Redesigned VW Touareg Confirmed For Next Spring 28

Posted by Michael Gauthier in VW, VW Touareg on 12 28th, 2017


Volkswagen has confirmed the all-new Touareg will be introduced next spring.

The company didn’t have much to say about the model but noted the Touareg has been “redesigned right down to the very last LED.”

Previewed by the T-Prime GTE Concept, the 2019 Touareg will have an all-new front fascia with a prominent grille that is reminiscent of the Arteon. The model will also have bold character lines, slender taillights, and a tailgate-mounted rear spoiler.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but previous reports have suggested the Touareg could be offered with an assortment of different powertrains including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6, and a 3.0-liter V6 diesel. There could also be plug-in hybrid variant as well as a model with a V8 TDI engine. Rumors have also hinted at a Touareg R which could be equipped with the turbocharged VR6 engine which is expected to be used in the Arteon R.

The model will ride on the MLB Evo platform that underpins other vehicles such as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Lamborghini Urus. This change should enable the Touareg to be lighter and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor.

Toyota Highlander Tops Consumer Reports’ SUV Satisfaction Survey 22

As consumers have, for some time now, been flocking towards crossovers and SUVs, it’s inevitable that more of these vehicles end up on the used car market.

So, let’s say you’re looking for a 3- to 5-year old mid-sized SUV, which still has a lot of life left in it, do you know what to shortlist and what to avoid?

If not, then Consumer Reports’ owner satisfaction survey, put together using feedback from owners, should help you decide better, and Japanese automakers scored big here, bagging three spots in CR’s Top 5.

Toyota tops the list with the Highlander, which is followed by the 4Runner. Honda’s Pilot also made it into the Top 5, although it’s not all Japanese, as Jeep fans love the Wrangler in spite of its faults, as it’s a hoot to drive off-road, and most VW Touareg owners said they’d buy it again.

On the other hand, CR also lists three SUVs that owners were mostly dissatisfied with, and one of them comes from the FCA group – but you’ll have to watch the following video to find out more.

VW Tipped To Reveal New Touareg At April’s Beijing Show 18

Introduced back in 2010, the current-generation Volkswagen Touareg has grown a little long in the proverbial tooth. But relief is on its way.

According to Just-Auto, VW will reveal the all-new Touareg at the forthcoming Beijing Motor Show in April.

We’re expecting the new Touareg to grow in size slightly, in order to make room for the slate of smaller VW crossovers coming down the line. Still, it will likely remain more luxurious than the three-row Atlas. Look for its styling to borrow heavily from the T-Prime Concept GTE that Volkswagen unveiled the last time the show was in town, back in 2016.

The Touareg will be just the latest model to be based on the VW group’s MLB Evo platform that also underpins the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga, and Lamborghini Urus – and will form the basis for the forthcoming new Audi Q8 as well.

The jury’s still out, however, on whether the Touareg will spawn a slantbacked variant to go after the likes of the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe, or leave that territory entirely to the aforementioned Audi.

VW Recalls Over 57,000 Touareg Diesels From Around The World 13

Volkswagen will recall over 57,000 Touareg vehicles globally after Germany’s KBA automotive watchdog discovered that the 3.0-liter diesel engine used by the SUV has two illegal emissions control devices.

The recall affects Touaregs with the Euro 6 diesel engine, of which there are 57,600 vehicles globally. Reuters states that 25,800 of these are located in Germany.

In a statement, KBA confirmed the recall was ordered on December 8.

“Two inadmissible switch-off devices were found upon examination of the VW Touareg 3.0-litre diesel Euro 6 by the Federal Motor Vehicle Authority,” the watchdog confirmed.

KBA claims that the Touareg in question had an emissions-lowering program that was activated when the vehicle was examined on roller-beds under the new European driving cycle. Additionally, Touareg modes with selective catalytic reduction systems were found to illegally restrict the use of AdBlue.

In July, authorities in Germany announced a recall of 22,000 diesel-powered Porsche Cayenne models in Europe upon discovering similar emissions control devices.
