VOLKSWAGEN has unveiled a longer Allspace version of its popular Tiguan SUV, with the option of seven seats in three rows in the car's extended cabin.
Currently, more than half of the Tiguan that rolls off the production line worldwide have a long wheelbase.
The XL version of the Tiguan Allspace can, upon request, be fitted to become an SUV with seven seats or adapt to 1,920 litres of storage space. Pre-sales start in the next few weeks. Since the start of production of the long version in 2017, around 1.5 million units of the long-wheelbase version (LWB) have been sold worldwide.
The long version offered in Europe as the Tiguan Allspace is optionally available with a third row of seats - a rare specification option in this segment.
After the major visual and technological update of the Tiguan, the Tiguan Allspace is now next in line - with a sharper look, digital cockpit, new technologies, new equipment matrix and comprehensive connectivity.
VW says Its virtues as a spacious SUV remain unchanged: with a five-seat configuration, it offers a luggage compartment volume of 760 to 1,920 litres, with the seven-seater offering 700 to 1,755 litres.
The optional seats in the third row can be folded like the rear bench seat and backrest in the second row. They can be dropped to fit flush into the luggage compartment floor, creating an even loading area.
There are three TSIs and two TDIs engines available. Upon request or depending on the equipment, a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox ensures fast, efficient gear changes and the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive offers optimum traction.
