VW Tiguan Allspace 7 seater vs VW Tiguan 5 seater comparison

March 03, 2017 by

VW has revealed the seven-seat Tiguan Allspace that builds on the practical platform underpinning the five-seat Tiguan. We put the two cars side-by-side to help you choose the one best suited to your needs. For all images, the seven-seat Allspace is on the left while the five-seat conventional Tiguan is on the right.

VW Tiguan Allspace vs VW Tiguan styling

Very little has changed on the Allspace compared to the regular model. The extra length is visually hidden by a redesigned back door and new rear window. The overall design and good looks of the Tiguan have remained so only keen VW enthusiasts will spot the difference.

VW Tiguan Allspace vs VW Tiguan interior

The most notable feature of the Allspace is the addition of two extra rear seats and an additional 115-litres of boot space. This latter figure brings the total to 730 litres in five-seat mode and a giant 1,770 litres with all but the front seats folded. Apart from this, the interior remains essentially identical to the standard Tiguan.

You get an eight-inch, centrally mounted infotainment screen that can be upgraded to feature a more advanced sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also pick a 12.3-inch Active Info display – a system similar to Audi’s Virtual Cockpit that transforms the instrument cluster into a large screen that can display sat-nav and other driving information, lending the cabin an upmarket feel.

VW Tiguan Allspace vs VW Tiguan engines

Both cars are offered with a choice of three petrol engines producing 148hp, 178hp or 217hp as well as three diesel units with 148hp, 187hp and 238hp. Entry-level 148hp engines are limited to front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox, while all other models get the option of four-wheel drive and a DSG automatic gearbox.

VW Tiguan Allspace vs VW Tiguan prices

Allspace models will probably demand a premium over standard five-seat models. We expect it to cost from approximately £27,000 to more than £40,000 for range-topping R-Line models.

Entry-level Tiguan 1.4-litre models with a manual gearbox will cost you £23,140. If you want a more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine and DSG auto, you’ll have to pay £29,540 while top-of-the-range 2.0-litre models are priced at £37,080.
