Order books open for bigger, more practical Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

If you need the practicality of a seven-seat SUV, but don't want to stretch to the huge and very expensive Touareg, Volkswagen now has the solution – the Tiguan Allspace. It's a stretched version of the standard Tiguan SUV, but offers space for seven people – or five people and an enormous boot.

The scalable platform that underpins the Tiguan means Volkswagen have lengthened the car's wheelbase by 10cm. The car is 21cm longer overall, allowing room for seven people – and a luggage capacity of 230 litres with all seats in place.
