The Tiguan Allspace is only available in three high-spec trims. That means you get plenty of equipment, but you have to pay a lot for it. Spec for spec, the Allspace model is around £2000 more expensive than the five-seat Tiguan. For that money, you get a usefully bigger boot, but two extra seats that you won’t want to use too often. Compared with rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Peugeot 5008, though, the Tiguan Allspace is very expensive.
The good news is that it holds its value very well, meaning the overall cost of ownership is less than some cheaper rivals. It also means PCP costs are very competitive. If you are watching the pennies, we’d stick to the two-wheel-drive models because running costs will be lower.
Automatic versions are, typically, slightly dirtier and less economical, yet command a hefty premium. Volkswagen offers a three-year/30,000-mile fixed-price servicing scheme that should help with budgeting.
