Reckon this would sell well in NZ an Aussie if the old Toyota surf was anything to go by.

Do Toureg or Tiguan not have a 7 seat option?

Nope, both are currently 5 seats only.

The new Tiguan will be launched in two versions; 5 and 7 seat, but it's more likely that individual markets will get one or the other, not both. The 5 seater is already out, and the 7 seater has been spied: http://www.motor1.com/news/94108/vw-tiguan-lwb-spied-completely-uncovered/

North America is also getting it's own all new mid size 7 seat 'Made in USA' SUV: http://www.motor1.com/news/94141/vw-teramont-spied-almost-ready-for-its-debut-later-in-2016/ - could eventually go global?

Interestingly it looks like it may actually happen.
