Initially, it was unclear whether the new Volkswagen Touareg would be revealed in 2017 or 2018, but our sources have spotted the vehicle undergoing testing without much of the camouflage that has adorned test units up to now. This implies a reveal could be sooner than expected.
The Touareg shares the same VW Group MLB Evo platform as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga and next-generation Porsche Cayenne.
It is also likely to feature a similar and more muscular wheel arch to that on the Bentayga as well as a slightly more sloping rear roofline. – Mark Smyth
