Introduction

What Car? says...

Sorry to disappoint you, but regardless of what you might hear, size matters – or at least it does for family SUV buyers. So although the five-seat Volkswagen Tiguan family SUV can already be considered a resounding sales success, Volkswagen is looking to exploit its popularity by adding a bigger SUV variant with two extra seats for that added dose of practicality. Cue the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, which gets an extra shot of steroids to give it that fully grown-up touch.

In total, 215mm has been added between the front and rear wheels of the standard Tiguan to help accommodate seven seats, while adding some extra boot space when the third row is folded. Along with this increase in scale, the Allspace also has a slightly different front-end design and roof rails as standard to set it aside from the common or garden five-seater.

Both versions are much the same below the surface, the Allspace is offering a similar range of petrol and diesel engines as the standard Tiguan. It’s only available in three high-spec trims, though – Match, SEL and R-line Tech. All come with plenty of kit, but this does mean the Tiguan Allspace looks expensive compared with seven-seat rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Peugeot 5008.

But is the Tiguan Allspace a good car? Read on over the next few pages to find out how it compares with the regular Tiguan, and if the extra row of seats is worth the extra cost. And, when you’re convinced which way to go, don’t forget to take a look at our New Car Buying pages to see how much you could save without the bother of haggling.
