Images of the new Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace seven-seater have hit the web, following official preview sketches earlier in the week.

This is Volkswagen’s new seven-seat version of the latest Tiguan. It, as you can see, looks pretty much the same as the regular Tiguan, with boring yet clean styling cues, horizontal body lines, complex grille and headlight combination, and a neat rear end.

Where the Allspace differs is with the wheelbase. Volkswagen has added 11cm to the length, providing more passenger space inside, with the introduction of a three row of seating. This is the first time the Tiguan is being offered with seven seats.

Not only is there more passenger space inside, cargo space is also expected to grow. In the regular Tiguan there is 615 litres, and 1655 litres with the second row folded down. These numbers are set to grow, with the third row folded and the second row folded, respectively.

The new model will be called the Tiguan in the U.S., while in China it will be called the Tiguan L as highlighted by this Chinese-spec model. Australian customers are said to be offered the seven-seater, although it’s unconfirmed when it will arrive and what name it will adopt. In Europe it will be called the Tiguan Allspace.

A public debut will take place at the Detroit auto show next month, with all specs and features to be announced then.
