With no mechanical differences from the standard Tiguan, the Tiguan Allspace offers a very similar driving experience.
The best-selling Tiguan Allspace is the 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel model (badged 2.0 TDI 150) and it's easy to see why: it offers a fine blend of performance and fuel economy. There's also a 2.0 TDI 190 engine that delivers plenty of punch but is rather pricey, while the range-topping 2.0 BiTDI 240 unit brings yet more pace for an even more eyebrow-raising price.
If you’re more interested in petrol power, there’s a 1.4 TSI 150 engine that is the cheapest in the line-up but lacks the low-rev pulling power of the diesels.
As for the 2.0-litre petrol engine, the TSI 180, feels quick but needs a few revs to perform its best. Again, it lacks the in-gear flexibility of the diesels.
