    German auto giant Volkswagen will be taking the wraps off its new Tiguan with a longer wheelbase at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit that will be held in January. The model will then make its European debut with its display at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. The company is building a great amount of buzz around the new Tiguan version by first releasing its sketch and then going ahead and releasing the official images.

    Earlier reports have already told about the arrival of the Volkswagen Tiguan with a long wheelbase version which will be offering a 7-seater configuration with ample amount of interior space and comfort. The flexibility of the platform has helped the German car major to bring in a longer wheelbase version of its Tiguan.

    This new long wheelbase version of the Volkswagen Tiguan will be hitting the market for sale next year, but only in the car markets of North America, Europe and China. The European-spec model of this new longer version of the SUV will be known as the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, while in the other car markets, it will simply be named as the Tiguan L.

    The company has already revealed a few details about the European-spec Tiguan Allspace. Volkswagen has also confirmed that the distance between the SUV’s axles has increased by 11 centimeters. Along with a larger body and a longer rear overhang, the Tiguan has freed up ample space in its rear to accommodate another couple of seatsto make it a 7-seater model. The vehicle shares its design language with its smaller 5-seater version. While both the Tiguan versions have the exact same front fascia, the Tiguan AllSpace or L version’s extended body from the C-Pillar is very individualistic.

    The long-wheelbase Volkswagen Tiguan is expected to get equipped with the 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine along with 2-wheel drive or all front wheel system and coupled a refined 8 speed automatic transmission gearbox.

    The Tiguan long wheelbase version is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and will be manufactured alongside the existing 5-seater model in Volkswagen’s Puebla facility in Mexico, which is the company’s largest manufacturing facility outside Germany. Other details will come out as the model gets closer to its former unveiling at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. The Volkswagen Tiguan 7-seater version will be also rivaling against the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq 7-seater SUV.

    Apart from this large SUV model, Volkswagen is planning to bring in many smaller SUV models including the Golf-sized T-Roc’s production model and a compact SUV based on the Polo that is expected to be named as the T-Cross. This upcoming T-Cross SUV is likely to come to India in sometime around in the year 2018 with its probable debut at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo. On the other hand, the Volkswagen Tiguan 5-seater will have its Indian launch in 2017 and will come here through the CBU route. In India, the Tiguan 5-seater will rival the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
