    Interesting that the Allspace has returned. I guess that means that it’s not receiving the same facelift as the regular Tiguan any time soon, which was why I had assumed that it had been removed. That’s a shame as, other than the R-Line Tech (which isn’t available on the scheme in Allspace) the facelift version of the standard Tiguan has had a few nice additions.

    At last! Thank you Peugeot.

     

    Looking forward to seeing what the new 208 prices will be for the GT and GT Premium versions.

    Because it uses fuel wigwam and I don’t want the air con on all the time

    Assuming we are talking about automatic climate control Mike11 (I don’t know the car) the extra fuel used is negligible.  It’s job is to maintain normal levels of humidity and temperature. It’s not really aircon in the old sense any more.  It comes on by default for that reason.

    No Mike, it stays the same as when you left it. Same with the heated seats etc. If you left them on when you locked the vehicle for the night, they will still be on next morning when you start the car up. Aircon settings are the same.

    In the first car I had with climate control I did a long run one way with CC on, the other way with it off. There was no noticable difference to fuel consumption. Just leave it do its job.  The main benefit is controlling humidity in the car in general, so windows should never mist up.

    Agreed. People misunderstand climate control / air con as being something that you just need to cool the car in the summer. As you rightly say it is designed to be on permanently, all year round as it regulates both temperature and humidity, the latter of which helps avoid driver fatigue. In fact, if you don’t keep the Air Con switched on all year round the seals dry out and perish, which causes the refrigerant to leak out and then in the summer when you really do want nice cool air the efficiency of the system is much reduced.

    Mike once you get used to the car, if it is anything like mine, in the setting you find the necessary adjustment, mine automatically switches on at start up , in setting I can switch to manual.

    As your Toyota is a Hybrid is constantly harvesting energy so I doubt you will notice the slightest difference in fuel consumption using the climate control.

    Please be aware according to the manufacture instruction manual you regularly need to run you aircon/ climate control, personally I leave mine as it is it has not made any difference to my range


    In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.
    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    Whilst in the original use Air con did decrease the MPG, this, with the exception of fully electric cars, (which also suffer MPG loss using the heater)

    is now not the case. Air con units are much more efficient and smaller pumps with same efficiency, they make very little difference, plus Climate control also keeps the cabin humid free during winter (outside temp allowing) so just leave it on. If MPG us so tight, turn everything off ☺️

    Mike,

    Don’t turn climate control off. I did for a few months as I wanted to test the impact on mpg.  Turns out the gas in the system does not like being inert for long periods and I had to get the system Re gassed. It was never the same again.
    As I recall turning it off made no noticeable difference to the fuel consumption.

    I have a feeling that this may be more of a VW supply issue with these engines than a Motability one. To take the facelifted Tiguan as an example, the 2.0TSi engine has not been released for sale in the UK yet and this must be hampering sales, as the sole petrol engine available at present is the 1.5 and that only comes with 2 wheel drive. To get 4WD at present means a diesel. A lot of SUV drivers want 2.0 engines and 4WD but are looking to move away from diesels.

    Because it is immoral to have a car which can do more than pull the skin off an even slightly damp custard?
