Our sources have given us more details on the next generation Volkswagen Touareg, which looks likely to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The new model is going to be larger than the outgoing model but it will be significantly lighter, mainly through the use of the aluminium-intensive MLB Evo platform that also underpins the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga and will also be the platform for the next generation Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus.
The exterior design will adopt the latest cues we have seen in the Tiguan, while the rear will get haunches similar to those on the Bentayga.
The engine line-up is likely to remain similar to the current generation but expect to see hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. There is also the possibility of a fully electric version later on. – BD Motor News
