Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace (2018–)

Model History

March 2017

Volkswagen unveiled the Tiguan Allspace

The new Volkswagen SUV fills the space between the familiar "classic" Tiguan and the upper-range SUV Touareg. It has 760 litres of bootspace and a maximum of 1920 litres.

4,701mm long x 1,839mm wide (2,099mm with mirrors) x 1,674mm high.

Just like the normal Tiguan, the Tiguan Allspace is also available in on-road and off-road versions of the front section. The latter can be ordered with an optional "off-road package" together with special engine underbody protection that extends to the bumper for off-road driving. The off-road front section improves the vehicle’s approach angle by 7 degrees.

Tiguan Allspace vehicles are all equipped with roof rails as standard. The roof itself was also redesigned: striking structural lines are being used for the first time instead of a smooth roof surface. They extend lengthwise along the roof from front to rear. If the Tiguan Allspace is equipped with a panoramic sliding sunroof, the structural lines are of course only on the rear roof area.

Even in the Trendline base version there are additional features such as the above-outlined roof railings (in black), the Composition Colour Media System together with the Connectivity Package (phone and USB interfaces), a multifunction steering wheel, sophisticated trapezoidal trims integrated into the diffuser,and a variable cargo floor.

The performance range of the Tiguan Allspace starts at 150PS and reaches 240PS.

Tiguan Allspace available to order

The Tiguan Allspace is 4701 mm long (Tiguan: 4486 mm) and has a wheelbase of 2787 mm (Tiguan: 2681 mm). A third row of fold-flat occasional seats means the Tiguan Allspace can carry up to seven people and still boast a luggage capacity of 230 litres. Or, with five people in the car, the luggage capacity is 700 litres, and increase of 85 litres over the ‘regular’ Tiguan (615 litres).

Further emphasising its enhanced flexibility, the Tiguan Allspace’s middle row of seats can be slid fore and aft by 180mm, and can also fold flat. With both the middle row and the third row of seats folded down, the luggage capacity of the Tiguan Allspace is a cavernous 1775 litres.

Three high specification trim levels make up the Tiguan Allspace range. Beginning with the generously equipped SE Navigation models, it continues with the luxurious SEL and sporty R-Line.

As well as the third row of fold-flat seats every model has at least 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors and 3Zone climate control. All have Volkswagen’s Discover Navigation infotainment system with an 8.0-inch colour touchscreen, satellite navigation, DAB radio and a CD player, as well as Bluetooth smartphone connectivity.

Driver assistance systems fitted across the board come in the form of Adaptive Cruise Control, which tracks the speed of the car ahead and automatically accelerates and brakes the Tiguan Allspace while keeping a safe gap ahead, as well as Lane Assist, Front Assist and City emergency braking.

SEL spec’ adds Active Info Display, Volkswagen’s 12.3-inch TFT screen mounted in the instrument binnacle. It offers customisable menus that display a range of different information about the car such as speed, gear, fuel consumption, navigation instructions or map, and much more. SEL trim also includes 19-inch alloy wheels, front sports seats with 14-way adjustment, hands-free boot opening, and a panoramic sunroof.

R-Line brings a variety of sporty styling cues to the Tiguan Allspace, including 20-inch ‘Suzuka’ alloy wheels, sports suspension (lowered by approx. 15 mm), a body-coloured rear spoiler, and black interior rooflining.

Engine options are broadly similar to the Tiguan. The 1.4-litre TSI ACT engine has a peak power output figure of 150PS and benefits from Active Cylinder Technology, which means two of the four cylinders shut down when the car is cruising to save fuel. A second petrol option is the 2.0-litre 180 PS TSI unit, available exclusively with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox.

The diesel range includes three 2.0-litre turbocharged engines, with peak power outputs of 150PS, 190PS and 240PS. The 150PS unit is particularly versatile, with the choice of front-wheel drive or 4MOTION all-wheel drive and six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes.

In 190PS diesel-engined form the Tiguan Allspace has a top speed, where legal, of 130mph and completes the 0-62mph sprint in 8.6 seconds. When equipped with the 240PS BiTDI engine the top speed is 142mph and 0-62mph takes 6.7 seconds.

Fuel economy on the combined cycle ranges from 46.3mpg for the 150 PS TSI to 43.5mpg in the 240PS TDI diesel engine. CO₂ measurements range from 131g/km for the 2.0-litre 150 PS TDI with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive to 175g/km for the 2.0-litre 180PS TSI engine with 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
