The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace seven-seat SUV has been given the Wolfsburg special-edition treatment.

Priced from $59,990 before on-road costs, the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Wolfsburg Edition will reach Australian showrooms in June with a range of blacked-out exterior and interior details, namely on the mirror caps, roof rails, window surrounds, lower body trim and lower front air intakes.

It is the first time Volkswagen has graced one of its seven-seaters with a Wolfsburg badge.

Other additions over the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace R-Line variant on which it is based include "90 per cent light absorbing" window tint, gloss black 20-inch 'Suzuka' alloy wheels, and Wolfsburg tailgate badging.

Equipment levels are otherwise unchanged, with standard features including a 9.2-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation, power-adjustable heated front seats with memory, keyless entry, push-button start, an electric tailgate, tri-zone climate control and adaptive dampers.

A digital instrument cluster, Dynaudio premium sound system and a 360-degree camera – all features derived from the R-Line package, which is typically optional – are also standard.

Also fitted is a head-up display, which Volkswagen claims is exclusive to the Wolfsburg Edition.

Standard safety features include autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Powering the Tiguan Allspace Wolfsburg Edition is the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine as its 162TSI Highline (with R-Line package) donor, sending 162kW and 350Nm to all wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

A 6.8-second 0-100km/h sprint time is claimed, while combined fuel economy is rated at 9.0L/100km.

Four colours are available – Pure White, Pyrite Silver, Platinum Grey and Deep Black – with all bar the base white commanding an $800 premium.

A $2000 panoramic sunroof is the sole equipment option.

The Wolfsburg Edition shares lower grades' five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, while $1350 three-year and $2300 five-year service plans are available.

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Wolfsburg Edition will reach Australian showrooms in June – with orders now open online – following the return of the mid-spec 132TSI 4Motion in May, which returns after "extended unavailability due to supply constraints."

While the five-seat Tiguan will receive a mid-life facelift in the coming months, no such update is on the immediate horizon for the seven-seat Allspace.
