Size matters – or at least it does for family SUV buyers. So although the five-seat Tiguan can already be considered a resounding sales success, Volkswagen is looking to exploit its popularity by adding this bigger variant with two extra seats.
In total, 215mm has been added between the front and rear wheels of the standard Tiguan to help accommodate seven seats. Along with the extra space, the Tiguan Allspace also a slightly different front-end design and roof rails as standard.
Aside from that, it’s much the same as the five-seat version. It's even mechanically unchanged, with a similar range of petrol and diesel engines as the standard Tiguan. It’s only available in three high-spec trims – they come with plenty of kit but it does mean that the Tiguan Allspace looks expensive compared with seven-seat rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Peugeot 5008.
