2019 Volkswagen Touareg previewed in video series

Volkswagen has launched a new video series before the official reveal of its new midsize SUV, the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg.

Initially releasing a history video (below) to detail the various iterations of the Touareg, the new videos show the new SUV tackling various road types and surfaces on its way to Beijing, where it will be shown for the first time at the Beijing motor show.

The three-part series shows the Touareg still with a thin layer of camouflage, but we can definitely see the shape of the vehicle and its new look grille.

Similar to the Arteon, the headlights and grille are more intertwined (as seen in spy shots below), but the big focus will be on luxury.

While previous Touaregs were nice inside, the new model is aiming to tackle the lucrative high-end market that China offers, hence the launch in Beijing.

The interior is also going to be far simpler than previous models, but there’s more of a reliance on screens. The center screen will be huge and there’s also the large digital instrument screen as well.

While there aren’t many details about what will be powering the Touareg, as it’s a Chinese market vehicle initially (and the fact that diesel engines aren’t the flavor of the month), we can be sure that it will feature a range of petrol options.

Most likely will be the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EA888 engine as found in the Skoda Kodiaq, but we’re also looking forward to the same 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 as in the Audi SQ5.

All the details will be announced on March 23, just before the Geneva Motor Show, and we’ll bring you all the specifications once they’ve been announced.
