Volkswagen has announced that it will unveil the new Touareg 2018 in a few months. Production of the new car will begin in November with the first deliveries scheduled for next year.
The avant-garde certainly has no drama, with an enormous chrome grille, deep air intakes and aggressive traffic lights that actually extend on the base of the VW badge. At the back, there are careful taillights whose charts refer to the symbol often used to show the signal strength of a mobile phone or, you can imagine, the amount of charge remaining in the batteries of a plug -in hybrid. The overall look is more dynamic than the current Tuareg, especially around the rear wheel, where there is a subtle blister to create a stronger shoulder line.
Inside, the front of cabin is dominated by the enormous touch screen mounted in the center of the instrument panel but tilted towards the driver. This is a 15-inch screen as large as many laptops, in fact, and VW engineers plan to use the increased workspace to allow configuration levels previously not visible on an interface car. As regards the concept, it is clear that the switching of the VW MLB chassis technology has helped the packaging; even with the lower roof and panorama panoramic roof of the car, there is plenty of room for maneuver for six feet. The aft cabin is arranged in a two-seater format, with a large central tunnel between the passengers and three other screens, each on the back of the front head restraints, and a portrait-down display near the center console. The additional screens are not supposed to produce, but while the four-seater configuration will not be the standard layout of 2018 Volkswagen Touareg, it could still appear later in the life of the car.
VW admitted that it was running on a turbocharged six-cylinder engine for the Arteon and the Atlas, so there’s a good chance it will end up in the Touareg at some point. Meanwhile, the VR6 will probably power the Touareg in the United States. There should also be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder ETI for some markets, as well as a hybrid plug-in version with the suffix “GTE”. All drive wheels and an automatic transmission should be standard throughout the range.
Despite occupying the popular middle-sized crossover segment, the 2018 Volkswagen Touareg has never been very taken off in the states, possibly because Volkswagen called it a luxury vehicle and rated it accordingly with an MSRP of almost $ 50,000
