Volkswagen has just unveiled the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift, a mid-cycle refresh close to the one introduced last year for the 5-seat Volkswagen Tiguan, with which it shares design and new equipment elements.
The Volkswagen Tiguan received a light facelift in July of last year, which included not only a more modern and streamlined design but also a significant upgrade to the equipment portion. At the time, the German manufacturer only offered the 5-seater version, and hence the 7-seater Tiguan Allspace is still available in the previous configuration.
The introduction of this facelift for the 3-row seat variant completely harmonizes the two body styles, which will now share the same aesthetic and equipment configuration. This discrepancy is a result of the Tiguan range being produced and sold differently in each of its primary markets. While the Tiguan 5-seater was developed in Europe, the Tiguan Allspace is built in Mexico and China. In markets such as North America, where the 5-seater version is not available, the latter is also known as Tiguan.
Clearly, the latest Tiguan Allspace 2021 retains the same features as the renovated 5-seater Tiguan, so we shouldn’t anticipate significant design changes. At the front, we see the same front as its range-topping sibling, except that the bumpers, grille, and optics (which can be Matrix LED) have been altered to follow a significantly slimmer look than the previous one. On the sides, we’ll see new wheels ranging from 18 to 19 inches depending on the edition, while the rear will see just a change in the internal graphics of the rear lights.

On the inside, we find a larger center screen, a 10.25-inch digital dashboard, a color head-up display system, and the same material and finish options as the standard Tiguan. In terms of equipment, the most notable addition is the introduction of the Travel Assist driver assistance and emergency stop assistant system.
The mechanical selection will remain unaffected by the facelift’s debut, so we can anticipate Volkswagen to continue offering the same engines and transmissions as previously available at dealerships. While the company has not yet announced the details of the collection that will be available in our market, we will keep an eye out for brand news in this regard.
