Volkswagen to expand SUV range from two models to six

The Wolfsburg-based company is working on tripling the number of Volkswagen-branded SUVs in its range from two to six.

Two anonymous sources who spoke to Bloomberg said the company was working on a “coupe” and a stretched version of the next-generation Tiguan.

The new Tiguan is expected to debut in 2015 and will be based on the MQB platform that underpins various products, including the Mk7 Volkswagen Golf, Audi A3 and the latest Skoda Octavia. Thanks to its new architecture, the second-generation Tiguan is said to be lighter and more fuel efficient than the model it will replace.

In addition, there are solid plans to build a five-metre-long, three-row, seven-seat SUV modelled on the CrossBlue concep. This vehicle should enter production in 2016, although it may be delayed as no factory has yet been confirmed. Reports indicate that the Mexican and Tennessee governments are in an incentive war to lure production of the large SUV to their jurisdiction.
