The third-generation 2019 VW Touareg is almost ready to be released. According to spy shots that are circling on the internet, the German manufacturer is testing a newly redesigned model. The new Touareg will hit the European markets this year, and U.S. dealerships will have to wait for 2019.
The gasoline, diesel and hybrid refreshed engines are offered, and new MLB platform will make this SUV lighter as a result. Interior is packed with plenty of new latest features and the exterior design suffered some change for an instance. Basically, Touareg is a comfortable and large SUV, and while its name is odd, the driving specifics aren’t.
2019 VW Touareg is More Sharp, with More Stamina
The approaching 2019 VW Touareg will keep its current dimensions and proportions. As the vehicle is moving through generations, they become slightly bigger, but there are no changes to new Volkswagen’s vehicle in that segment. The reason is maybe that the German company is already making a larger, seven-seat SUV.
Speaking of styling, the front grille is larger and its flanked by new headlamps. Running lights are LED are are C-shaped, with sporty bumper included below them. The taillights at the rear will also feature some decrease, and the rear bumper suffered more chrome work. Spy shots didn’t help us to find out more about the exterior design.
2019 VW Touareg Interior Enhancement
The upcoming model 2019 VW Touareg will feature more storage space inside the cabin and it will offer a slightly bigger trunk area. Headroom and legroom are also enhanced, especially at the rear seats. Headroom is better now thanks to a lower seating position. New MLB platform is also helpful when packing stuff.
The next-generation of VW Touareg will borrow some features from the T-Prime Concept. The same touchscreen that is also in current one is in the center of a dashboard. Both dashboard and instrument cluster gained more modern design with new high-tech features. Stuff like adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking are still optional.
