We recently attended the local launch of the new Tiguan AllSpace in KZN, Durban.
As hard as it is to tell the differences between the normal Tiguan and the AllSpace, the Tiguan Allspace closes the gap between the compact Tiguan and the premium class Touareg.
It is seven seats big and the increase in dimensions means more space too.
The wheelbase is 110 mm longer, and now measures 2,791 mm.
The vehicle’s total length has increased by 215 mm to 4,701 mmwhich make the Tiguan Allspace a space giant among SUVs of its class.
The increase in wheelbase and total vehicle length makes the Tiguan Allspace a supremely spacious car that offers an extra 60 mm of knee room for rear passengers and an additional 115 litres of cargo volume.. This third row transforms the Tiguan into an extremely versatile 7 seater.
When not in use, the third row of seats can be folded down and integrated in the cargo floor.
There’s a 230 litre boot behind the third row. Fold the third row seats flat and the boot space increases to 700 litres, fold the second row flat and you have 1,775 litres of boot space.
The cargo space length is then 1,921 mm – enough space even for surfboards.
Available in three trim levels, Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. They all offer standard equipment.
Lookout for our driving impressions story on the next Citizen’s Motoring suppliment issue on Wednesday next week.
