2020 VW Touareg Redesign, Price & Release Date | VW USA | The Touareg is a recent lineup coming from VW. It is a lineup of a mid-size, crossover SUV. So far, the lineup has been able to stand out in the SUV market, which is not something easy to do considering the competitiveness of the market. Despite being a new and recent lineup, the Touareg has proven its capability, reliability, and ability to provide comfort.
Soon, we are going to see a new Touareg: the 2020 VW Touareg. If you want to know how the upcoming Touareg will look like, what kind of engines will it have, its features, and other details, you should read on. Below, we have possible redesigns, performance, safety features, release date, and price of the upcoming Touareg.
2020 VW Touareg Redesign
Being a recent lineup, we are unlikely to see major redesigns soon. In other words, the 2020 VW Touareg is more likely to be a carryover model than not. It will have most of what the previous model has. Of course, not all but most of them.
Although major redesigns are unlikely for the upcoming Touareg, it is not something bad. In terms of exterior and interior, the Touareg is excellent. That being said, we can expect some small changes, updates, and tweaks for the 2020 Touareg.
The current Touareg has a very striking exterior. It looks sleek, stylish, and futuristic. The exterior is filled with lines and curves, making the SUV even more redefined. We expect the 2020 Touareg to continue this. Some small changes may be given for the 2020 Touareg but they will not change the overall look of the SUV.
2020 VW Touareg Interior
The interior of the 2020 Touareg will have plenty of space for everyone, including back seat passengers. As a luxury SUV, there will be premium materials used inside. The upcoming Touareg will also have a large cargo space as well. The overall design, however, will be similar to the current Touareg’s.
The Touareg lineup features a system known as Innovision Cockpit. Just as its predecessors, the 2020 Touareg will have it. This system comprises of a 12.3-inch digital display as well as a 15-inch touchscreen display on its dashboard. Although these two screens are separated, they work together, creating a fully digital control interface. Even better, the system is fully customizable. Drivers can customize the displays and menus according to their liking. This system acts as the central control system since it replaces all the buttons usually present in a vehicle.
2020 VW Touareg Specs
The current Touareg has three engine options: a 3.0L diesel engine, another 3.0L diesel engine but less powerful, and a 3.0L petrol engine. Being a carryover model, we can expect the 2020 Touareg to come with these engines as well.
The first engine offered is a 3.0L, turbocharged V6 diesel engine. This engine is paired with an eight-speed auto transmission gearbox. This engine is capable of generating up to 282 horsepower. This is the standard engine.
The second engine offered is another 3.0L, turbocharged V6 diesel engine. The difference between this engine and the first engine is their output. This engine is less powerful compared to first as it is only capable of generating up to 228 horsepower.
The third engine offered is a 3.0L, turbocharged V6 petrol engine. Compared to the diesel engines, this engine is more powerful. It is able to generate up to 336 horsepower, which is higher than the output of the diesel engines.
For the current Touareg, a plug-in hybrid is said to come in late 2018. The plug-in hybrid is supposedly able to generate a whopping 417 horsepower, making it the most powerful among the other. Unfortunately, it is not clear when will it be released or whether or not it will be carried over for the 2020 Touareg.
The upcoming 2020 Touareg will have various safety features. The previous Touareg the following features as the standard: adaptive cruise control, emergency braking system, speed limiter, distance monitoring system, blind-spot warning, and lane keeping assistance. The upcoming Touareg should come with these safety features.
As for independent crash tests, the lineup has not done them yet. It should not be a problem, though. The Touareg lineup is closely related to the Audi Q7, a lineup that has a very high test score. The Audi Q7 has been scored 94% for passengers’ protection. It also has excellent scores for electronic safety systems effectiveness. Since the Touareg is closely related with the Audi Q7, it is safe to assume that the Touareg is quite safe.
2020 VW Touareg Release Date and Price
So far, VW has yet to make a statement regarding the release date of the 2020 VW Touareg. We can expect it to enter the market somewhere in the second quarter of 2019 as it is meant to be a 2020 model. Release in early 2020 is possible but very unlikely.
The same goes for the price. There is no official statement yet. However, for the price, we can guesstimate it using the price of the previous model. The starting price of the previous model is in the $50,000 range. The starting price of the 2020 Touraeg should be in the same range. Expect a slight increase in the price.
These are what we know so far regarding the upcoming 2020 VW Touareg. In terms of major redesigns, they are unlikely to happen. The Touareg is a recent lineup. It made its debut back in 2017, which make it unlikely for the 2020 Touareg to get major redesigns.
The previous Touareg models have proven their capability, reliability, and ability to provide comfort. The upcoming Touareg should be able to do at least the same. It needs to do more than that, though. What do you think?
We would like to remind you that the 2020 VW Touareg is meant to be a 2020 model. As there is a gap between today and 2020, what we say here may or may not be true. What we present here is more of an expectation rather than facts as official information regarding the model is still lacking. The image we use is an illustration as there is no real image of the 2020 Touareg at the moment.
