Watch Volkswagen’s Unveiling Of The New Touareg In Beijing Right Here

The 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is celebrating its world premiere in Beijing, China, Friday, at 10:00am CET (5:00am EST).

Brought to China after a road trip of more than 16,000km (9,942miles), which started in Bratislava, Slovakia, where production will commence soon, it’s billed as the most advanced and dynamic SUV ever developed by the German car brand.

So, what’s there to keep in mind? That would be the Arteon-like styling that’s found on the exterior and inside, and the Group’s MLB architecture beneath. The platform is shared not only with the latest Audi Q7, but with the more posh Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus, too.

Volkswagen released a few images with the cabin where the more premium materials are visible, in addition to the ambient lighting. Nevertheless, one of the most exciting features is what the company calls two displays “integrated into the instrument panel” that “appear as one surface”, likely similar to what Mercedes has done to its vehicles, and will do to the new GLE, one of Touareg’s challengers.

At first, customers should expect two petrols and a diesel, but the engine family is going to grow. Some sources talk about a potential VR6 for the Touareg R, as well as a V8 TDI and a PHEV, so things should be interesting in this department, as well.

Volkswagen’s new flagship SUV, which will be kept outside North America, will also get other features such as air suspension and rear-wheel steering.

We expect it to cost more than the current iteration, which starts at €54,700 (equal to $67,267) in Germany.

    the grey one in the middle looks great… but man, that tablet interior is HELL NO!

    • I wonder what is the reliability of these things?

  • Christian
  • Ironic that VW China CEO makes the whole presentation in English, yet this Touareg, will not be sold in the largest English-speaking country, and the wealthiest country in the history of human civilization…the United States…

      “…wealthiest country in the history of human civilization…the United States…”
      Sorry, but I giggled.

      Also: Its maybe a solid car, but still a Volkswagen made in Slovakia – what do you really expect?
      You can have a GLE or an X5 for the same money while its made in the US by good Manufacturers.
      VW just have too much competition for the Touareg in the US, so its maybe worth to just sell it mainly in Europe (where we only have GLE,X5,Q7 and some Rovers as competitors – Jeep&Co. aren’t really sold here).

      • Hey, that’s a fact is true…hehe…I agree, however I’m in the market for a mid-sized SUV and would have bought the new Toureg over the M-B or Q7 because I prefer the aesthetics of the VW…
