Volkswagen is not slowing down. Even after its crush due to the diesel emission scandal, the company is still positioned high in the automotive market. Now it is ready to deliver a new generation 2019 VW Touareg to the USA and Canada. The third-gen crossover is set to debut, but its release date is not available yet. Fans must be patient and listen carefully to rumors bringing specs and other info. The new Touareg will definitely come with TDi diesel engine, while we can also expect to see a hybrid version.
Recently, we could see the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg spied completely undisguised. However, it happened a few months ago and there will be some final modifications to the production model. Also, we couldn’t see the interior of 2019 VW Touareg, so it is another mystery. While we are waiting to hear official launching date, we can confirm that the price of the crossover is starting above $30,000.
2019 VW Touareg Exterior
Spied mule is showing many changes. That is not a surprise knowing what kind of problems Volkswagen got into with their fake emission reports. Now, the German carmaker must go strong, with new look and interior. We believe that 2019 VW Touareg was not spied completely undisguised by chance.
Changes on the new-gen of the crossover are eye-catching. Side panels, more aggressive front and attractive rear end are part of the new MLB platform. However, experts find similarities with its rivals, Audi Q7 and even Bentley Bentayga. A new grille and sharper nose will definitely attract owners that were happy with the previous edition of the SUV.
We still don’t know what 2019 Volkswagen Touareg carries inside. But, according to announcements, it will be the best model ever thanks to advanced hi-tech features inside the cabin. Also, Touareg is going to be more spacious, bringing more room for passengers and cargo. The German manufacturer won’t miss installing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay services.
2019 VW Touareg Engines and Specs
Another thing we can’t see on spy shots is powertrain. But, it is not hard to guess that 2019 VW Touareg is coming with both four-cylinder and V-6 units. A 2.0-liter I-4 is the base unit and it pairs a turbocharger for better output. The other one is using a supercharger. It is a 3.6-liter V-6. We still don’t know outputs of these mills, as well as transmissions mated to each of them. A CVT is a likely choice.
The 2019 VW Touareg Hybrid is going to pair the base four-pot engine with electric motor and battery. The special transmission that holds plug-in system will get a help from lithium-ion unit to deliver better mileage, boost output, and cut emissions.
Volkswagen Touareg Diesel
While the other markets could see 2019 VW Touareg with TDi engine, diesel days in the USA and Canada came to the end. Emission scandal hits the company pretty hard, and Volkswagen is not going to launch vehicles with such drivetrains in foreseeable future. Instead, they are preparing hybrid, which can possibly grow up to all-electric SUV. On the other hand, seeing a Touareg as a diesel would be a huge surprise.
