What would you say to a seven-seat version of the new Volkswagen Tiguan generation?
Well, if it has nothing to do with the “dieselgate” scandal, than why not, but there is still a big issue with such a vehicle, why not go for its larger brother, the Touareg, instead? Well, in the end, it’s all a matter of taste, price and practicality so we understand if VW will decide to introduce such a model. In the meantime, the image posted above is nothing more than a simple rendering, which has been put together by RMCarDesign and it is showing us a longer vehicle with a less slopping roofline, different bumpers and taillights and the extra row of seats.
The new generation of the Volkswagen Tiguan has debuted at the 2016 Frankfurt Motor Show. The midsized crossover has been previewed by the Cross Coupe GTE and it is now 60 mm longer and 30 mm wider than its predecessor, also losing more than 50 kg from its weight. The model is also sitting 33 mm closer to the road and the wheelbase has been stretched by 77 mm, to 2,681 mm. There are not 29 mm of additional rear knee room and more space inside the trunk, which has increased by 145 liters to 615 liters. This can go up to 1,665 liters with the rear seats folded. The engine lineup is meeting the Euro 6 emission standards and it includes TSI and TDI units, with FWD and AWD. The 7-seat version is said to be introduced next year.
