Mayor distancia entre ejes en el Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 2017.

Aunque lleva siendo noticia desde junio, cuando se supo que se iba a fabricar en México, es ahora cuando el Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 2017 toma mayor relevancia. Así es, la versión de 7 plazas del SUV alemán acaba de presentarse en el salón de Detroit con la especificación estadounidense, configuración que sirve perfectamente para presentar lo que nos llegará a Europa dentro de pocos meses. 

Lógicamente, la gran cualidad de este todocamino es su alargada distancia entre ejes, en concreto, 11,0 centímetros mayor que la del Tiguan convencional. El aumento de esta cota ha permitido incluir una tercera fila de asientos, destinada a niños o a adultos de talla pequeña. La flexibilidad de la plataforma modular MQB ha sido clave para poder desarrollar esta variante de carácter práctico, en la que también ha aumentado en 115 litros el espacio destinado al equipaje, hasta alcanzar los 730. Respecto a la longitud total, crece hasta los 4,70 metros, 21,5 centímetros más que el modelo del que deriva.

Tracción 4x2 y total 4MOTION

El Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 2017 será la única versión a la venta del Tiguan en Estados Unidos. Si se elige con tracción delantera, la sexta y la séptima plazas vienen de serie, mientras que son opcionales con el sistema de tracción total 4MOTION. En cualquier caso, la instrumentación digital Volkswagen Digital Cockpit se incluye en la dotación de fábrica. 

Las opciones mecánicas se reducen a un único motor de gasolina turboalimentado, el 2.0 TSI, de 2,0 litros de cilindrada y 184 CV. Este propulsor trabaja en combinación con una transmisión automática de 8 velocidades, de la que Volkswagen no ha especificado su arquitectura. La versión 4x4 del Allspace dispone del control dinámico de la conducción Active Control, que permite elegir entre cuatro programas diferentes, uno de ellos específico para rutas camperas. 

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

¿Qué podemos esperar de la configuración europea? Lo más probable es que herede la imagen exterior e interior casi sin variación del modelo de 5 plazas. También es lógico pensar que mantendrá muchos de los motores de su hermano pequeño. En concreto, hablamos de tres de gasolina turboalimentados, el 1.4 TSI, de 125 y 150 CV, y el 2.0 TSI, de 180. También nos referimos a cuatro turbodiésel, basados sobre el bloque 2.0 TDI, con 115, 150, 190 y 240 CV. El más potente sobresale del resto, gracias a su tecnología biturbo. 

¿Se presentará en el salón de Ginebra? Sin duda, las posibilidades de que así se produzca son altas. Cuando llegue, se ubicará por debajo del Touareg, que seguirá siendo el SUV de referencia de Volkswagen en Europa. No sucederá así en Estados Unidos, ya que allí tienen el nuevo Atlas. Como sigues pudiendo comprobar cada día, los todocaminos se mantienen como piezas clave en las gamas de las marcas punteras... 

Forma parte de algo grande

Detroit, Mich. – The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan unveiled today at the North American International Auto Show kicks off a big year for the Volkswagen brand in America. Engineered specifically to meet the needs of American customers, the all-new Tiguan builds on the current vehicle’s fun to drive character and adds a more sophisticated and spacious interior, flexible seating and high-tech infotainment and driver assistance features.

“The new Tiguan demonstrates how we plan to give American customers the usability and versatility they demand without sacrificing style or Volkswagen’s trademark driving dynamics,“ said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen. “Every detail of the Tiguan has been thoughtfully engineered for our U.S. customers to maximize space and convenience, while retaining its performance, agility, and value. We plan to price Tiguan very competitively with other compact SUVs. With the brand-new Tiguan and the all-new Atlas, 2017 is the year of #SUVW.”

As with the Atlas, the Tiguan is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) architecture. Compared with the current model, the new Tiguan has far more interior space; at 185.2 inches long, the 2018 model is a stunning 10.7 inches longer than the current version and has up to 57 percent more cargo capacity. The 109.9-inch wheelbase—4.4 inches longer than the new Tiguan sold in Europe—provides both sliding second-row seats and an optional third row.

On the outside, the all-new Tiguan adopts Volkswagen’s clean and timeless design DNA. The MQB platform allows for a wider, lower stance, while the exterior design of sharper, stronger character lines, and LED lighting has already garnered several European design awards. The exterior design also enhances the Tiguan’s utility, from a 26-degree approach angle for off-roading to a lower lift-in height for the tailgate.

The Tiguan’s interior has been rethought and refreshed; even the cloth seats of entry models now feature a rhombus pattern that offers a premium look. The Tiguan now features the optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit display, offering drivers a reconfigurable display of key data and the ability to position navigation data front and center for easy viewing. The available Volkswagen Car-Net® system provides a suite of connected vehicle services, including standard App-Connect technology that offers compatible smartphone integration with the three major platforms—Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM and MirrorLink®. The new Tiguan also offers an available Fender® Premium Audio System.

To meet the demands of American SUV drivers, the Tiguan now offers a comprehensive suite of driver assistance technology. A rearview camera comes standard and available features include: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), upgraded for use in stop and go traffic; Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) with Pedestrian Monitoring; Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert; and Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), which actively helps the driver steer the car back into its lane should the vehicle start drifting into another lane without using the turn signal.

In addition, the 2018 Tiguan offers a combination of both passive and active safety systems that are engineered to meet or exceed current crash regulations. These systems include the class exclusive Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.

A new palate of exterior and interior colors combine with key available comfort options such as eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The second-row bench can slide seven inches fore and aft and be split 40:20:40. The third-row seats will come standard on front-wheel-drive models and be optional on all-wheel-drive versions. An available panoramic sunroof lightens the entire interior space, while the foot-activated power liftgate makes the cargo space more accessible than ever.

The new Tiguan will be powered by an updated version of Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct- injection TSI® engine, making 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, driving the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Optional 4Motion with Active Control all-wheel-drive offers four driver selectable modes to maximize driving enjoyment and grip, on pavement or off.
