The Tiguan Allspace, boasts up to 760 litres of luggage capacity, and when it is loaded to roof height up to the seatbacks of the first row, its storage capacity is 1,920 litres.
The Tiguan and the new Tiguan Allspace were developed at the same time. Marco Pavone of the Volkswagen Design Team is responsible for the exterior of the Tiguan.”We have designed the rear doors of the Tiguan Allspace to be longer. The bonnet was also raised up at the front above the radiator grille to adapt the proportions to the longer overall length,”says the exterior designer. Pavone goes on to say: “A very unique, formative line accentuates the side window design that rises behind the C-pillar.”
The bonnet and silhouette show deliberate parallels to another new Volkswagen SUV: the Atlas developed for the USA. At the front, there is also the newly designed radiator grille with its chrome trim strips, some of which extend into the headlights and suggest a visual bridge between the Tiguan Allspace and the Atlas. Tiguan Allspace vehicles are all equipped with roof rails as standard.The wheelbase has been expanded from 2,681 to 2,790 mm. The total length of the Tiguan Allspace is 4,701 mm (gain of 215 mm).
Like the standard Tiguan, the new Tiguan Allspace is also launching with front-wheel and all-wheel drive. The front-wheel drive versions of the SUV can manage large trailer loads of up to 2,200 kg (braked on 8 per cent incline) depending on the engine version; in the all-wheel drive, this increases to 2,500 kg.
Six TSI and TDI engines will be offered, three petrol and three diesel. The three turbo charged diesel engines will be available with output levels of 148 bhp, 187 bhp and 237 bhp. All TDI engines are equipped with an SCR catalytic converter and a twelve-litre AdBlue tank to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.
4MOTION and DSG are standard on more powerful models and 4MOTION all-wheel drive including 4MOTION Active Control with driving profile selector is also available as an option in the 148 bhp TDI version.
A special feature of all versions of the all-wheeldrive Tiguan Allspace is 4MOTION Active Control with driving profile selector.The system is operated via an intuitive multifunction switch on the centre console.The driver uses it to activate four higher-level modes and various popup menus. When the rotary switch is turned to the left, one of the two on-road profiles can be activated: Onroad or Snow. When the switch is turned to the right, the two off-road modes are available: Offroad (automatic setting of off-road parameters) or Offroad Individual (variable settings. 4MOTION Active Control adapts all relevant assistance systems to the driving situation in seconds.
