Since it was launched onto the market in 2017, the Tiguan Allspace has become an out-and-out success. The new variant, which is 22 centimetres longer than the standard Tiguan, has sold more than 1.7 million units around the world to date. The Tiguan Allspace has now also received the same updates as the shorter model variant – impressing with a sharper look, digital cockpit and comprehensive connectivity. The different powertrain options have an array of sustainable innovations. The new control and assist systems guarantee even more convenience, as the new Tiguan Allspace brings on board a wide range of online-based services and functions, thanks to the next-generation Infotainment system MIB3.
When it comes to its look, the illuminated radiator grille and dynamic turn signals are real highlights. Customers also have the option of ordering the interactive IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights, which offer added safety and comfort. The LED tail light clusters have also had a makeover. Additionally, there are two new exterior paintwork options and an extra 18-inch design for the range of alloy wheels.
Spacious vehicle interior with a digital update
The Tiguan Allspace’s interior has enough space for an optional third row of seats. With this option, the spacious five-seater vehicle transforms into an SUV with space for up to seven people. To give the interior a modern feel, the vehicle is equipped with the Digital Cockpit Pro as standard, an updated multifunction steering wheel, and an Infotainment system with a large colour display measuring up to 9.2 inches. The optional Air Care Climatronic 3-zone automatic climate control system is controlled from a new module with touch panels in the centre console. Add to that the third generation of the modular infotainment matrix (MIB3), which enables customers to enjoy advanced We Connect mobile online services. These include, for example, an Online Voice Control feature, access to streaming services, cloud-based personalisation, and wireless use of apps via App-Connect Wireless for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The digital innovations in the new Tiguan Allspace enhance the driving experience while reflecting Volkswagen’s new ACCELERATE strategy – and the company’s transformation into a software-oriented mobility provider.
Wide range of drive systems, improved emissions
Five efficient and powerful drive systems are available for the new Tiguan Allspace: The 2.0-litre TDI drive systems with 110 kW (150 PS) and 147 kW (200 PS) improve their emissions thanks to a dual SCR catalytic converter with twin AdBlue® dosing. The 1.5-litre TSI engine with 110 kW (150 PS), which comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional 7-speed DSG dual clutch gearbox, is equipped with Active Cylinder Management (ACT). Two further 2.0-litre TSI engines are also available, delivering 140 kW (190 PS) and 180 kW (245 PS). Their power is transferred to the road thanks to the standard 7-speed DSG dual clutch gearbox and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. All engine options comply with the strict Euro 6d-ISC-FCM emission standard. In conjunction with 4MOTION, the permissible maximum trailer weight is 2.5 tonnes.
Advanced assist systems
The new Tiguan Allspace’s technological update also includes new, very advanced assist systems. The standard equipment package offers the enhanced Front Assist Autonomous Emergency Braking function, Lane Assist lane departure warning system, Driver Alert System, and Active Cruise Control (ACC), which also includes the Stop & Go function when combined with the 7-speed DSG dual clutch gearbox. The optional IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist function facilitates assisted steering, braking and acceleration at speeds up to 210 km/h. Predictive cruise control (Predictive ACC) is also available as an option.
