At a time when car prices and the accompanying wait lists are only going up, Volkswagen is offering a discounted Tiguan that you can buy right now
Volkswagen has extended an olive branch to buyers of its supply-plagued Tiguan Allspace by announcing a package deal on the 132TSI Life grade for a limited time.
The deal, set to last until March 31, offers three years of free servicing, a $49,990 driveaway price tag and, perhaps most importantly, immediate delivery for buyers.
The promotional price means the Tiguan Allspace 132TSI is only slightly more expensive than the entry-level Tiguan Allspace 110TSI Life that’s priced at roughly $49,500 driveaway.
While equipment levels between the two are largely identical, the 132TSI possesses a more powerful 132kW/320Nm engine, an upgraded seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
The Tiguan Allspace sits on the larger side of the midsize SUV segment and competes with rivals such as the closely related Skoda Kodiaq as well as the new-generation Mitsubishi Outlander and Nissan X-Trail.
Late last year, Volkswagen announced the Passat wagon, Passat Alltrack, Arteon and Touareg models would be available with five years of free servicing until March 31st, with all of these models also available for immediate delivery.
The Life grade is the entry point for Tiguan Allspace buyers but the standard kit is still relatively extensive following the recent facelift and its accompanying price increase.
Standard features include a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless phone charger.
The seats are trimmed in cloth and benefit from manual lumbar adjustment and the model also benefits from a power tailgate, three-zone climate control along with heated and folding mirrors.
The standard safety suite includes front and rear parking sensors, front AEB with pedestrian detection, reversing AEB, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and driver fatigue monitoring.
Volkswagen Australia has previously told Chasing Cars of its plan to circumvent the semiconductor shortages by offering stripped-back variants of its popular models to assist customers wanting to get their hands on its new models sooner.
In 2022, Volkswagen announced the special edition Tiguan Allspace 162TSI Adventure would be joining the line-up offering a five-seat configuration paired with an enlarged 760-litre boot and a $54,990 driveaway price.
All prices listed are before on-road costs unless otherwise specified.
