Volkswagen Tiguan


Volkswagen's second best-selling model in Australia is the mid-sized Tiguan, a handsome offering in the brutally competitive mid-sized SUV segment that remains Australia's favourite segment. 

The current Volkswagen Tiguan SUV arrived for 2017, riding Volkswagen's MQB architecture and offering a range of turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The turbo-diesels are gone now, leaving three petrol mills ranging from 110kW of power to 162kW.

There's a choice of front- or all-wheel drive, while those buyers seeking extra space can opt for the longer, three-row Tiguan Allspace.

Tiguan Allspace:

Launched here in 2018, the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace takes the Tiguan – a poised and classy mid-sized SUV – and makes it bigger. 

It measures 4701mm long on a 2790mm wheelbase, up 215mm and 109mm over the regular Tiguan. The stretch is to help accommodate a third row of seats which, while they won't fit a pair of burly rugby players, can serve as an extra pew for children. 

Motivation is provided by the same 1.4-litre and two 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engines from the regular Tiguan, and the Allspace gives Volkswagen Australia a seven-seat SUV given the absence of the large Atlas/Teramont available in markets like the US and China.
