2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift: what’s new?
Like the five-seat Tiguan facelift, the Allspace gains a redesigned front end incorporating a more prominent grille with illuminated strips and a redesigned Volkswagen emblem. Volkswagen has updated the SUV’s headlights, adding new interactive IQ Light LED Lights that comprise 24 individual LED diodes that can adjust, partly automatically, to different driving conditions.
At the rear, the “Tiguan” badging has been relocated to the centre of the tailgate and there are new taillights.
The IQ Drive Travel Assist system is also new for the facelifted Tiguan Allspace, providing level two autonomous driving assist functions at speeds of up to 210kph. This system brings with it autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian monitoring, blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and more.
Carrying the updates on to the inside, Volkswagen has worked with audio specialist Harman Kardon to develop a new top-rung sound system, while the Allspace is the latest Volkswagen model to receive the firm's new climate control section with touch panels and sliders. Apart from this, there is also an updated touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and VW’s We Connect system, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting and more.
2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift: engines
The petrol engines on offer include a 150hp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels and a pair of 2.0-litre, four-cylinder units that produces 190hp and 245hp, respectively, and send that power to all four wheels. There is also a pair of 2.0-litre, diesels available abroad, respectively producing 150hp (with a front-wheel drive layout) and 200hp (with an all-wheel drive layout).
While Volkswagen recently introduced a plug-in hybrid variant for the standard Tiguan, as well as a 320hp high-performance R version, joining the larger Touareg R as part of its performance division’s rapidly expanding line-up, it will not offer either variants for the Allspace.
Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift: India launch
As things stand, the German carmakers has yet to confirm whether it plans to bring the Tiguan Allspace facelift to the Indian market.

Volkswagen is also preparing to launch the Tiguan facelift in India with the India-spec model already revealed, along with the all-new Taigun mid-size SUV made on the India specific MQB A0 IN platform.
