Are the extra seats worth the price? Ntsako Mthethwa finds out.

South Africa is a country that does not say no to SUVs.

Therefore, every manufacturer seems to have an SUV in its model lineup. It makes sense to have Volkswagen introduce the new Tiguan Allspace after its seven-seater Touran was discontinued in SA a few years ago.


The Tiguan Allspace fills the gap between the normal Tiguan and the Touareg.

Although it may look the same as the normal Tiguan, it is a different car.

The Allspace has grown in size, which resulted in improved head, boot and legroom.

Wheelbase is 110mm longer, and now measures 2 791mm and the vehicle’s total length has increased by 215 mm to 4 701mm.


With that, you get an extra 60mm of knee room for the rear passengers and an improved bootspace. With the third row of seats raised, boot space is kept at 230 litres, but you can fold the third and second row of seats if you need to.

Fold the third row seats flat, and the bootspace increases to 700 litres, then fold the second row flat, and you have 1 775 litres of bootspace.
