Volkswagen is adding to its SUV range with the new Tiguan Allspace, a stand-alone variant of the successful German SUV . A wheelbase extended by 109 mm to 2,787 mm and total length increased by 215 mm (4,701 mm in total) make it a space giant among SUVs of its class.
The Tiguan and the new Tiguan Allspace were developed at the same time. Marco Pavone of the Volkswagen Design Team is responsible for the exterior of the Tiguan. “We have designed the rear doors of the Tiguan Allspace to be longer. The bonnet was also raised up at the front above the radiator grille to adapt the proportions to the longer overall length,” says the exterior designer.
Pavone goes on to say: “A unique, defining line accentuates the side window design that rises behind the C-pillar”. The bonnet and silhouette show deliberate parallels to another new Volkswagen SUV: the Atlas developed for the USA. At the front, there is the newly designed radiator grille with its chrome trim strips, some of which extend into the headlights and suggest a visual bridge between the Tiguan Allspace and the Atlas.
