2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace local range and features

Volkswagen Australia has announced its seven-seat Tiguan line-up

Volkswagen Australia has confirmed local pricing and specifications for its seven-seat Tiguan Allspace, a key model in the German car maker’s SUV expansion plans

While it shares a name and is developed alongside VW’s popular Tiguan mid-size SUV, the Tiguan Allspace is a bigger, more premium offering with its 215mm extra length resulting in a cavernous 760-litre rear cargo compartment that can be used to add two more seats.

Powertrains match the smaller Tiguan’s range, with a choice of three turbocharged petrol and two turbo diesel engines.  The two models differ in terms of trim levels though, with the Allspace forgoing the Tiguan’s entry-level Trendline spec, starting with the more premium Comfortline, that's priced from $40,490 and comes standard with:  

  • Front Assist with low-speed auto emergency braking
  • Pedestrian monitoring
  • Lane Assist
  • Park Assist
  • Multi-collision braking
  • Reversing camera
  • Front and rear parking sensors  
  • Powered tailgate
  • 8.0-inch multimedia screen
  • Satellite navigation
  • 4MOTION Active Control drive modes (4MOTION AWD models)
  • LED headlights 
  • Keyless entry and start
  • 18-inch Kingston alloy wheels
  • Electric folding exterior mirrors
  • Dusk-sensing headlights
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Tri-zone climate control  
  • Front fog lights

Allspace Comfortline is divided into 110TSI front-wheel-drive with six-speed DSG transmission, 132TSI turbocharged petrol, and 110TDI turbo diesel all-wheel-drive variants, with seven-speed DSG.  

Moving up to the Highline spec, priced from $52,990, brings more powerful engines including the Golf GTI-derived 162TSI (162kW/350Nm) turbocharged petrol engine and the 140 TDI turbo diesel – each of have the seven-speed DSG sending power to all four wheels.

 Highline features over and above the Comfortline include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Side Assist with rear-traffic alert
  • Lane Assist with Adaptive Lane Guidance
  • Emergency Assist and Traffic Jam Assist
  • Adaptive chassis control
  • Dynamic Light Assist

  • Electrically adjustable front seats with memory function 
  • Heated front, and outer second row seats
  • Vienna leather-trimmed upholstery 
  • 9.2-inch infotainment screen
  • Ambient interior lighting 
  • Premium LED tail-lights

Option packs include the Driver Assistance and Luxury Packages which bring some Highline options to Comfortline; and a Sound and Vision Package for both variants that adds VW’s excellent digital dashboard display, premium sound system and surround-view camera.

Meanwhile, the R-Line Package ($2900) adds some athleticism to the Highline’s appearance with: 

  • R-Line bumpers and side sills
  • Black rear spoiler
  • 20-inch Suzuka alloy wheels
  • R-Line black Vienna leather seats
  • Brushed stainless steel pedals
  • R-Line steering wheels with paddles
  • Black headliner
  • R-Line aluminium scuff plates

Six colours are available including Pure White, Platinum Grey Metallic, Deep Black Pear Effect, White Silver Metallic, Blue Silk Metallic and Ruby Red Metallic. 

The Tiguan Allspace will be launched locally in July.
