Few days ago, we learned that the new 2018 Volkswagen Touareg is expected to be presented at the Beijing exhibition in April 2018, but now we have released photos of the third generation of the Touareg without a camouflage trail, since it was photographed during its official photo shoot.
As you can see, the model is borrowing enough evidence from the T-Prime Concept GTE, which we saw in April 2016 at the Beijing exhibition. The car is based on the MLB Evo platform that is already using the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga, which means that while it will be larger than its predecessor, it will be lighter, falling below two tons.
It features LED daylight C design units and a 12 “digital instrument cluster inside, with the 15” curved touchscreen of the information and entertainment system. As for the engines, there will be gasoline and petroleum units, and a brand new diesel engine with 300 horses will be available as well as a V6 gasoline engine with about 330 horses. Also, logic says the new Touareg will also have a plug-in hybrid version that will use the Q7 e-tron drivetrain – a three-liter TDI with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery.
The spaces inside will grow, with the steering wheel not having conventional buttons, since they will have been replaced by touch surfaces. In the rear there is a 9.6 “touch screen, positioned centrally between the seats, where rear passengers can adjust many functions.
