2019 VW Touareg Shows Some Skin In New Teaser Video

The third generation Volkswagen Touareg is fast approaching its official introduction date, which has been set for March 23 and will take place in Beijing, China.

As a result, the German automaker has released a new teaser, which shows what appears to be a production-ready example going out for some quick on- and off-road driving in Spain.

The company’s flagship SUV has dropped most of its camouflage for the latest teaser video, showing a lot of skin on the sides. Its front and rear ends continue to be hidden away under vinyl stickers, but the new Touareg will follow the company’s latest design language, with a front end that’s very likely to be similar, up to a point, to the Arteon.

According to a previous teaser, the 2019 Touareg promises to offer a digital cockpit inside, said to be one of the largest in the segment, along with a new infotainment system.

Elsewhere, expect air suspension, rear-wheel steering and other interesting mechanical upgrades over the current iteration, which have become available for the vehicle as it rides on the MLB Evo platform. The architecture already underpins the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga, and will also be used by the upcoming Audi Q8.

The engine lineup will initially include two petrol engines, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 3.0-liter V6, along with a 3.0-liter V6 TDI diesel. Later on, the SUV will gain other units, including a possible V6 and V8 TDI, while a PHEV is said to be on the cards.
