Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace has been teased by the automaker itself ahead of the 2017 Detroit auto show unveil revealing almost nothing expect photos and little wheelbase information.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is a larger variant of the Volkwagen Tiguan with the wheelbase stretched by 4.3 inches and offering seating arrangement for seven people. Reports previously have indicated that the compact crossover will be known as “Tiguan Allspace” in Europe and just Tiguan in the U.S. and China. This means that the crossover will replace the existing Tiguan outside of its home market.
With official details sparse, let’s look at what leaks and reports have been telling us about the Tiguan Allspace. Like the Tiguan, the Tiguan Allspace will be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The 2.0-liter engine will be sending power to either the front or all four wheels depending on the option you go for through the automaker’s eight-speed automatic transmission.
There have been reports about a possible diesel variant as well as a plug-in hybrid variant, but considering the emissions cheating scandal we don’t expect Volkswagen to release a diesel variant in US at least. As for the plug-in hybrid it remains to be seen how true these rumours are.
As far as launch in other markets is concerned, there is no word on when the car will arrive in the UK, Canada or Australia. Chances are that the Tiguan Allspace will be released in Canada along with the US and in the UK along with the European launch. Australia will most likely get the Tiguan Allspace in 2018, but that’s also a speculation as the company hasn’t officially revealed any dates.
