Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift: What we know
As mentioned above, the teaser shows the car from a rear-side angle giving us a look at the car’s basic profile, prominent shoulder line and tail-lamps. The most notable change in the teaser are the tail-lamps, which feature new LED patterning in-line with the Tiguan facelift that made its debut for international markets last year.
Overall, one could expect cosmetic changes to be similar to the standard Tiguan, with bits such as revised bumpers, a new front grille and re-shaped headlamps. Volkswagen has said that the Allspace “has received the same treatment (as the standard Tiguan) and now dazzles with a sharper look, digital cockpit and comprehensive connectivity.”
Moving to the cabin, the carmaker has confirmed that the updated Allspace will get new “control and assist systems” along with a “wide range of online-based services and functions” from the carmaker’s latest MIB3 infotainment system. One can also expect cosmetic changes such as revised switchgear and control surfaces similar to the regular Tiguan.
