Volkswagen Australia says it is pleased to announce the return of the 140TDI engine to the Tiguan Allspace range, which has been previously unavailable due to WLTP-related production restrictions.

“Volkswagen Australia Director of Customer Experience and Marketing, Mr. Jason Bradshaw, was pleased to have the full offering of Tiguan Allspace variants back in the fold.

“Diesel remains an essential part of our model mix, and is a necessity for many of our customers,” Mr. Bradshaw said.

“It’s good news for everyone that we can once again offer this popular variant,” he continued.

The 140TDI engine for the Tiguan Allspace is available to order now with a market introduction of October 2020 for a small allocation of MY20 vehicles. The full allocation of MY21 vehicles will begin arriving from early November.”

Tiguan Allspace is based on the five-seat Tiguan but is a significantly longer vehicle. It has more overall length, at 4701mm (+215mm), a longer wheelbase (+109mm), and 106mm more rear overhang. All of which allows for the addition of two seats in a third row but with the same width as the five-seater.

Cleverly it still has a boot capacity of 230 litres with all the seats in use. With the third row seats folded down the boot goes up to a voluminous 700 litres.

New Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is priced at $54,690 plus on-road costs.
