Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace
Volkswagen 2018 Tiguan Allspace
3 Aug 2018
In mid 2018, Volkswagen launched the Allspace version of the Tiguan.
Maintaining the same powertrains as the Tiguan short wheelbase, key visual differences included 215mm of extra length (to 4701mm), a corresponding wheelbase stretch (by 109mm to 2790mm), and completely different bodywork aft of the B-pillar that brings with it wider rear doors and C-pillar side glass as well as 106mm of more rear overhang.
Moreover, a raised bonnet (to make the SUV more aggressive-looking for the US market, which only takes the Allspace version in both five and seven-seater set-ups) and more chrome in the grille were also applied. Weight penalties are in the region of 130kg-plus, give or take.
