Describing 2018 Volkswagen Touareg we are witnessing of huge changes in Volkswagen started the last couple of years. They have planned to make changes in their SUV vehicles, and literally started it with greatness models, like Atlas, which has been shown in Los Angeles Auto Show in2016, Tiguan, firstly seen in Detroit and now Touareg. As we saw on prototypes shown by the manufacturer by now, new Touareg should be closest to new Atlas, with subtle differences. Besides some changes other cars have undergone, Touareg will have the same size, five seats as on previous model and almost the same cabin design. However, major changes are expected in platform, and engine strength.
The platform used for 2018 Volkswagen Touareg, Volkswagen Group’s MLB Design is shared with many luxury and famous models present on car market nowadays, like Audi Q5 and Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. Some parts of that platform are seen on Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini SUV, and T-Prime Concept GTE, which we could see on Auto Show in Beijing 2016. For Touareg new platform means wider look, longer wheelbase, and surely more dynamic look. However, if we said that it will still have five seats which mean that it will keep the same length and shape as current model with small changes. We are sure that new Touareg will be lighter than the last model.
The cabin in Volkswagen is always well designed with many devices in there, so we expect the same manner in 2018 Volkswagen Touareg, too. It is expected to see the new digital cluster, as on many new cars nowadays and perhaps devices which help in semi-autonomous driving, as well as different ways of driving assists. Many experts have confirmed that Volkswagen planned to include modern materials and change design in the cabin to be more attractive to younger buyers.
Even though it is early to speak about the engine performances at this moment, people who followed production in Volkswagen said that we should expect at least 4-inline engine in the base model, with optional V6 in higher trims, paired with 8-speed transmission. It is not unexpected to see some version of the unplug hybrid engine as well as petrol ones. However, all important numbers and information should be known at the end of the year when the new model will come out.
