The new Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is now on sale in the UK with exterior styling tweaks, enhanced safety technology and the firm’s new infotainment system. 

Three specification levels are available. The basic Life model kicks off the range from £32,125, the Elegance variant begins at £36,740 and Sport-focused R-Line versions start from £36,710. All specifications offer a selection of three petrol and two diesel engines, ranging between 147bhp and 245bhp. 

Life models are equipped with LED headlights, adaptive cruise control and three-zone climate control as standard, along with front and rear parking sensors and a new 8.0in Discover navigation system. The model also gains the firm’s digital driver’s display as standard for the first time. 

Elegance trim gains bespoke bumpers, a light strip across the front grille, 19in wheels and IQ Light LED matrix headlights. Ambient lighting is added to the interior at this level, as well as microfleece-covered seats and a panoramic sunroof. Elegance trim also brings a reversing camera, a raft of assist systems and keyless entry. 

The Sports-focused R-Line specification adds sports suspension and progressive steering, along with 20in wheels, a rear spoiler, black interior roof liner and comfort sports seats.

Like the five-seat standard car, itself substantially updated last year, the Allspace gains a redesigned front end that incorporates a more prominent grille with illuminated strips and a redesigned Volkswagen emblem.

Volkswagen has updated the SUV’s headlights, adding new interactive IQ Light LED lights to follow in the footsteps of the standard Tiguan. First used by Volkswagen in its other, more luxurious SUV, the Touareg, these comprise 24 individual LED diodes that can adjust, partly automatically, to different driving conditions.

The IQ Drive Travel Assist system is also new for the facelifted Tiguan Allspace, providing level two autonomous driving assist functions at speeds of up to 130mph.

Back to top

Carrying on the updates to the inside, Volkswagen has worked with audio specialist Harman Kardon to develop a new top-rung sound system. The Allspace is also the latest Volkswagen model to receive the firm's new climate control system with touch panels and sliders.

The petrol engines on offer continue to be a 148bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels and a pair of 2.0-litre four-cylinder units that send 187bhp or 242bhp to both axles. A pair of 2.0-litre diesels remain available as well, sending either 148bhp to the front or 197bhp to all four wheels.

Although Volkswagen recently introduced a plug-in hybrid variant for the standard Tiguan, as well as a 316bhp high-performance R version – joining the larger Touareg R as part of its performance division’s rapidly expanding line-up – it will not offer either variants for the Allspace.

Goes on sale but you'll have to wait at least 7 months at the moment (and getting worse), as we found out trying to order a new Volkswagen.

@cobnapint, the Allspace is VW's version to the Skoda Kodiaq or Seat Terraca and can have 7 seats. The notsomuchspace is 5 seats and same as the Ateca and Kantrememberwhattheskodaversionisq

Tiguan Allspace? Never heard of it - but now I have, I'm intrigued as to what makes it an Allspace over a NotsomuchSpace, but the article doesn't tell me, when it easily could.
I know all about it's infotainment though.....
