German carmaker Volkswagen has been working on an extended wheelbase variant of its Tiguan SUV for a while now.
The new SUV which will be called the Tiguan XL has now been spotted almost totally undisguised in China ahead of its launch later this year.
The Tiguan XL SUV showed almost no difference in terms of styling compared to its normal sized sibling sold in Europe.
The only change that you'll notice if you put both SUVs side-by-side is the increased wheelbase which will allow for an extra row of seats in the back of the SUV, bring the seating capacity up to seven.
As of now, the Tiguan XL is not expected to make its way onto Indian shores anytime soon. Instead, Volkswagen will bring the normal sized Tiguan to India as part of the nine SUV onslaught planned for India by VW and Skoda.
The Tiguan will be powered a 2-litre diesel engine producing either 148bhp and 340Nm of torque or 181bhp and 380Nm of torque. A petrol option may also be present. All the engines will be mated to VW's 7-speed DSG gearbox as standard and all-wheel drive will be available as an option.
