We’ve got some great news coming from Volkswagen brand! It seems that the third generation of the well-known Touareg has been on its way to hit the market of crossovers soon as a 2019 Volkswagen Touareg model. We believe that with its updates in terms of design, technology and engine options, the new Touareg will remain one of the best-selling SUVs in its class.
- Handles Well
- Excellent Brakes
- Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
- Bad on gas
- Not good against the competition
When it comes to appearance of the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg, you can expect this model to be even more attractive and powerful than its predecessor. It will also get much more sophisticated and elegant styling. Although being large in dimensions, this crossover belongs to mid-size SUVs. According to the information our team has got, the new Touareg will abandon the aging PL52 platform and replace it with a new MLB architecture. The wheelbase of this model will be shorter, so you should not expect a three-row seating configuration inside. The overall design will be dominated by sharper edges and definitely more luxurious features. This model has been largely compared to its cousin Tiguan and some would say that it will be very difficult to see any difference. Speaking of exterior features, the first update that you will probably notice is that the LED headlights have got a meaner look. They will be more angular and get sharper edges. In the back part of the vehicle, the taillight will also use the LED technology and appear narrower.
As we have already mentioned, inside the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg you will find two rows of stylish and comfortable seats that can be easily adjusted. The cabin will be spacious enough for five adult passengers and you will notice some serious changes and improvements in terms of design and technology. Volkswagen will use high-quality materials such as leather in higher trim levels. The driver will get modern dashboard with a 9.2-inch touch-screen display in the center console. It will provide the newest infotainment and entertainment system that includes lots of next-generation features such as navigation system, climate control, audio system and various connectivity options. The new Touareg will provide safety and stability due to its safety systems and driver assist features that will also come as standard.
It has been said that the engine of the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg will come as either four or six-cylinder. One of the possible versions, found probably in base model and lower trims, could be a 2.0-liter inline-four. However, it has not been confirmed yet whether the new Touareg will keep its current 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6 or replace it with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Be that as it may, either of them should be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Volkswagen Touareg Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg has still been a mystery. The estimated price of this luxurious crossover starts around $50,000, but we expect more information soon. This is all good but against competitors like Jeep Grand Cherokee 2020 and 2019 Jaguar I-Pace not going good.
