It seems that the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg may have just seen the last generation of this model hit the streets back in the US however the rest of the world can look forward with anticipation to the new Touareg. The new car was recently unveiled in Beijing and is expected to be launched soon. Volkswagen has indeed come up with the third generation of their Tourareg and while much is expected from this car it somehow has managed to retain its chunky proportions. We had hoped for a radical makeover with flowing lines and an aerodynamic design but guess Volkswagen prefers to retain this for now. So let’s take a closer look at the car, shall we?
2019 Volkswagen Touareg SUV Overview:
The 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is a two row luxury-oriented SUV that’s being designed to cater mainly to the Australian and Chinese markets. The car itself is a third generation Touareg, and an SUV to boot but where Volkswagen has now opted to make a luxury SUV.
Even though the automaker was late to the game it seems that they may have finally caught up with the rest of the competition. If some of the rumours and the leaked images of the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg hold true, it seems that the model may well surprise all of us yet.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is widely expected to come with a brand new MLB Evo architecture along with shorter wheelbase. There’s no need to retain a longer wheelbase as the car will only contain two rows of seats. Furthermore, it also comes with a large chromed front grille, integrated LED headlights and a stylized bumper to finish off the look on the front. It also comes with wide flowing lines, right from the front grill to the tailgate, giving its unique look.
It is rumoured that the car is bigger in every aspect when compared to its previous generation and that translates to spacious interiors along with larger cargo space.
It’s also supposed to be lighter as it utilizes lighter materials and also comes with a neat design that rounds off the squared look that the new model seems to sport. It is expected that the new model will be more fuel efficient and comes with angular headlights and sharp corners on each panel.
The 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is tagged to be a luxury SUV and it seems that they may well have done just that. Volkswagen‘s new model comes with plush interiors, along with a night vision system that should enable your car and by extension yourself to monitor people as well as animals in the dark.
The interiors are stylish and come packed with a raft of features from the semi-autonomous accelerating, road assist, power steering, heated seats, a 15-inch infotainment panel which is huge along with a neat 12-inch gauge display unit. The new model also comes loaded with front facing cross-traffic assist system and a raft of other features.
Engine, Features, Price and Release Date
The 2019 Volkswagen Touareg comes with two V6 diesel engines at 228 or 282 horsepower; it is expected that Volkswagen will launch another model type soon with an HP of 482. It is expected that the Volkswagen will also come out with a plug-in hybrid as well. The new model is expected to be launched around the end of this year and is expected to get priced at $50000. It may be slightly higher than this depending on the model type. For now, we can only look at the pics of the new Touareg and heave a sigh of frustration.
