After eight years in the shadow of the competition, the German giant focused on winning the largest car market in the world – China. This means that Volkswagen will finally introduce a new generation of its large SUV model, which is much expected. The new 2019 VW Touareg will have the world premiere at the car showroom in Beijing in March 2018. It is expected to be slightly larger than its predecessor. Its design will remind the T-Prime Concept GTE, which was also presented at the Beijing auto show, but in 2016.
2019 VW Touareg – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The latest 2019 Volkswagen Touareg will be the latest model based on Volkswagen’s MLB Evo’s mechanical platform. Using the new platform has enabled the new Touareg to be lighter than its predecessor. In addition, it will be much more economical. This type of platform is used by the current Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus. It will also be sold with a wide range of drive options. These include gasoline and diesel engines, as well as versions with an electrically driven drive. The third generation of the Volkswagen Touareg is inspired by the Arteon model.
The newest 2019 VW Touareg comes with a new design with the falang of innovative driving auxiliary systems. These systems give the vehicle maximum comfort and safety. It will have one of the largest digital cockpits in the class-Innovision Cockpit. It will also have a new multimedia system. The new 2019 Touareg will have an improved drive mechanism, air suspension, rear-wheel drive ability and many other security systems. They will allow the ride with the new model to be dynamic, but above all safe.
Considering the wide range of features, the new VW Touareg 2019 comes with a more luxurious cabin framed with better quality and more expensive materials. There are many luxuries in this model. However, both the look and the luxury in the cabin are not important as a complete design that allows Touareg to be one of the most capable Volkswagens.
Namely, using lightweight, but harder materials, the new 2019 VW Touareg is lighter than the previous 200 pounds. The new VW Touareg 2019 will have a much wider interior. There is still no official information whether it will have two touchscreens as well as its more expensive cousins using the same platform. This will be the most luxurious Volkswagen model, which will presumably hold that status longer.
2019 VW Touareg – Modification under the Hood
The engine is still unknown. However, according to speculations, a standard 3.0-liter V6 diesel unit is expected, which will produce 270 hp. Also, the turbocharger will be available, which will be able to produce 340 hp.
Additionally, the plug-in hybrid should be a combination of 252 hp turbochargers and 100kW electric motors that would lift the power to 380 bhp with an electric range of 50 km. It also announces the return of the V8 engine, as well as the most powerful R version of the Touareg.
2019 VW Touareg – Price and Expected Release Date
As we have already mentioned, the new 2019 VW Touareg will be ready for the world premiere, which will be held at the end of March in China. The starting price of the model will be around $ 50,000.
