VW Tiguan Allspace Range Overview

Experience more with the Tiguan Allspace as your ride. Get out there with your family and enjoy some larger-than-life adventures. Read our Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace review to learn more about all this large and in charge SUV with seven seats has to offer.

If you are not familiar with the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace, we’ll clarify for you: the Allspace is the older sibling of the standard Tiguan. It is larger than the standard Tiguan – where the Tiguan is equipped with five seats, arranged in two rows, the Allspace is a seven-seat SUV, with a third row of seats. This makes it the perfect solution for those who are looking to fit their close friends or household into a spacious and comfortable SUV. Cross country road trips will never be the same again.

The Tiguan Allspace is so much more than the technologically advanced, beautiful SUV it appears to be – it’s a car that’s ready to hit the open road and venture off the beaten path. It’s the embodiment of the spirit of adventure and will go wherever the path may lead. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an equally versatile and eye-catching vehicle of this size, that’s able to meet all of your lifestyle’s demands.

VW Tiguan Allspace Performance & Drive

Don’t let its size fool you: even with the added length to accommodate seven seats, it is surprisingly easy to drive in the city or around town. The car’s light steering, combined with its large windows and raised driving position, gives you a good view of the road, making it much easier to manoeuvre out of tight spaces. What Car? writes in their review that “[t]he Tiguan Allspace handles more like a conventional hatchback than many of its SUV rivals; it’s genuinely enjoyable to drive.”

You’ll barely feel any bumps on the road, even as you escape the urban jungle. A lack of grip and excessive body lean won’t be problems either so you can take on twisting country roads with confidence. All models offer you plenty of grip but those equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive technology do offer a little more traction when driving in slippery conditions. Road and wind noise is kept to a minimum when driving along the motorway, so you can keep the conversation flowing or listen to music without having to strain your ears.

Tiguan Allspace Load & Passenger Space

With the third row of seats, plus the roomier boot, there’s heaps of space for passengers to pack their bags and join you on your next adventure. The third row is ideal for accommodating kids and shorter adults (those under 1.60 m). The seats in the front and the middle row can accommodate taller individuals than the back row.

Compared to the standard Tiguan, the middle row of seats in the Allspace is much more spacious and far easier to get comfortable in, as the car’s body is longer. As for the seats in the front, you’ll find they can be adjusted in a range of ways, so body aches and pains during long drives won’t be a problem anymore.

You can also fold down the Allspace’s rearmost seats and the luggage capacity increases to 760 litres. If you need even more luggage space, fold down all rear seats to free up to 1920 litres of space.

In terms of style, the cabin can be summed up as the height of ‘contemporary urban refinement.’ The Allspace’s interior is user-friendly as all buttons, dials and knobs are located within reach, plus they feel solid when used.

Safety & Technology In Tiguan Allspace

Allspace Technology

Step inside the Allspace and you’ll soon come to realise that it’s a lovely place for a driver and passengers, thanks to its incredible comfort, sleek design and heaps of space for people, as well as luggage.

Mat Watson hit the nail on the head with this comparison in his Carwow review: “The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is a bit like a Tiguan that’s bought itself a designer backpack – it’s quite a bit more practical but without compromising on style.”

Overall, the dashboard is uncluttered, making it a breeze to find whatever you’re looking for. The standard 8-inch infotainment system touchscreen is crystal clear and angled slightly towards the driver for ease of use.
