Allspace Equals More Space
The Allspace lives up to its name, because it’s bigger than the standard Tiguan model – almost 22 centimetres longer and just shy of 11 centimetres wider. Fitted with five seats as standard, the vehicle sees an increase in legroom for second-row occupants. Boot volume has expanded too, from the smaller Tiguan’s 615 litres to 760 litres. Owners can use the extra room to include an optional third row of seats, which makes the vehicle particularly suitable for larger families. These additional seats, when folded, are absorbed within the luggage compartment. In seven-seat mode, cargo capacity ranges from 230 litres to 700 litres (third row folded). With all but the front seats flipped, there’s 1,920 litres of load space to play with.
Protecting You and Your Family
The standard Tiguan model has already been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash test rating, which bodes well for the Allspace. An array of driver aids and passive safety features come as standard with this larger sibling. Included is Automatic Emergency Braking, which significantly reduces the chances of rear-end collision at low speeds. Lane-keeping Assist features too, monitoring the progress of the vehicle and alerting the driver if it ever starts to move out of your intended lane. The usual stability and traction control systems are included, as are passive safety features such as multiple airbags.
All models feature an eight-inch infotainment screen, which is located on the centre console, and at a level that makes it very easy for the driver to view and operate. The car’s sound system comes with DAB radio as standard, providing a wide range of stations in crystal clear sound quality. Bluetooth connectivity features too, enabling audio streaming from compatible media devices, and allowing the driver to make and receive hands-free calls. Smartphone mirroring comes in the form of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easy for the driver to safely access apps, phone contacts and much more.
Higher spec variants also feature Volkswagen’s Active Info Display (AID), which is positioned behind the steering wheel. AID takes the place of old-fashioned dials, while also providing, among other things, satellite navigation data.
