If you try to squeeze three adults into the second row, the middle person is likely to feel a bit pinched, but leg room will only be an issue for the tallest of individuals.
If you’re only carrying a couple of passengers behind you, there’s a central armrest with a pair of cupholders to help comfort further. And if you really want to push the boat out, heated rear seats are available, while many models get three-zone climate control to allow those in the back to choose their ideal temperature independently from those in the front.
Isofix child seat fittings are standard for the outer second-row seats, should you plan on carrying small children. Kids may also appreciate the folding tables that are standard on the front seatbacks. These have a groove to hold tablets up, as well as a cupholder.
Where this model differs from the standard Tiguan is the inclusion of an extra third row to offer seven seats in total. However, the two extra seats are only suitable for small children or adults who are prepared to be very uncomfortable on short journeys. The Tiguan Allspace, then, should be approached more as a five-seat SUV with two additional seats for occasional use, rather than a proper seven-seater.
