The 7-passenger SUV segment is currently on the rise. Various brands are competing to present SUVs aimed at consumers. German automotive giant, Volkswagen did not want to miss the release of a similar SUV in the Tiguan Allspace model. VW makes the Tiguan as the Golf GTi SUV, with a sporty design aura combined with the dashing body style of an SUV. Tiguan was built from the VW-Passat platform combined with design accents inspired by the latest generation of VW Golf.
VW is not playing on this new segment, because the length of the Tiguan Allspace even surpassed some of its rival 7-seater SUVs such as the CR-V, CX-5, X-Trail, Almaz, and Koleos. That is, the SUV built from the Modular Transverse Matrix platform accommodates greater cabin space because the wheelbase is made 77mm longer than the previous generation.
Volkswagen apparently only changed the physical Tiguan to be bigger, but not with the engine. Tiguan Allspace is still supported by a 1.4-liter TSI engine.

We cannot expect more from this old Tiguan engine, because the acceleration capability of 0-100 kph can be reached in 9.5 seconds.
The question of engine performance is still the same, but the special part is the suspension. Tiguan Allspace has supported the suspension hardness level features that can be changed, or they call it Adaptive Chassis Control. We can change the suspension to be super soft when we change the driving mode to Comfort and become rigid if moved to Sport. In this way, the car becomes stable when we want to drive it on the freeway.
