The long wheelbase version of the upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan has been caught on test again, this time in the US. This more desirable 7-seater version was earlier spotted in China where its is expected to officially arrive at the Chengdu Auto Show in September.
Looking at the pictures, it seems VW has extended the standard Tiguan’s wheelbase by a fair bit. As a result, the rear door is longer and the rear quarter glass is bigger in size as well. This long wheelbase version is expected to have a seven-seat configuration.
The long wheelbase Tiguan is expected to go on sale in China by the end of this year, whereas it will enter production in the US in the first quarter of 2017. When launched, the car is likely to be called Tiguan L or Tiguan XL. Now although the Indian market will not be getting this very model, Volkswagen India has confirmed that the regular 5-seater Tiguan will be introduced as a locally assembled vehicle.
