2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace pricing and features announced

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace pricing and features announced

Built in parallel with the regular Tiguan, the 5+2 seat Tiguan Allspace touches down in Australia to round out an updated Tiguan range

VOLKSWAGEN has announced pricing of its newly-introduced seven-seater Tiguan Allspace, which starts from $40,490 before on road costs.

Not only is the Tiguan Allspace physically larger than the regular Tiguan, but the seven-seater will also temporarily be the cheaper option until an entry-level  110TSI regular Tiguan returns to showrooms after WTLP-inflicted production restraints are overcome sometime next year.

Volkswagen expects a majority of Tiguan Allspaces sold will be the top-variant 162TSI Highline – which utilises the 162kW 2.0-litre Golf GTI engine – and believes many of those will opt for the R-Line package.

Differing itself from its closely-related brother, the Tiguan Allspace is distinguished by its wider rear door aperture, raised bonnet line, elongated rear window and, naturally, Allspace badging. The Tiguan Allspace sits on a 109mm longer wheelbase, but the entire vehicle is an extra 215mm longer than the standard Tiguan, measuring in at 4,701mm long.

Two seats fill out the Allspace’s third row and with all the seats up, the boot has 230 litres of space.

You’ll get the same selection of drivetrains as the original Tiguan, which means a choice of three Comfortline engine options and a further two engines should you opt for the Highline specification.

Comfortline grade features either a 110kW/250Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 6-speed DSG and front-wheel drive, while a 132kW/320Nm petrol engine matched to a 7-speed DSG with all-wheel drive is one rung up. A 110kW/340Nm turbo-diesel engine with 7-speed DSG and all-wheel drive is also available at Comfortline level.

But Volkswagen Australia Managing Director Michael Bartsch insists that most buyers will opt for the higher variant grades. “As has been the case with the normal wheelbase Tiguan, the single best-selling Tiguan Allspace variant will be the 162TSI Highline – almost half of overall take up.”

So what’s on offer drivetrain-wise if you opt for Highline specification?

Moving up will afford a choice of two sportier engines –a Golf GTI-derived 162kW/350Nm turbo-petrol engine which includes 7-speed DSG and all-wheel drive, and the 140kW/400Nm turbo-diesel engine with a 7-speed DSG and all-wheel drive.
