In addition to the T-Roc, Volkswagen will launch the Tiguan Allspace in India this year, says a new report from carandbike. The Tiguan Allspace might replace the Tiguan in our market.
The VW Tiguan Allspace is the 7-seat version of the VW Tiguan. While the Honda CR-V has the same length and wheelbase in both 5- and 7-seat versions, the VW Tiguan Allspace has a 215 mm longer body (4,704 mm) and a 110 mm longer wheelbase (2,791 mm). The 5+2 seater offers extra 60 mm of knee room and an additional 115 litres of luggage space (730 litres).
On the sides, the rear window and the quarter glass of the VW Tiguan Allspace are bigger than those of VW Tiguan. The former can be recognised from the front too. Its bonnet and radiator grille have a slightly altered design. The bonnet is set higher and its front has a different contour, and the chrome bars on the radiator grille have been adapted as per these modifications. These changes are inspired by that of the VW Atlas.
Volkswagen is yet to decide whether to continue selling the regular Tiguan in India after the launch of the Tiguan Allspace or not. In case it replaces the former with the latter, it may avoid using the ‘Allspace’ suffix, as there will be only one wheelbase version on sale.
Volkswagen may offer the Tiguan Allspace with the same features and specifications as the Tiguan but without the 4MOTION AWD system, so that it can offer it at a similar price. For reference, the standard wheelbase version costs INR 28,07,000* In the Comfortline grade and INR 31,46,000* in the Highline grade.
