Volkswagen’s Allspace is a Tiguan for those who like to entertain. The SUV packs plenty of technology into a design that provides plenty of space or can be used as a seven-seater.
Traditionally, the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace accounts for around 40 per cent of sales of the mid-sized SUV. That figure is expected to rise with the release of the latest version, simply because it is relatively inexpensive compared to the five-seat model and access to vehicles is more assured.
The rationale behind that is simple: the seven-seater is sourced from Mexico and doesn’t attract a five-per cent import duty, unlike the European-built five-seater.
Volkswagen is still dealing with semiconductor shortages, so some of the features typically found on the Tiguan are about to be temporarily deleted off the standard inclusions list.
The major omissions include blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, though the powered electric tailgate has also been relegated to the options menu.
The “de-specced” versions will start arriving in dealerships around September and VW expects the issue to exist until March next year.
For now, there are around 4000 Tiguan Allspaces in dealerships that do have all the gear initially promoted.
