New Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is Longer than Before
After the major visual and technological update of the Tiguan, the Tiguan Allspace is now next in line – with a sharper look, digital cockpit, as well as new technologies and features.
Its virtues as a spacious SUV remain unchanged with a five/seven seater configuration, and a boot space that stands between 760 to 1,920 litres with 5 seats up, and between 700 and 1,755 litres with 7 seats.
The seats in the third row can be folded like the rear bench seat and backrest in the second row. They can be dropped to fit flush into the luggage compartment floor thus creating an even loading area.
5 engine options
In terms of powertrain options, there are three TSIs and two TDIs engines available. Upon request or depending on the equipment, a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive system can be had.
Due to its redesigned front, the Tiguan Allspace has now grown by 22 mm to a length of 4,723 mm, while interior measurements remain unchanged.
IQ.Light LED Matrix headlights
For the first time, the Tiguan Allspace can now be ordered with IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights, and complementing the system are other new features like the “sweeping” indicator function of the LED turn signals, the redesigned Volkswagen logo, an the illuminated strip in the radiator grille.
According to Volkswagen, the Tiguan Allspace will be available in three trim levels – Life, Elegance, and R-Line.
Firstly, we have the Tiguan Allspace Elegance which features numerous chrome-plated elements in the interior and on the exterior, as well as 19-inch alloy wheels.
The Tiguan Allspace R-Line
Meanwhile, those who want something sportier can order the Tiguan Allspace in the R-Line version. A multifunction leather sports steering wheel with touch operation and R-Line logo, decorative trims in Carbon Grey, Digital Cockpit Pro and 19- or 20-inch wheels are just some of the distinctive features.
When it comes to comfort, the front seats can be ordered in the ergoActive version with electric 4-way lumbar support adjustment and massage function.
New digitalised air-cond control
All air conditioning, heating and ventilation functions of the standard three-zone automatic air conditioner are operated via a new digitalised module in the centre console.
Touch panels and sliders take the place of rotary knobs and buttons. The driver can now also choose to receive information via the full-colour head-up display. It projects driving-related information such as speed, directions and warnings in the driver’s field of vision.
Partly automated driving
Partly automated driving is also available thanks to the IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist that is used for the first time in the Tiguan Allspace.
Depending on the gearbox type, the system can take over steering, braking and acceleration at speeds starting from 0 km/h (with dual clutch gearbox) or 30 km/h (manual gearbox) up to 210 km/h.
To do this, Travel Assist relies on familiar systems including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) for longitudinal guidance, and Lane Assist (fitted as standard) for lateral guidance.
For smart connectivity, the Tiguan Allspace boasts a number of new infotainment systems (new-generation MIB3) that are linked up to a wide range of online services.
Depending on the equipment level, the range of MIB3 systems is supplemented with features such as natural voice control, access to streaming services and cloud-based personalisation via Volkswagen ID. Additionally, apps can now be integrated wirelessly via App-Connect Wireless for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The optional premium sound system that Volkswagen has developed together with Harman Kardon ensures fascinating acoustic experiences. A subwoofer, a digital 16-channel amplifier, 8 plus 1 high-performance loudspeakers and an amplifier with a 480-watt total output provide crystal clear treble and deep, rich bass sounds.
