2020 VW Touareg SUV; Specs, Interior, Price & Availability
New VW Touareg official introduced by Volkswagen. and here are some important things that we auto-summary for you. When is 2020 VW Touareg available in the USA?
Sulking at the Geneva fair that has just closed, it is on the other side of the planet, in Beijing, that Volkswagen has chosen to present in the world premiere the third generation of its Touareg.
2020 VW Touareg Styling & Design
From the first glance, impossible to confuse the 2020 Volkswagen Touareg with the current as the difference is glaring, especially at the level of the front, very close to that of the T-Roc. The grille has therefore been enlarged, enhanced and now incorporates the spotlights. It occupies the whole width of the front side, which reinforces the dynamic but also the statutory side as it must not be forgotten that the Touareg is the flagship of Volkswagen.
The profile is for its part marked by very pronounced cash lines. The rounded back is more consensual despite particularly shapely wings. This aesthetic transformation also goes through the modification of the dimensions. The new Touareg is more imposing. It now measures 4.88 m long (+ 7.7 cm) and 1.98 m wide (+ 4 cm). The height loses one centimeter while the wheelbase remains stable at 2.89 M.
2020 VW Touareg Inside – Innovision Cockpit
Inside, it’s a huge slap. Volkswagen strikes a big blow. The version presented – in the high-end finish – was equipped with the “Innovision Cockpit” which is the great novelty of this Touareg. The driver is, therefore, facing him the Info Active Display, a 100% digital instrumentation of 12.3 inches. It is supported by a high head display. But impossible not to notice the immense multimedia screen of 15-inch touch and also working by the gesture, one of the largest of the current production. Beyond its size, its operation was particularly fluid and fast, very close to a shelf. It is also totally customizable. Reserved for the highest finishes, it will be replaced by a smaller 9.3-inch on the entry-level levels. Visually, these two screens impress; We must welcome the integration work that has been done. The presentation is more flattering than on board some Mercedes which also offer a large digital slab. Finally, the only complaint could come from the fact that everything goes through the screen, even the air conditioning controls. Experience has shown us that physical shortcuts are often very popular with customers.
With a wheelbase that remains the same, no change for the habitability, which remains generous. On the other hand, the chest volume progresses enormously with 810 liters compared to 697 liters before, a gain of 113 liters. It will, of course, benefit from an automatic tailgate and its loading height can vary thanks to the pneumatic suspensions.
The Touareg range will include 4 finishes (R-line, Carat, exclusive R-line and exclusive carat). Even if the composition of each is not stopped, the equipment promises to be rich including heated and ventilated seats, night vision, Matrix LED spotlights, etc.
To design this new 2020 VW Touareg, Volkswagen has taken the base of the MLB Evo platform, which also served the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7. Its use has an impact on the weight of the vehicle, which is lightened by 106 kg compared to the current generation. In order to ensure a dynamism and a comfort of the foreground, it is barded of driving aids. It can thus receive an active roll control, 4 steering wheels, a semi-autonomous drive thanks to the adaptive speed controller coupled with the maintenance of track in the traffic jams and in the work area (direction and maintenance of track, acceleration and Partially automated braking up to 60 km/h), pneumatic suspensions but also a towing assistant (a very important function for Touareg owners knowing that it is able to tow trailers weighing up to 3.5 tonnes).
2020 VW Touareg Engine Specs; Diesel & Hybrid
Under its hood, one will first find only V6. When it is marketed, it will be available with two types of diesel: the 3.0 TDI of 231 and 286 hp and a petrol of 340 hp. A 421-HP 4.0 TDI V8 will arrive later. A refillable hybrid engine with a cumulative power of 367 HP is planned, initially in China: its exact launch date in Europe is not yet fixed. Note that all of its engines will be coupled to the 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF. The Touareg will be available in 4-wheel drive and offer different driving modes, whether for road or offroad driving.
The 2019 VW Touareg Hybrid will combine the base four-pot motor with electric engine and battery. The uncommon transmission that holds module framework will get an assist from lithium-particle unit to convey better mileage, support yield, and cut outflows.
Volkswagen Touareg Diesel
While alternate markets could see 2019 VW Touareg with TDi motor, diesel days in the USA and Canada arrived at the end. Discharge embarrassment hits the organization quite hard, and Volkswagen wouldn’t dispatch vehicles with such drivetrains in not so distant. Rather, they are planning hybrid, which can grow up to all-electric SUV. Then again, seeing a Touareg as a diesel would be an enormous astonishment.
