    2023 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace gains IQ.Drive in Malaysia – AEB, ACC; new wireless charger; fr RM167k

    Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has updated the Tiguan Allspace with the IQ.Drive suite of driver assistance systems, which is standard on all three available variants: Life, Elegance and R-Line 4Motion.

    With the addition of IQ.Drive, the Tiguan Allspace now comes with Front Assist (autonomous emergency braking), Adaptive Cruise Control, Side Assist (blind spot monitoring), Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Assist. The three-row SUV also now comes standard with a wireless phone charger.

    Beyond these changes, the rest of the kit list remains unchanged from before. This also applies to the powertrains, with the Life and Elegance continuing to sport a 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder TSI engine producing 150 PS (148 hp or 110 kW) and 250 Nm of torque, paired with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.

    Meanwhile, the R-Line 4Motion is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder TSI engine making 220 PS (217 hp or 162 kW) and 350 Nm. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as well as a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

    VPCM also noted in its release that the Tiguan Allspace joins other IQ.Drive-equipped models, namely the Golf GTI and Arteon, in being eligible for the Volkswagen Assurance Package (VAP). This provides owners with a five-year, unlimited-mileage manufacturer warranty as well as a three-year, 45,000-km free maintenance package.

    Depending on the selected model, VAP is valued from RM8,000 to RM10,000, the company said. Customers who opt out of VAP will receive a two-year, unlimited-mileage warranty instead – five years roadside assistance is provided regardless. In essence, if you choose not to take VAP, you’re trading a longer warranty period and free maintenance for a lower vehicle price.

    On that note, the Tiguan Allspace now starts from RM166,590 on-the-road without insurance for the entry-level Life variant. This is followed by the Elegance that retails at RM195,590, while the range-topping R-Line 4Motion is priced at RM247,073.60.

    Keep in mind that these figures are without VAP. If you want the extended warranty and free maintenance package, the asking prices of the Life and Elegance go up by RM8,000 to RM174,590 and RM203,590 respectively. As for the R-Line 4Motion, the VAP for the range-topper costs RM10,000, so it’ll be RM257,073.60.

     
     
  • Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Life SUV now priced at RM160,590 – RM13k cheaper, deliveries from Jan 2023

    Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Life SUV now priced at RM160,590 – RM13k cheaper, deliveries from Jan 2023

    Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced a lower price for the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Life, which now goes for RM160,590 on-the-road without insurance. The price adjustment takes place with immediate effect and is applicable for deliveries from January 2023 onwards.

    The Tiguan Allspace Life was introduced in August this year as an entry-level variant of the three-row, seven-seat Tiguan Allspace range, which has the Elegance and R-Line. The launch price was RM173,590 on-the-road without insurance, so we’re looking at an RM13,000 reduction in the SUV’s RRP.

    No spec change, which means that buyers of the Life get the same 1.4 litre turbocharged engine with 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque from 1,500-3,500 rpm. Drive from the TSI unit is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed wet dual-clutch DSG transmission. Claimed average fuel consumption is 7.7 litres per 100 km (13 km/l). This powertrain is similar to the one in the RM189,590 Elegance variant.

    The Life gets the Tiguan facelift’s illuminated light strip between the full LED headlamps, LED taillights, silver-painted side mirrors and 18-inch Frankfurt single-tone wheels with 235/55 tyres. One notable difference compared to the Elegance is the unpainted bumper inserts.

    Inside, the base Tiguan comes with fabric upholstery instead of leather, and there’s no 12-way powered front seats with memory, ventilation and heating functions. Other features omitted to achieve the lower price point include the five-preset ambient lighting system and illuminated sill plates. You still get a powered tailgate, although there’s no Easy Open hands-free function.

    The rest of the kit list reads pretty much the same, with items like a leather multi-function steering wheel, Climatronic triple-zone climate control (with rear vents), 11.7-inch Digital Cockpit digital instrument cluster, 9.2-inch Discover Pro touchscreen infotainment system, navigation function and wireless Android Auto/Apple CarPlay support all being standard.

    In the safety and driver assist department, the Life comes with six airbags, stability control, hill descent control, regular cruise control and Isofix front passenger and rear child seat anchors. There’s also lane keeping assist and driver alert, but no AEB. As for colours, one can choose from Atlantic Blue, Platinum Grey, Pyrite Silver, Deep Black and Oryx White – the same options as the Elegance.

    Once again, the Tiguan Allspace Life is now priced at RM160,590 on-the-road without insurance, RM13,000 cheaper than before. It comes with three years free maintenance, five years unlimited mileage warranty and five years of roadside assistance.

  • 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Life in Malaysia – new entry-level variant; 1.4 TSI; priced from RM174k

    2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Life in Malaysia – new entry-level variant; 1.4 TSI; priced from RM174k

    Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) recently introduced a 1.4 TSI Life variant to the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift line-up, which joins the existing 1.4 TSI Elegance as well as the 2.0 TSI R-Line 4Motion. Here, we’re bringing you a full gallery of the new entry-level offering, which is priced at RM173,590 on-the-road without insurance.

    That asking price makes the Life RM16,000 cheaper than the Elegance (RM189,590) and RM63,483.60 less when compared to the range-topping R-Line (RM237,073.60). While we’re on the matter of pricing, it should be noted that the prices of both the Elegance and R-Line have gone up by RM9,000 and RM11,000 respectively from the time we reported on SST-inclusive pricing for Volkswagen models in Malaysia back in July.

    Getting back to the Life, the entry-level variant is powered by the engine used by the Elegance, with a 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine providing 150 PS from 5,000-6,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque from 1,500-3,500 rpm. Drive is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed wet dual-clutch DSG transmission.

    On the exterior, the Life gets similar design cues as its siblings, including an illuminated light strip between the full LED headlamps and ‘Allspace’ specification trim. Like the Elegance, the Life gets LED taillights, silver-painted side mirrors as well as 18-inch Frankfurt silver alloy wheels (with 235/55 profile tyres). One notable difference is the bumper inserts are unpainted.

    Inside, the Life comes with fabric upholstery instead of black Vienna leather in the Elegance, and there’s no 12-way powered front seats with memory, ventilation and heating functions. Other features that have been omitted to achieve the lower price point include the five-preset ambient lighting system and illuminated sill plates.

    You’ll still get a powered tailgate, although there’s no Easy Open hands-free function like what you get with the Elegance and R-Line. As with those variants, there’s seating for up to seven people spread across three rows (2-3-2 layout) and up to 1,775 litres of class-leading boot space with second- and third-row seats fully folded.

    The rest of the Life’s interior kit list is pretty much identical to its siblings, with items like a leather multi-function steering wheel, Climatronic triple-zone climate control (with rear vents), 11.7-inch Digital Cockpit digital instrument cluster, 9.2-inch Discover Pro touchscreen infotainment system, navigation function, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support (App-Connect) all being standard.

    In terms of safety and driver assistance systems, the Life is equipped with six airbags, stability control, hill descent control, cruise control and ISOFIX front passenger and rear child seat anchors as well as lane keeping assist and driver alert, but like the other two variants, there’s no autonomous emergency braking.

    The Life gets the same colour palette as the Elegance, with options being Atlantic Blue, Platinum Grey and Pyrite Silver metallics as well as Deep Black and Oryx White pearl-effect finishes; the latter two is available at no additional cost. Each purchase comes with three years of free maintenance, a five-year unlimited mileage warranty and five-year roadside assistance.

     
     
  • 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 1.4 TSI Life now in Malaysia – entry-level in three variant range, RM173k

    2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 1.4 TSI Life now in Malaysia – entry-level in three variant range, RM173k

    Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced the introduction of a third Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift variant to its model line-up. The locally-assembled Allspace 1.4 TSI Life joins the existing 1.4 TSI Elegance and 2.0 TSI R-Line 4Motion-as the entry-level model in the series.

    UPDATE: VPCM has finally released the spec sheet for the Tiguan Allspace Life, allowing the differences from the Elegance to be detailed in the story.

    Visually, the Life shares the same exterior design cues as seen on its siblings, with styling elements including a signature Volkswagen illuminated light strip between the full LED headlamps and ‘Allspace’ specification trim. However, the bumper inserts are unpainted, compared to the Elegance. Other bits include LED tail lights, silver-painted side mirrors as well as the 18-inch Frankfurt silver alloy wheels and 235/55 rubbers, similar to the Elegance.

    Inside, the Life’s lower price means fabric seats as opposed to the black Vienna leather upholstery found on the Elegance, and you won’t find the 12-way power-adjustable front seats with memory and active climate (seat heating/ventilation) feature on the more expensive variant here. The Life also ditches the five-preset ambient lighting and illuminated scuff plates seen on the Elegance, and the electric tailgate comes without a sensor-controlled easy open/close function.

    Most of the kit elsewhere is identical, and includes a leather multi-function sports steering wheel, triple-zone Climatronic automatic climate control and a 9.2-inch Discover Pro infotainment system with navigation and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay wireless connectivity. No changes to the seven-seater’s practicality, with up to 1,775 litres of class-leading boot space with second- and third-row seats fully folded.

    Like the Elegance, the Life is powered by a a 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 150 PS from 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque between 1,500 to 3,500 rpm. The mill is paired with a six-speed DSG wet dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent to the front wheels.

    Safety-wise, the Allspace Life comes equipped with six airbags, stability control, hill descent control and Isofix front passenger and rear child seat anchors as well as lane keeping assist and driver alert, but without autonomous emergency braking, a specification list similar to the other two Allspace variants.

    Similar to the Elegance, five exterior colours are available for the Life, these being Atlantic Blue, Platinum Grey and Pyrite Silver metallics and Deep Black and Oryx White pearl-effect finishes; there is no added cost for the latter two shades.

    The Volkswagen Allspace 1.4 TSI Life is priced at RM172,990 (recommended retail price), making it RM7,600 cheaper than the 1.4 TSI Elegance (now RM180,590 following the re-inclusion of SST). Its on-the-road price (excluding insurance) is RM173,590. The SUV comes with three years of free maintenance, a five-year unlimited mileage warranty and five-year roadside assistance.

     
     
  • 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift launched in Malaysia: Elegance, R-Line 4Motion, priced fr RM175k

    2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace facelift launched in Malaysia: Elegance, R-Line 4Motion, priced fr RM175k

    Less than two years after the original Tiguan Allspace, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has launched the facelifted model that was revealed last May. As before, the seven-seater SUV is available in two variants – the 1.4 TSI Elegance (replacing the outgoing Highline) and the returning 2.0 TSI R-Line 4Motion.

    Pricing starts at RM175,346 for the Elegance and RM220,527 for the R-Line, representing increases of around RM10,000 and RM11,000 respectively. Both figures are on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of the sales and service tax (SST) rebate valid until June 30, along with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

    The mechanicals are the same as before – the Elegance is powered by a 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 150 PS from 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque between 1,500 to 3,500 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed DSG wet dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent to the front wheels.

    As for the R-Line, that gets a larger 2.0 litre mill that churns out 220 PS from 4,500 to 6,200 rpm and 350 Nm between 1,500 and 4,400 rpm. This one receives a seven-speed DSG and 4Motion all-wheel drive. Fuel consumption is rated at 7.3 litres per 100 km for the Elegance and 8.7 litres per 100 km on the R-Line.

    The nip-and-tuck grafts on the VW’s latest design language on the front end, adding slimmer LED headlights with Mk8 Golf-style “tails” and a larger grille with an illuminated strip and a downward dip along the lower edge. Both variants get a bone-shaped bumper design with gloss black C-shaped corners, although the R-Line has a more aggressive design with chrome accents; the Elegance gets a silver skid plate instead.

    Along the side, you’ll find slimmer and longer front fender appliqués, as well as new wheels – 18-inch “Frankfurt” silver items for the Elegance and 19-inch “Valencia” grey rollers for the R-Line. At the back, both models receive the higher-end IQ.Light LED taillights with inverted L-shaped graphics and a full-width reflector strip. The bumpers have also been redesigned, with the R-Line gaining fake quad tailpipes.

    Inside, the Allspace receives a new three-spoke steering wheel and triple-zone automatic climate control switchgear, both of which feature touch-sensitive buttons. The infotainment system has also been standardised, with the two variants getting a 9.2-inch Discover Pro system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The digital instrument display has also been upgraded to an 11.7-inch unit.

    Another area where the Allspace is upgraded is the seats, which continue to be upholstered as standard in black Vienna leather. Both models now come as standard with 12-way power-adjustable front seats with memory (previously only on the driver’s side on the Elegance) and receive a new seat heating and ventilation feature.

    However, the airliner-style folding rear tables appear to have been ditched in favour of two small pockets on the backs of the front seats for storing small items like smartphones. At the rear of the car, the powered tailgate now features a hands-free opening and closing function.

    In fact, aside from the usual R-Line bits (flat-bottomed steering wheel, fake carbon fibre trim), the R-Line is only differentiated via the new 10-speaker, 480-watt Harman Kardon sound system, an upgrade from the Elegance’s eight speakers. Other bits of standard kit are keyless entry, push-button start, a new Air Care purification system, illuminated side sill scuff plates and a reverse camera.

    Safety-wise, the Allspace now comes as standard with lane keeping assist but not blind spot monitoring. More importantly, neither variant is offered with autonomous emergency braking, in line with the rest of the VPCM range, which is a shame. Six airbags, stability control, hill descent control and ISOFIX front passenger and rear child seat anchors continue to be fitted across the lineup.
