European audiences get their first view of the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.

The extended version of the brand’s popular SUV was unveiled as the Volkswagen Tiguan LWB at the Detroit show in January.

It stretches the standard Tiguan wheelbase by 110mm, and the overall length by 215mm, mainly in the rear overhang that grows 106mm.

The extension creates a potential extra 145 litres of boot space, or 250 litres with the rear seats folded, as well as the option of fitting two extra seats in a third row.

Six-strong engine range

   

Ahead of the car’s European debut, more details of the powertrain line-up have been released – six engines will be available, ranging from 150 to 240hp. All are direct-injection four-cylinder turbo units.

Three petrol options range across 150, 180 and 220hp, while their diesel equivalents rate at 150, 190 and 240hp. Front-wheel drive is standard on the entry-level models, though 4Motion all-wheel-drive is an option on the 150hp diesel and standard on all other versions. All-wheel-drive models also gain the DSG auto dual-clutch gearbox.

Mild changes to the front-end styling and the profile differentiate the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace from its big-selling standard length sister. It will be offered in VW’s standard three trim levels of Trendline, Comfortline and Highline.

UK sales of the Tiguan Allspace are not expected to begin until late 2017. Prices are still be revealed but based on the already announced German prices they are expected to be around £3,000 more than the standard Tiguan. This costs from £23,140.

The Tiguan Allspace will be unveiled on Volkswagen’s Geneva stand on 7th March – The Car Expert will be at the show to provide latest news on all of the new model reveals.
