Guess it’s only right for Volkswagen to shake things up a bit just before the world premier of the all-new Touareg tomorrow – six years (more or less) since the last model was introduced.
If it’s lack of presence on our roads has led the Touareg to slip out of your automotive memory, think of it as the larger, slightly more well-built version of the Tiguan that’s been raking up all the positive reviews from the local automotive media.
Sharing the same platform as the likes of Lamborghini’s Urus, the Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga, it’s said to be equipped with modern day quirks such as rear-wheel steering and air suspension.
The new Touareg will obviously be petrol and diesel-powered, with a high probability of plug-in hybrid option, exemplified by the Volkswagen T-Prime Concept GTE. Inside, a new Innovision Cockpit is set to take the helm on the infotainment front as Volkswagen’s latest digital instrument cluster combines two 12.0-inch and 15.0-inch displays to create a seamless surface.
