After the Volkswagen Tiguan’s update back in autumn 2020, the German OEM has now upgraded the long-wheelbase version of the vehicle, the Allspace.
Having started production of a ‘long’ version in 2017, Volkswagen has since sold 1.5 million units. The vehicle offers an optional third row of seats, which has proved popular in Europe.
Available in specification packages Life, Elegance and R-Line, the Tiguan Allspace now features interior updates such as a digital cockpit, new interior technologies, a new equipment matrix and comprehensive connectivity for its occupants. With a five-seat configuration as standard, the vehicle offers a luggage compartment volume of 760 to 1,920 liters; the seven-seat version has a volume of 700 to 1,755 liters.
If selected, the third row of seats can be folded flat, dropping flush into the luggage compartment floor to give the Allspace an even larger loading area.
All of the air-conditioning, heating and ventilation functions of the standard three-zone automatic air-conditioner are operated via a newly installed digital module in the center console. Touch panels and sliders have replaced the more traditional knobs and buttons. A full-color head-up display now projects driving-related information such as speed, directions and warnings into the driver’s view.
In terms of connectivity, the Tiguan Allspace offers a range of updated infotainment systems with online connectivity options. An online connectivity unit (OCU) with integrated eSIM allows users to benefit from an array of online services. Depending on the equipment level, the range of infotainment systems includes features such as voice control, access to streaming services and cloud-based personalization via Volkswagen ID. Furthermore, apps can now be integrated wirelessly via App-Connect Wireless for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
