Hop Inside The 2019 VW Touareg For A Spin In The Mountains

The internet knows pretty much everything about the third generation Volkswagen Touareg, except for what it’s like to live with it.

Still, while waiting for the first reviews to come out we have come across a video that portrays the Slovakia-made SUV in a spectacular mountain landscape.

Likely shot somewhere in the Alps, it allows us to experience the all-new Touareg for the first time. And despite not providing any feedback whatsoever, the person behind the wheel reveals what appears to be a comfortable and spacious cruiser packed with the brand’s latest technology.

The interior’s highlight is the 12-inch digital instrument cluster, along with the new 15-inch infotainment screen incorporated into the middle of the dashboard. These two displays may not be on par with Mercedes‘ dual-screen layout, visually at least, but they come pretty close.

The 2019 Touareg is quite punchy in this flavor, too, which is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 TDI diesel. It should also be more frugal than the current model, though VW hasn’t disclosed any figures yet. The only thing announced is that the six-cylinder oil burner is offered with two outputs: 231PS (228hp / 170kW) and 286PS (282hp / 210kW).

Volkswagen will release the full specifications, along with the available trim levels, equipment list and pricing, this summer, when the new Touareg goes on sale in Europe. The new SUV won’t be sold in North America, where VW will offer the sportier Atlas in that segment.

      Hey, look, it is an Audi!

      Oh, wait, it is the same car for thousands less…

    Such a gorgeous premium SUV, but likely with a pricetag to match. I dont think it’d do well in the USA anyhow as a VW and Audi has too many SUV’s as it is. Shame though, I like it better than the current Audi’s.
