The third generation of the VW Touareg will be bigger and more technological: 2019 Volkswagen Touareg will be present in a few days to be sold in mid-2018.
2019 Volkswagen Touareg Redesign; Bigger?
Volkswagen has announced that it wants to focus on SUVs and plans to launch 19 around the world within the next three years when it is expected that the demand for this type of cars will increase further than today. One of these novelties is the third generation of the Volkswagen Touareg, the large SUV waiting in 2018 that will be updated thoroughly in mechanics, onboard technologies and also in style, as can be seen from the images published by Auto Motor a Sport and Taken during a photo session. The new model seems longer than the one today for sale (measuring 480 cm) and appears more racy, thanks to details of style to “streamline” the lateral shape like the grain on the side or the rear strut very inclined. The front panel recalls the Arteon sedan, equipped with a large mask that seems to “flow” into the headlights.

the increase in length is due to technical reasons since the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg adopts the built-in MLB Evo front longitudinal engine, which the German group reserves to the most prestigious SUVs, as Bentayga Bentley SUV, Audi Q7 and Lamborghini Urus, all with length above 500 cm. The news will be deep inside, where the dashboard takes on a look almost futuristic, thanks to the large screen that occupies largely customizable most of the dashboard and performs the functions of the instrument panel and multimedia system. In the picture below is visible in one of the concepts Volkswagen T-Prime concept GTE that in 2016 had anticipated the new Tuareg.
2019 Volkswagen Touareg Engine Specs; Hybrid 270 Horsepower
from a technical point of view, the rumors speak of a weight below 2,000 kg, despite the increase in size. Almost certain the use on the Volkswagen Touareg of the V6 3.0 turbo diesel engine with about 270 HP, which in Europe should be among the most chosen, and we talk about a plug-in hybrid version which, probably, will combine a 4-cylinder turbocharged with 252 hp with an electric motor from Approximately 160 hp for a system power of approximately 381 hp and an autonomy of 50 km with the only electric motor.
Nice the non-embossed screen but integrated into the dashboard line a bit like on the Alphas. Unknown instead on the two electric circulars pseudoplastic in the area brakes by hand, which will be? On Diesel, I would think if I propose it again, especially when the hybrid is already present.
