140TDI engine returns to VW Tiguan Allspace

Top-spec turbo-diesel engine returns to VW Tiguan Allspace range from $54,690

10 Sep 2020

VOLKSWAGEN Australia has announced the return of the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel 140TDI engine for its family-friendly Tiguan Allspace seven-seat medium SUV, which will sit atop the four-variant range in Highline spec at $54,690 plus on-road costs.


The 140TDI engine was previously unavailable in the Tiguan Allspace due to production restrictions stemming from WLTP homologation, but has now returned as the sole diesel variant.


Set to touch down locally in October, the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel mill produces 140kW/400Nm, driving all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.


The 140TDI features the same specification levels as the petrol-powered 162TSI Highline grade, and comes as standard with dynamic LED headlights, daytime running lights and tail-lights, keyless access and start, rain-sensing wipers, driver fatigue detection system, three-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, and an electrically operated tailgate.


In addition, the Highline grades also gain 19-inch Auckland alloy wheels, dynamic light assist, Vienna leather upholstery, adaptive chassis control, heated front and rear outer seats, electric front seat adjustment with memory function, 9.2-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation and gesture control and ambient interior lighting.


Standard safety kit extends to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane assist, park assist, adaptive cruise control, side assist, rear cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors with manoeuvre braking.


Two option packs are available – the Sound & Vision pack and R-Line pack – both of which ask $3000, while a sunroof can be had for an extra $2000 and metallic paint for $800.


Volkswagen Australia customer experience and marketing manager Jason Bradshaw said the re-addition of the diesel engine was important for the brand.


“Diesel remains an essential part of our model mix, and is a necessity for many of our customers,” he said.


“It's good news for everyone that we can once again offer this popular variant.”


To the end of August, Volkswagen has sold 2334 examples of the Tiguan Allspace, down 23.8 per cent over the same period in 2019.


The traditional five-seat Tiguan still remains the more popular version, with 3900 sales year-to-date.
