Releasing of 2020 Volkswagen Touareg is actually bad news for buyers in the US since this step is actually removing this model from America and sending it to markets in China and other countries. This also means that Phaeton that is currently popular in Europe will be removed to ensure the position to Touareg. For buyers in the US could be comforting the fact that it is planned to be replaced with seven-seats Atlas, surely bigger and longer than Touareg with better equipment offered.
There are no announced changes in term of the design of the 2020 Volkswagen Touareg from the last model since the 2018 model has been fully redesigned as a third generation of the car. However, it remains similarities with models like Bentley Bentayga, 2020 Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q8, and Lamborghini Urus. All of them make the list of 20 new models that will be offered to the European market next year, and being made in Bratislava.
2020 Volkswagen Touareg comes with a great combination of the equipment inside of the cabin, along with the modern and very attractive design of the cabin, too. For passenger’s enjoyment there are such things like heating of the seats and head, and massaging on the seats. There are also improved self-driving systems and driving assistant, and most of the controlling functions are touch-based.
Since 2020 Volkswagen Touareg is planned to be offered to markets that are outside of US, we are not sure if there will be changes in the engines. Most likely the new Touareg will use 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged TDI engine with 22 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, or a stronger version with 282 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Later next year the manufacturer could offer slightly redesigned 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, which could come as a base for a hybrid engine when paired with an electric engine and a 4.0-liter V8 diesel engine that produces 416 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. All engines come as paired with eight-speed automatic transmission and new 4 Motion Active Control for a better spread of strength on wheels.
2020 Volkswagen Touareg Release Date and Price
2020 Volkswagen Touareg is represented at Auto Show in Beijing and since then started the introduction in production. We are sure that it will be released before the end of 2019. However, it is hard to say how much it would cost. The prices of previous models were around $35,000 for entry models, but who knows how that price would go to foreign countries? Taking in mind that competition has the prices for even $10,000 higher, we can expect some increases in base price.
