Looking at 2018 Volkswagen Touareg and some similar models which Volkswagen will launch next year, we can say that there will be no rest for this manufacturer in the future. According to the Los Angeles Car Show in 2016 when the new Atlas has been shown and Detroit in 2017 when the Volkswagen shown redesigned Tiguan, the factory is prepared to win the market of SUVs in America and the rest of the world. Touareg is simply in the middle of it, also redesigned and improved, but with many details which manufacturer already has tested on those two models. But, let’s be honest and say, that fans will have what to see and drive in years to come.
Although outside of 2018 Volkswagen Touareg recalls on new Atlas, according to spy photos and very small piece of the protection which covers the front and rear end of the car, Touareg is shorter and surely not seven seat car as Atlas is. Atlas has a recognizable line below the door handles, while on Touareg is above them. Being lighter but bigger than the last model, it will be easy for controlling on the road, with the petrol savings, which is important for the drivers in the future. It is also expected to see many details in the front and the rear end of the car, with modern LED lights and possibly additions like decorations. They are not visible for now due to the protection that covers the car on test driving. Volkswagen group has covered the platforms for many car models, so many of them share it even with the competition. Same things happened with the Touareg which will share the platform with the Audi Q5 and Q7 or Bentley Bentayga, but also with Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini SUV. The mentioned platform has been seen on 2016 Beijing Car Show.
As we mentioned, 2018 Volkswagen Touareg is a wider car, so we expect more space in the cabin for the driver, but also a comfort on back seats. Knowing that Volkswagen will never leave the car without high technology, we can announce some of the driver’s helper systems or semi-autonomous technology. Other things have still not seen publicly.
It is possible to see 4-inline engine option, with V6 as better version and optional hybrid plug-in engine version. Those are engines models, embedded in previous models, so that is expected to be in 2018 Volkswagen Touareg, too, as well as the same eight-speed automatic transmission.

As many things about the 2018 Volkswagen Touareg, the price and releasing date are not clearly known for now, but we can announce the meeting with this model on next 2017 Geneva Auto Show when the Volkswagen will also represent two smaller SUVs to the buyers.
