2019 VW Touareg reborn as high-tech Audi rival

2019 VW Touareg reborn as high-tech Audi rival

Recently, all SUVs have been losing weight and the all-new 2019 Volkswagen Touareg is no different. Having slashed a significant 106 kilos and filled to the brim with the latest technology, the VW Touareg will join the lineup of MLB Evo platform-based SUVs that include the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and the Lamborghini Urus.


The construction of the 2019 Touareg uses aluminium and a special kind of steel that VW refers to as “high-tech steels.” Looks-wise, the 2019 Touareg’s front fascia flaunts the traits of the VW Arteon sedan, which is a very beautiful model to start with. The grille is connected seamlessly with both the LED Matrix headlamps that contain a whopping 128 LEDs each. At the rear, there are not a lot of significant updates. The Touareg moniker is now more prominent and has been moved to the centre of the tailgate. Even the base model comes with 18-inch alloys and the high-end model can be fitted with massive 21-inch units.

Inside the 2019 Touareg, there are a ton of features that have been introduced in this generation. To start with, the top-end model comes with a 12-inch instrument cluster as well as a massive 15-inch central touchscreen that replaces many physical buttons. Four-corner air suspension (with electronic damping control), four-wheel steering, massaging and ventilated front seats, four-zone air conditioning, a 14-speaker Dynaudio sound system, and a panoramic sliding roof are a few of the optional features offered with the Touareg.


Powering the 2019 Touareg is a pair of turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesels with 231 hp and 286 hp outputs. A V6 petrol engine with 340 hp will join the lineup eventually. Another diesel, this time a V8, will sit on the top of the range with 421 hp. To play the green game, a hybrid with 367 hp will hit the streets, but not clear when.

What do you think?



  1. Will Volkswagen 2019 come to Iran?

  2. Hi Fazeen, after reading some of the articles and getting information on Dubai VW website, I bought the touareg 2 weeks ago (highline plus) trim. My car does not have night vision and neither Dynaudio sound system. Is VW not offering this in Dubai. Feels like being ripped off.
