Volkswagen Goes Upmarket With Latest Touareg Design

Sun 11th Feb 2018

Volkswagen’s ‘budget’ SUV, the Touareg, has long been thought of as a more affordable alternative to pricier models from other manufacturers, such as Audi’s Q7. But that school of thought could be about to change as the VW team prepare to tease the new-look Touareg in China next month.

With the promise of new-looks, state-of-art tech and a more spacious interior, the Touareg could have borrowed plenty from its stablemates, the Arteon and Tiguan.

Though few details are readily available for the new Touareg, we can expect air-suspension and rear-wheel steering, and Volkswagen’s new Innovision Cockpit digital technology is also set to be added.

If the Touareg is set for a push into more luxurious territory we should certainly expect to see an upgrade on the interior, with higher quality materials.

All this additional tech, performance and style might have been expected to come with a more premium price – however word from the VW  camp is that it will retain its entry-level price, so we should expect to see them retailing at the £45,000 mark.

The new Touareg will be unveiled in Beijing in March, with first customer deliveries expected in April.
