Detroit show: Volkswagen Tiguan stretches out

Stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium

Latest articles

Skoda Kodiaq

The Skoda Kodiaq has received consistently positive reviews in the UK media, with lower-spec models generally earning higher scores than more expensive models.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Land Rover Discovery Sport has received very mixed reviews from the UK motoring media, with scores rating from very poor to outstanding.

Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson has received average to good reviews from the UK media with praise for its value for money and good levels of standard equipment.

Nissan Micra

The Nissan Micra has received mixed scores from the UK media since it was launched, with earlier reviews tending to rate it more highly than recent tests.
 

Debuting at the North American International Auto Show is an extended version of the big-selling Volkswagen Tiguan SUV.

Presented at Detroit as the LWB (long wheelbase) the car will go on sale first in the USA and then China, before arriving in the UK late in 2017 as the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.

It will be offered in both five-seat or optional seven-seat versions, though reports suggest that the rear two seats will not be very suitable for adults.

The standard Tiguan wheelbase is extended by 110mm, and the overall length by 215mm, creating a potential extra 115 litres of bootspace.

   

Other expected changes include minor exterior styling tweaks, chiefly to the bonnet and grille. The engine line-up is yet to be confirmed but will likely range across 1.4-litre TSI petrol and 2-litre TDI diesel units, with all-wheel-drive also available.

Volkswagen’s typical Trendline, Comfortline and Highline trim levels are expected on UK models, with prices starting around £3,000 more than the standard Tiguan.
