More Details About the Longer, Wider, New Touareg

By: Evan Williams
Volkswagen teased a sketch of the all-new third-gen Touareg last week. It won’t launch until later this year, but new details about the crossover have come out.
A new report from Motoring Australia has some new info about the new SUV. For a start, it’s getting bigger. About 2.5-inches longer and one inch wider than the second-generation. That puts it on the same wheelbase as the Porsche Cayenne it shares a platform with. The extra length means that the new model will get a third row and add seating for seven for the first time. Despite the size gains expect it to be lighter, by about 140 lbs.
Inside, the new Touareg gets what VW calls an Innovision Cockpit. Motoring says that the name isn’t just a rebadged version of the cockpit display like in the current Tiguan, but a curved glass touchscreen that runs up to 28-inches wide. That makes it an infotainment-dash merged screen, like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Engine choices will include a twin-turbo V8 diesel related to the Q7’s, as well as 3.0L V6 gas and diesel engines, according to the report. All engines will get at least a 48-volt mild hybrid system, and a full plug-in hybrid will be available.
The chassis used means that the Touareg will have access to active roll bars, active rear-steer, and three-chamber air suspension. VW has also said that it will have Level 3 self-drive hardware, but legislation won’t be ready for it at launch.
The Touareg is being pushed out of the US by the Atlas, which means that most sales are expected to come from China. The US is getting two other new VW SUVs in 2019 and 2020, but they won’t be the Touareg.
