Just like every other car manufacturer, Volkswagen hopes it might make an impression with the new Tiguan Allspace – set to be launched during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
We thought it might be a good time to talk about the Tiguan Allspace before it gets overshadowed by the hypercars and the supercars that will make their way into the 2017 Geneva.
The main purpose of the Tiguan Allspace was to close the market gap between the current Touareg and the Tiguan, with an added 109mm in wheelbase and 215mm in length with an additional seven seat configuration option. Besides that, it’s standard Tiguan all through.
As the name suggests, the Tiguan Allspace is “all space”. Space for everything you might expect especially when you don’t tick the seven-seat option with 1920-litres of space in the back. Take your family on a road trip, and the last thing they would complain about is the need for more space.
Engines on the Tiguan Allspace range from the 148-bhp petrol to the 237-bhp diesel both mated to a DSG transmission and AWD as standard on mid-spec equipped cars. Entry levels come with front wheel drive.
Prices start at €30,000 for a well equipped seven seater Tiguan Allspace – for those of you who prefer a good spacious German family SUV, this might seem like the sensible choice for around £30k.
As for us in the GCC, chances are the Allspace might make it but that’s not certain seeing how the competition is stacked and the seven-seater segment is dominated by a few cars.
