Ever since it made the official debut in Beijing, the third generation of the VW Touareg has been keenly anticipated among the fans. However, it seems that popular 2019 VW Touareg USA crossover has been planned to hit the European and the Chinese market first and then the US, if it actually happens.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 VW Touareg, we must say that the fans of this popular midsize SUV will be more than satisfied with the upcoming changes and improvements in terms of design. The new Touareg will ride on the MLB platform shared with such models as the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. It means that this crossover will appear larger in size than its predecessor. It will be longer and wider, which guarantees better handling and stability as well as the overall performance. The performance of the new Touareg will be additionally enhanced thanks to those lightweight materials that the carmaker will use for its chassis. So, you will get bigger dimensions and lighter weight. Perfect, isn’t it? The upcoming crossover should look more attractive, modern and classy, but also more dynamic and a bit aggressive. It will stand on standard 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior of the 2019 VW Touareg can be described as ultimately modern and upgraded, even futuristic thanks to its serious improvements inside the cabin, especially when it comes to its high-tech area. The company will use some premium-quality materials such as leather, at least in higher trim levels. In those top trims, the seats will be power-adjustable and they will offer options such as ventilation and massage. As we have already mentioned, most of the changes and updates involve the dashboard, instrument cluster and a center console. Besides it 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, you will have the chance to get a 15-inch infotainment touch-screen. It will provide features such as navigation system, four-zone air conditioning, a 14-speaker sound system and Bluetooth connectivity. This SUV will also include automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, a night vision camera and other advanced safety systems and driver assist features.
The 2019 VW Touareg should come with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that will be available in two versions. It will deliver the output of either 231 or 286 horsepower. The V6 petrol could also be offered, but the fans will probably love the choice found in those top trim levels. It will use a 4.0-liter V8 diesel. The plug-in hybrid is also expected. The new Touareg will get an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
