The teaser campaign for the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg continues as the automaker has released a new promotional video that features the company’s head of design.
In the clip, Klaus Bischoff says the third-generation model will have a “strong personality in its facial expression” as it has LED Matrix headlights and LED signature lighting units. Moving further back, onlookers will see a “slim, muscular, athletic” shape and “huge” wheels. Bischoff went on to say the Touareg is more elegant and innovative than before and will have a “beautiful” rear end which is “very sculpted.”
Volkswagen hasn’t released many interior photos but Bischoff described the cabin as a “total revolution” as it will feature 12- and 15-inch displays which are integrated into the instrument panel and appear to be one massive unit that measures 23 inches wide. Bischoff went on to say the screens will be customizable so drivers can configure them to suit their tastes. Besides the dual displays, the Touareg with have real wood trim and aluminum accents.
The Touareg will be unveiled tomorrow and it is slated to be offered with an assortment of 3.0-liter V6 engines. The petrol unit is slated to produce 335 hp (250 kW), while the diesel should have outputs of 228 hp (170 kW) and 282 hp (210 kW). Later on, we can expect a plug-in hybrid variant as well as a V8 diesel option.
Regardless of what’s under the hood, the Touareg will be offered with a new rear axle steering system. It promises to provide greater agility and directional stability at higher speeds, while also reducing the turning radius from 12.20 meters (40.02 feet) to 11.13 meters (36.51 feet).
