Volkswagen Revealing 7-Seat Tiguan In Detroit

Volkswagen has announced the company will reveal a seven-seat version of the Tiguan at next month’s Detroit Auto Show. In Europe the seven-seater will be referred to as the Allspace, but the vehicle will be on sale in North America, Europe and China by summer 2017.

A few details of the new Tiguan have already been revealed. The wheelbase is supposedly 4.3-inches longer than the current Tiguan and the rear overhang is slightly larger as well, meaning there’s going to be more cargo room as well. Aside from the longer length, front and rear styling is supposed to be identical to the regular Tiguan.

Like the regular Tiguan, the Allspace variant will be build on VW’s MQB architecture and is expected to share its lineup of gas and diesel engines. Though you can be assured the diesel engines will not make their way to North America.

    This is probably a good thing. The more crossovers the better (at least it seems that way looking at sales charts).

    I guess this is similar to the TrailBlazer EXT/Envoy XL in theory...?

    I still dont understand the point of doing this considering the Alas also seats 7.


    I was wondering the same. Just as VW is trying to push the Atlas, they do this...
