Watch: VW gives the Tiguan Allspace comprehensive tech updates
On May 12, Volkswagen premiered the updated Tiguan Allspace for Europe and packed the long-wheelbase SUV with comprehensive technological features.
Check out the “dubbed” digital premiere here.
Following the update of the Tiguan last year, its bigger brother—the Allspace—now gets its turn to be treated to a suite of equipment and aesthetic upgrades.
Exterior-wise, the Tiguan Allspace enjoys a sharper look with a refreshed front fascia featuring an independent radiator grille and elegant signature light. It will also feature the “sweeping” indicator function of the LED turn signals. The redesigned VW logo will also sport an illuminated strip on either side of the radiator grille. In addition, the Tiguan Allspace can now be ordered with IQ.Light LED matrix headlights — a first in the model.
The Tiguan Allspace also grew in length, now 4,723mm, 22mm longer than its previous model.
In Germany, VW offers the Tiguan Allspace with three equipment packages: Life, Elegance, and R-Line.
The Life trim level offers a leather multifunctional steering wheel, silver anodized roof rails, an electric tailgate, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. The Elegance package adds a slew of chrome-plated elements in the interior and on the exterior with 19-inch alloy wheels. On the other hand, the R-Line version adds an element of sportiness to the Tiguan Allspace with a multifunctional leather sports steering wheel with touch operation and R-Line logo, decorative trims in carbon gray, VW’s Digital Cockpit Pro, and your choice of either 19- or 20-inch wheels.
Part of the interior upgrades includes ergoActive version front seats with an electric four-way lumbar support adjustment and massage function. Climate control can now be operated via a new digitalized module in the center console. Gone are the rotary knobs and buttons, which have been replaced with touch panels and sliders.
To boost the Tiguan Allpsace’s safety features, VW’s SUV now gives drivers the option to choose to receive information via the full-color head-up display where driving-related information can be displayed in the driver’s field of vision such as speed, directions, and warnings.
Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive Travel Assist is now also added in the driving-assist features of the Tiguan Allspace. Depending on the chosen gearbox, the system can partially control driving and take over steering, braking, and acceleration at certain speeds.
The Tiguan Allspace is also outfitted with smart connectivity features including Volkswagen’s Online Connectivity Unit (OCU) with integrated eSIM. This technology allows users to benefit from the online services of We Connect and We Connect Plus.
Depending on the equipment level, the range of MIB3 systems may come with features such as natural voice control, access to streaming services, and cloud-based personalization via Volkswagen ID. In addition, apps can now be integrated wirelessly via App-Connect Wireless for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Entertainment amenities include an optional premium sound system that VW developed with Harman Kardon. It features a subwoofer, a digital 16-channel amplifier, 8+1 high-performance loudspeakers, and an amplifier with 480-watt total output.
