Volksagen is reportedly developing a second version of its next Tiguan SUV, targeting buyers in the seven-seater market.

The second-generation Tiguan is expected to hit global markets in early 2016, but until now it had been expected to continue the current five-seat formula.

Earlier reports had pointed to the large CrossBlue concept, which is around 200mm longer than the already large Touareg, as the company’s only contender for a seven-seat SUV.

This new variant in the new Tiguan line, reported this week by the UK’s Autocar, is understood to have been developed with a focus on the US and China, although a European - and possibly Australian - launch is expected.

In Australia, the new model’s seven-seat SUV rivals would include Nissan’s X-Trail (with the Qashqai a rival to the regular five-seat Tiguan), while a larger CrossBlue seven-seater model would take on the Pathfinder and Toyota’s Kluger, among others.

Both Tiguan variants would be built on the same MQB platform that underpins the new Golf and new Passat, along with a number of other VW Group models.

Expect a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines to debut with the next Tiguan, along with the usual six-speed manual and seven (or more) speed DSG automatic transmissions.

The new Tiguan is expected to debut at next year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, although Autocar reports that the seven-seater will be held off until the following Detroit Auto Show in early 2016.
