Volkswagen has unveiled its updated Tiguan Allspace – the seven-seat version of the firm’s best-selling SUV.
Introduced in 2017 as a more practical version of the Tiguan, the Allspace features a stretched wheelbase that allows for the addition of a third row of seats, as well as a much larger boot than the regular car.
Following the arrival of the facelifted standard Tiguan last year, Volkswagen has now pulled the covers off its updated Allspace model too. It’s headed up by a new front-end design, which sees a new grille with an illuminated light bar being introduced, along with Matrix LED headlights, additional colours and a new 18-inch alloy wheel design.
Inside, the Tiguan Allspace’s infotainment system is based on the Volkswagen Group’s latest MIB3 operating system, which allows for further integration of online and connected services, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An optional Harman Kardon sound system has also been developed for the model, while the climate settings get a modern makeover, with touch sliders to control the temperature replacing traditional rotary knobs.
Volkswagen has also tweaked the Tiguan’s safety assists, with improvements made to the lane keep assist and autonomous emergency braking. A new ‘Highway Assist’ feature is also now available, combining adaptive cruise control with lane centering technology.
It will be available with a wide choice of petrol and diesels, ranging in power outputs from 148bhp to 242bhp, while 4Motion all-wheel-drive is also available on many versions.
Like the standard Tiguan, the Allspace will get a revised trim level range, with new Life and Elegance trim levels replacing the Match and SEL trim levels, though a sportier-looking R-Line grade will continue to head up the range.
Full pricing and specifications are yet to be announced, though expect a slight increase on the current model’s £32,740 starting price.Enquire on a new Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace
