The Volkswagen Tiguan has just been spotted in the more desirable long wheelbase form. The car, in fact, was caught on camera in China, ahead of its possible debut at the Chengdu Auto Show in September. Meanwhile, the official launch is scheduled in October.
Looking at the spy picture, 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 said to be a seven-seater model and will be made in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture.
The car is likely to be called Tiguan L or Tiguan XL. When launched later in the year, it will carry a price tag of around 225,000 yuan (Rs 22.68 lakh). While the first-gen Tiguan never made it to the Indian market, the second-gen model (shown at the 2016 Auto Expo) will be introduced as a locally assembled vehicle.
