Is The VW Tiguan Allspace The 7-Seat Compact SUV To Go For?

The Volkswagen Tiguan is very popular. In fact, it’s so appreciated that the car firm came up with a slightly longer version that adds two more seats for a total of seven.

It’s called the VW Tiguan Allspace and it’s 210mm (8.3in) longer than the regular model. Its wheelbase has also been increased by 110mm (4.3in), and with the third-row folded down, you get 700lt (24.7cu-ft) of cargo space.

Users can also fold the second-row, and get a whopping 1,775lt (62.7cu-ft) to haul all sorts of stuff, but with all the seats up, the boot space drops to 115lt (4.1cu-ft). But that’s still pretty good compared to other similar models, as South Africa’s Cars point out in their review.

Now, the only reason anyone would buy a Tiguan Allspace is the increased practicality and extra seats. But the latter might not exactly be the right choice for everyone, as even the company admits that the third-row is more suitable for children.

There are other aspects to consider, too, such as the stiffer (compared to the regular Tiguan) suspension setup. The ride quality is pretty good, according to the reviewer, but not that comfortable on bumpy roads. On the plus side, the handling is sharper.

So, should you go ahead and buy a Tiguan Allspace? If you appreciate the five-seater and want more boot space, along with the two tiny extra seats, then yes, but make sure you take a test drive first.

    Its just a seven seat Skoda Kodiaq with a Volkswagen badge.

      Oh really? I thought it was a slightly longer seat ateca with a vw badge. Now I‘m confused :/

      • ProtectOurHeritage

        VAG products are very confusing! The SEAT Ateca is the same as Volkswagen’s new T-Roc.

        • wintergraan

          That must be witchcraft! What about the upcoming Seat Tarraco? Is it a longer Ateca, a shorter Kodiaq or just a rebadged Tiguan Allspace?

          • ProtectOurHeritage

            Seat Tarraco is a seven seater. Therefore its just like the seven-seat version of the Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace. Its badge engineering at its finest.
