Volkswagen revealed the Tiguan Allspace back at the Auto Expo 2020. The bookings were begun right from the unveil and finally a month later it is now on sale. Basically the Allspace is the plus version or bigger version of already onsale Tiguan. As a result, it has 7-seats and a premium of almost Rs 4 to 5 lakhs over the Tiguan. Let’s see what all features the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace possesses and examine whether it is a good choice.
From the outside, it is really hard to distinguish between the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace, unless and until you observe at the rear portion of the car. It is because the Allspace has extended the rear by almost 30 cm to fit the third-row seats. The headlamp is LED units with LED DRLs but the shape is pretty much basic and quite old design now but still looks decent enough. The SUV comes with massive 18-inch tyres that enhance its looks.
From the rear, it gets LED taillamp units similar to the Tiguan. Observing neatly one will notice that it gets faux dual exhaust vents. Overall, if you loved the design of Tiguan and needs the third-row seats to accommodate your family then you should think of it as an option.
Now anyone who will be looking for this car needs the third-row seats the most for added practicality. However, looking at the competition, it offers slightly less space inside. The SUV comes with latest and competitive features that give it a nice proposition. It features touch screen infotainment that includes smart connectivity app which tells you statistics of your driving. You get various driving modes options and cruise control. The instrument cluster is a fully digital unit and looks mesmerising.
The premium features include a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, multiple ways adjustable driver and front passenger seats, leather upholstery, etc. The safety features include 7-airbags, middle row seat belt, ABS with EBD, tyre pressure monitor.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is offered only with a one engine option which is a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol unit. The engine is a BS6 compliant and produces around 188 bhp max power at 4200 rpm and 320 Nm peak torque at 1500 rpm. The engine is one of the most powerful engines in the segment. It comes mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The SUV gets the paddle shifters to have the quick shift. The SUV is all-wheel-drive so it offers good offroad ability and better ride quality over bad patches due to massive 18-inch wheels.
The Allspace model comes only with a single variant and has an introductory price of Rs 33.13 lakhs(ex-showroom). Overall we can say that Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace offers good package considering the fit-finish quality and structural stability of the vehicle. It competes against the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Honda CR-V.
