Back in February, VW fancied us with some pretty exciting reveals like the race-spec Polo and the BS-6 compliant powerhouses. One thing that took everyone’s attention was the all-new Tiguan. Things seemed pretty normal until we realized that these Tiguans will be directly imported from the European market. The updated import norms in India now allows a company to import 2,500 completely-built-up (CBUs) in this country. Volkswagen decided to introduce Allspace in the Indian market benefiting from this norm.
Volkswagen is the parent company of Skoda and Audi and new Tiguans will be available in limited numbers. Available at a price tag of INR 33.12 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India), Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is now 5 lakhs more expensive than its predecessor. There are very minute tweaks in overall exterior styling, the addition of 215mm in length, 110mm longer wheelbase which why there is an addition of a third-row seat.
The list of gadgets in this European delicacy is long such as full-LED headlights with DRLs, a panoramic sunroof, full-digital instrument cluster, three-zone automatic climate control, hands-free boot opening, beige ‘Vienna’ leather seats, keyless entry, a touchscreen infotainment system and eight speakers. Safety kit includes seven airbags, ABS, Electronic Stability Control, a tire pressure monitoring system, Isofix child seat mounts, an electronic parking brake, and a reverse camera.
Powering this SUV is a 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine that produces 190hp of power and 320Nm of torque. Smoothening the sharp corners is the addition of a 7-speed DSG gearbox that power all the four-wheels in this SUV.
Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is available in 6 colours orange, red, white, black, grey and blue.
