- The VW Tiguan AllSpace will replace the current VW Tiguan in India in Q2 2020.
- It will be launched around INR 30 lakh (ex-showroom) price tag.
- It is a rival to the Honda CR-V, the Isuzu MU-X and the Skoda Kodiaq.
Volkswagen is all set to introduce 4 new SUVs in the Indian market and the VW Tiguan AllSpace will be the first product out of this lot. It will be launched in Q2 2020. Now its road testing has already commenced in India as suggested by the recent spy images snapped by Overdrive.
The Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace is nothing but the longer version of the Volkswagen Tiguan which already sells in the Indian market. The International-spec VW Tiguan AllSpace is offered in both 5-seat and 7-seat configuration and India will get the latter.
It measures 4,704 mm in length, which is 215 mm longer and has a wheelbase of 2,791 mm, which is 110 mm more than the 5-seat Tiguan Allspace. The use of longer wheelbase has enabled VW to carve out more (60 mm) knee room and an additional 115 liters of luggage space (730 liters).
Its side profile features a bigger rear window and the quarter glass. Apart from that, it also gets a slightly altered bonnet and radiator grille which differentiates it from the regular Tiguan. Furthermore, its bonnet is also a higher set which gives it a slightly bolder look. All these changes reflect a styling inspiration taken from the Volkswagen Altas.
The Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace will arrive as a replacement to the current BS-IV model which will be taken off the shelves once the longer Tiguan launches in India. If this happens, chances are that the company might avoid using the 'AllSpace' suffix because there will only be a single wheelbase option present in the market.
In terms of mechanicals, it will use a 2.0L TSI engine. Though the specifications remain under covers, for now, we bet it will be launched in the 132 kW (180 PS)/320 Nm version which may be paired with a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch AT and the 4MOTION AWD system.
