer than the regular model to accommodate an extra two seats in the rear. Despite the added seating, you still get 615 litres of boot space, and when the rear set is folded down you get an extra 145 litre to total 760 litres. With all the seats in the back folded flat, you get 1,920 litres of storage space – which is mightily impressive.
Available in three trim levels from launch – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline – the Allspace comes with lots of equipment from the base spec, such as the connectivity package with phone and USB connections, a full infotainment system, 17-inch alloy wheels, a multifunctional steering wheel, LED daytime running lights and black roof rails.
With multiple engine and transmission options on offer, such as a 148bhp turbopetrol from base spec, 4Motion all-wheel drive is also fitted to the Tiguan Allspace with the diesel units.
