As we said, the new 2019 Volkswagen Touareg will be based on VW’s much more recent MLB Evo architecture. They will use the short version of the platform, which means that the car will share its bases with the Cayenne and the Q5. However, unlike these two, the VW will be the car for people looking for comfort compared to performance. The base model will have a softer suspension configuration than the rest. The high end versions of the car, on the other hand, will use an air conduction system with different levels of adjustment. As for the brakes, we expect the car to have approximately the same engines as the Q5. On its predecessor, the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg will be wider, lower and a little longer. The car will also have a longer wheelbase, which translates into more cabin space. Although VW did not say a word, we managed to see the model completely discovered not so long ago. Since the car seemed ready for production, it can be assumed that its disclosure is not so far away. In fact, it is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of 2018. Its price will probably be almost identical to that of the current generation.
Exterior and Interior
Outdoors, the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg carries out a series of updates, some of which differentiate it from its cousins of the Audi and Porsche brand. In the front, VW lowered the height of the top and increased the height of the grid. This eventually led to a smaller and more refined air barrier, and we would say if we said that these corner vents did not remind us of the golf front. The headlights are smooth and thin, with a sleek new LED design. As for the lateral profile, it is more precise than ever. The body lines have been improved and improved compared to the outgoing model with the rear legs that closely resembles the Audi Q5. The size remains largely the same, but the lower corner of the rear window is now much higher. More important is the roofline which is now more inclined than ever, which serves an aerodynamic purpose, but also provides a new style. The rear leaves the appearance of yesteryear and now has a steeper tailgate that is a little higher than before. The taillights are more refined with a sporty LED design and a lighter print than before. The exhaust outlets are more rectangular and the insert at the bottom of the fascia is now wider, creating a more dominant appearance.
The interior of the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg has changed dramatically. Not only is it sportier, but it’s full of technology. The center console is higher and the shifter adopts the look of Porsche and Audi. The cupholders are now parallel to the shifter, which allows it to be a little thinner than before. However, the most aesthetically important thing is the inclusion of stitched leather, perforated seats and the corner of the board that points directly to the driver’s information and entertainment display. On the technological front, the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg benefits from all the advantages of the VW Innovision cab. It has the 12 inch digital cab similar to what we’re used to seeing at Audi, and there’s a huge 15 inch infotainment screen as long as you opt for the Discover Premium Infotainment System. This new system works with the instrument cluster and dramatically reduces the need for physical buttons on the dashboard and center console. When Volkswagen redesigned the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg, he did it thinking about space. This is why it is not only longer but also wider. As such, the cargo space has been increased to 810 liters with the rear seats upright. This represents an increase of 113 liters compared to the outgoing generation. Full specifications have not been released for the interior yet, but you can bet that the volume and passenger space has also increased. In terms of weight, sometimes more can mean less since the new 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is lighter than 106 kg, which translates into better fuel economy and better handling.
This is where things really enjoy themselves. Look, Volkswagen does not plan to bring the new 2019 Volkswagen Touareg to the United States, it will probably not surprise you to see that there is only one gas engine to take. But we will come back in more detail in a minute. At launch, there are two variants of a V-6 diesel engine is available, with a PS 231 and PS 286 other delivery (227 and 281 horsepower, respectively). Volkswagen plans to soon offer a V6 diesel engine. 8 with 421 horses (415 horses) and a V-6 petrol with about 340 horses (335 horses). no couple is still known, but would not be surprised if we say that the torque loss in the mid-600 range for the V-8 diesel and probably between 350 and 450 lb-ft for the V-6 diesel engines. And for those of you who want a lighter environmental impact, VW is also working on a hybrid engine plugin that will offer 367 hp (361 hp) engine and electric motors. This specific powertrain is designed with China in mind, but VW said that “the exact release date in Europe is still open,” which means that also come to Europe at some point. Our hypothesis would be the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020 at the latest.
