Volkswagen has announced its longer wheelbase Tiguan Allspace and plans to unveil it in January at the North American International Auto Show.

The lengthened version of the best-seller will be presented at the Detriot show in January, and will simply be known as the Tiguan in America. Whereas, in Europe, the ‘Allspace’ designation will be assigned to distinguish it from the existing models in the range.

As would be expected, the longer version gets more room inside and a longer wheelbase, although there’s no confirmed details as to whether the longer version will also sport a seven-seater option as is expected.

The Tiguan Allspace will be the first Volkswagen SUV to sit on the MQB platform – the architecture that spans across the VW Group range – and will share the same chassis as the Audi Q3.

It’s expected that the Tiguan Allspace is just the beginning of a larger Tiguan family with a coupe version expected to take on stylistic SUVs like the Range Rover Evoque.

We should know more about this car when it's properly unveiled in January, but we're hoping to have official renders before then.
