The Tiguan Allspace is expensive. It’s 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.
It should hold its value well, though, and running costs are low on two-wheel-drive models, especially those with a diesel engine.
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, which should help with budgeting.
