The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to release the future generation of the Tiguan model in three body styles.
Even if the new generation of the Volkswagen Tiguan will most likely hit the market in 2014, which means that the vehicle will come as a 2015 model year, the Wolfsburg engineers are currently working on it, trying to improve it and offer the brand’s customers something new. The all-new Volkswagen Tiguan will be developed on the modular MQB platform, the same one which will underpin models the next generation of the popular Golf, but the platform can already be seen on the new Audi A3, which was officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The all-new MQB platform will allow the company to develop the future Tiguan generation in its three body styles, which will be three-door, five-door and even a large wheelbase version, with the latter being expected to be 50 cm longer. The long wheelbase version of the future Tiguan will be offered exclusively in the United States, and the longer wheelbase will help the engineers add a third row of seats and turn the vehicle into a seven-seater. Under the hood, the future Tiguan will get the regular petrol and diesel engines, but a hybrid version might also be developed.
