And that’s exceedingly good news if you need an affordable and attractive lease vehicle for the entire family.
The Tiguan Allspace is a beefed-up version of the regular Tiguan SUV, coming with a longer wheelbase and a third row of seats to accommodate more passengers.
It’’s a vehicle with an impressive 700 litres of luggage space with the rearmost two seats flat, and 1,755 litres available with both rear rows laid down.
It’s now been given an update that introduces new design flourishes, including LED headlights and daytime running lights, as well as increased levels of tech and driver assistance systems.
Volkswagen says the facelift means the Tiguan Allspace is now more practical than ever before.
Sarah Cox, Head of Marketing at Volkswagen UK, reveals:
“The Tiguan Allspace is another practicality-packed SUV from Volkswagen, continuing the model’s goal of providing enough room for all the family, and their luggage. On top of this, it has the connectivity, technology and quality to face up to every challenge a family could throw at it. With this enhancement, it has even more convenience, safety and assistance features, while maintaining the practicality and Volkswagen quality that families love.”
There are three different versions available - entry-level Life, comfort-oriented Elegance, and range-topping, sporty R-Line.
The range of factory-fit equipment across the three Tiguan Allspace specifications is generous, with even the base Life trim featuring LED headlights and daytime running lights, Adaptive Cruise Control, 3-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and an 8.0-inch Discover navigation system with App-Connect as standard, allowing mirroring of compatible smartphones on the infotainment display via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Tiguan Allspace Life also gets VW’s Digital Cockpit Pro as standard.
Moving up to Elegance trim, lease customers can expect distinct bumpers, a light strip in the front grille between the headlights and Volkswagen badge and a set of 19-inch 'Auckland' Dark Graphite alloy wheels, alongside IQ.Light LED Matrix headlights.
Inside, the seats are finished in ‘Art Velours’ microfleece and you’ll also enjoy a panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting with 30 colour options.
The Elegance trim also adds a reversing camera, Side Assist, Rear Traffic Alert and Park Assist systems, as well as a sensor control function for the tailgate for when you’ve got your hands full.
The swanky R-Line cars get 20-inch 'Misano' alloy wheels, different bumpers, a rear spoiler, an uprated interior, and - perhaps most importantly - a sportier suspension set up for more spirited driving.
There’s also the addition of even more driver assistance tech, including Travel Assist, Lane Assist and Emergency Assist.
When it comes to power, there’s a good choice of petrol and diesel engines available, depending on which trim level you go for, with the most powerful motors reserved for the Elegance and R-Line vehicles.
With an Elegance Tiguan Allspace you can go for the attractive 2.0 TSI 190 PS petrol mill, which is twinned with VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system and will see you accelerating from 0-62mph in just 7.7 seconds while still returning 32mpg.
The most powerful of the bunch, meanwhile, is the 2.0 TSI 245 4Motion petrol available in R-Line spec, which reduces the 0-62mph dash time to just 6.2 seconds.
The new Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is on sale now.
