Auto Motor und Sport over in Germany reports that Volkswagen is gearing up to produce a completely redesigned Volkswagen Tiguan. The current Tiguan, a first-generation model, has been with us since 2007, built on the last generation Volkswagen Golf’s platform, the PQ35.
According to the report, the Tiguan is due later this fall, which makes sense considering the Tiguan is at least seven years old.
An increase in size is expected over the soon-to-be outgoing mode and power is expected to be provided by a range of four-cylinder gas and diesel motors. A long-wheel base Tiguan XL is also in the docket apparently, serving up seating for seven passengers. This apparently conflicts with rumors and news that Volkswagen is preparing a seven-seat crossover based on their CrossCoupe Concept. On the flipside however, this could also mean the planned seven-seat crossover was intended to be a Tiguan variant to begin with. Despite expecting to be more commodious than the Touareg, the Tiguan XL will supposedly be cheaper. A Tiguan Coupe is also expected, featuring a low-slung roof line and only four-seats.
