Tiguan: an ample basis. The new version of the Tiguan Allspace will make its début in 2021 with newly configured equipment lines. With its wide range of comfort features, the entry-level equipment line for the European market is an attractive option. These include 17-inch surface-treated alloy wheels, the Light & Sight package, high-quality décor options and seat covers, roof railing in Black and a robust underbody protection panel in Silver.
Life: that certain something. The first equipment line available in Germany is called Life. A boot lid with electric opening and closing, a full-colour 8-inch touchscreen, a leather multifunction steering wheel and gear knob, Digital Cockpit Pro with a 10.25-inch (26 cm) TFT colour display, side airbags for the outer seats in the second row, roof railings with an anodised finish in Silver, comfort seats, a range of assist systems, 18-inch aluminium wheels – all this comes as standard. The exterior mirror housing has silver paintwork, whilst the bumper is in the body colour with lower sections in Black. The front passenger seat backrest can be completely folded down to allow for flexible loading. Drawers under the front seats provide practical additional storage space. Two USB-C ports at the front and the mobile phone interface make it easy to integrate smartphones. And there are eight loudspeakers to ensure excellent sound quality whether when making phone calls or listening to music.
Elegance: arrive in style. Interior and exterior chrome trim, 19-inch Victoria Falls alloy wheels, illuminated sill panel trims in the door openings, a heated multifunction leather steering wheel with paddles, high-comfort front seats with height adjusters and a heating function – with this top-of-the-range equipment line, the Tiguan Allspace is the picture of elegance. The 30-colour background lighting is fitted as standard and allows the interior to look a little different every day to suit the mood of driver and passengers. The Easy Open & Close function enables sensor-controlled opening and closing of the boot lid operated by a foot movement. IQ.LIGHT – LED matrix headlights with LED daytime running lights, cornering light, dynamic turn signals and Dynamic Light Assist for matrix LED headlights all come as standard, ensuring optimum illumination of the road without dazzling road users driving ahead or oncoming traffic.
R-Line: sporty to the max. A multifunction leather sports steering wheel with touch control and R Line logo, decorative trim in Carbon Grey, stainless steel pedals and foot rests, exclusive 19-inch Valencia alloy wheels, bumpers with R styling including sill extensions and rear spoiler, black wheel housing extensions, sports seats with ArtVelours seat bolsters and textile floor mats with decorative seams – the R-Line effortlessly combines style and dynamism. The optional Black Style exterior stands out from the other equipment lines thanks to the black louvres in its radiator grille and front bumper, among other features. The wheels are optionally available as 20-inch versions.
Optional features. More is more. Volkswagen has put together a comprehensive range of optional equipment as well as design and equipment packages for the new Tiguan Allspace, allowing customers to increase comfort and convenience in accordance with their individual needs. For example, both driver and front passenger can opt for ergoActive seats which provide electric 4-way lumbar support adjustment and a massage function. Customers can also choose to order a tilting panoramic sunroof measuring 870 mm x 1,364 mm – one of the largest in this vehicle class. Those who opt for voice control in their vehicle can, for example, change radio stations using voice commands. The optional Vienna leather package offers the luxurious experience of perforated seats, with seat heating for both the driver and the front passenger. The full-colour head-up display shows driving-related information such as speed, directions and warnings in the driver’s field of vision. The adaptive chassis control DCC(standard in 180-kW TSI) ensures a fine-tuned balance between comfort and dynamics whilst driving. The Trailer Assist system supports the driver when manoeuvring a trailer: they simply select reverse gear, press the park button and choose the direction in which the trailer should move. They can then take their hands off the wheel, and only need to operate the accelerator and brakes and monitor the surrounding area – Trailer Assist takes care of the rest.
Driving profile selection at your fingertips. Using the driving profile selection feature, the driver of the Tiguan Allspace can adjust the drive, steering and gearshift (DSG) to meet their personal preferences or the current road situation. There are six different profiles that can be selected by tapping the screen. Eco supports fuel-efficient driving, Comfort provides for a relaxed driving experience even on poor road surfaces, Normal is the preset for everyday driving, Sport facilitates sporty driving at the appropriate rpm, Offroad is the ideal profile for adventures on unpaved roads, and for those who want to configure their driving profile themselves, there is the Individual option.
Safety features. Every Tiguan Allspace is equipped with comprehensive safety features as standard, providing the best possible protection for passengers and other road users. Among these features are side airbags for the outer seats in the second seat row including side airbags at the front, a curtain airbag system and knee airbags on the driver and front passenger sides. The front passenger front airbag can be deactivated. The seats are equipped with a three-point automatic seat belt with belt tensioner (not available for the central rear seat). ISOFIX retaining rings ensure that two child restraint systems can be securely attached to the rear seats. The whiplash-optimised head restraints at the front can be adjusted for height and recline angle. There is no need to register for the Emergency Call Service; the service is already activated when the customer receives their vehicle. The electronic driving safety systems fitted as standard include: Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with counter steering assistance, anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control system (ASR), electronic differential lock (EDS), engine drag torque control (MSR) and trailer stabilisation. The electromechanical steering adjusts according to the speed at which the vehicle is travelling: the lower the speed, the easier it is to turn the steering wheel. As the car speeds up, the steering feel becomes more direct.
