However, unlike its main competitors who benefit from seven seats on the French market, with the exception of the entry-level model of the Kodiaq, the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace offers the two additional folding seats. Thus, in simple configuration 5 passengers, it also places itself as a competitor of the Renault Koleos or Toyota Rav-4.
For the rest, it does rather in the copied-pasted. It includes the same finishes (Trendline, Comfortline and Highline) and the most powerful engines of the Tiguan. Three gasoline blocks (1.4 TSI 150 hp and 2.0 TSI 180 and 220 hp) and three diesel engines (2.0 TDI 150, 190 and 240 hp) are thus in the program. The 4Motion all-wheel drive and the DSG double-clutch automatic gearbox are standard, except on the 150hp versions.
Prudent, Volkswagen does not announce a capacity of 7 seats but indeed 5 + 2 places. A shade signifying, in a word, the presence of booster seats in the trunk and not seats comparable to those in the second row. The third row is available as an option in some markets, but in France all Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace will be mandatorily delivered in 7 places.
A total volume of 1920 l is obtained by folding down the seats. On the other hand, there will remain only 230 l with 7 people on board. Under the hood is the Tiguan’s catalog with the 1.4 TSI 150 hp, 2.0 TSI 180 hp and 220 hp, and the 2.0 TDI of 150, 190 and 240 hp. Except in 150 hp, the all-wheel drive and DSG are standard.
