Updated Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace will lose all-wheel drive

April 6, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A number of European markets will be left without an all-wheel drive version of the three-seater Volkswagen Tiguan crossover.

According to AutoTimesNews, Volkswagen Tiguan and its extended version with the prefix Allspace in the title were previously available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. However, the three-row version will lose this privilege – now in the price list of the brand it will not be possible to find the all-wheel drive Tiguan Allspace.

It also means that the model will lose some engines in its engine range. So, previously a 2.0-liter TSI with 180 and 220 hp. was only available in combination with all-wheel drive. The situation is similar with the top-end 2.0-liter 240 hp diesel engine.

The company explained that they took such a step to reduce the range of the model due to low demand. So, a number of European buyers prefer a three-row crossover with TSI and TDI engines of 150 hp.
