Next-generation Volkswagen Touareg

Facing a tough competition from BMW’s X5, Mercedes’ M-Class or Audi’s Q5, Volkswagen will introduce a new generation of the VW Touareg SUV, which is scheduled to go on sale in 2010. As we can see from these renderings presented by AutoExpress, the suv will have a more aggressive design, influenced by the current smaller Tiguan. We can see a new front part, with wraparound headlamps, a large grille and a big bumper while the rear has a distinctive kink in the C-pillar and a split tailgate which will allow owners to open the glass independently.

The new Volkswagen Touareg will be powered by a 276bhp 3.2 liter V6 petrol engine, while the top version will get a 345bhp 4.2 liter V8. There will also be diesel versions, two V6 TDI units, with 2.7 liters and 3.0 liters. These engines will be mated with a six-speed Tiptronic gearbox. Rumors also say that somewhere around 2012 Volkswagen will offer a hybrid version, which combines a powerful electric motor with the 3.2 liter V6 petrol engine.

    again a SUV in U-BOOT design.
    Reduced window surfaces and strongly streched wind sreen. Excacly what is not needed for a car ment to be used for visiting beautiful country sides.
    This car would need in oposition highly increased window surfaces, and straighter up windscreen (avoiding interior upheating)

    Why is this happening to SUVs??? This is the ugliest vehicle that I have ever seen, and the new Porsche Cayenne is no better. I can’t believe this because the current Volkswagen Touareg is my absolute FAVORITE SUV on the road today, and the current Porsche Cayenne is BEAUTIFUL as well. This is so sad. I hope that nobody buys this car so that VW brings back the Touareg in production today, or something like it. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE RUGGED SUVs WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE??????????
