The competition on the automotive industry is always harder than ever, and that is why it is important for big automakers to not create a cheap project to offer. Finding this fact, 2018 VW Touareg will be released with a complete facelift. The company mentioned that the development of this new generation will complete the demand of SUVs. This official confirmation is followed with the issue about the test drive for this car that has been seen many times by spy photographers. It was covered with heavy camouflage and the company explained the reason for the similar body and other elements to Audi Q7.

2018 VW Touareg Front Angle


You might hear about the issue that the bodywork and the details of this car are a bit identical to Audi Q7. It happens because Volkswagen cooperated with Audi. As a result, the bodywork is supported with lightweight materials especially for its body panels with the use of flexible MLB platform so that the size of 2018 Touareg is bigger with the support of seven seats inside. Besides, Volkswagen needs to make the wheelbase a bit shorter to make the platform can fit on this car.


If the bodywork is under the cooperation with Audi, the interior will be the concern for Volkswagen to give what they have. It is designed from VW Blue Cross Concept. This concept shows a green light that the new 2018 VW Touareg might go to mass production. This edition will be a new SUV with three rows of seats.


For the engine side, it is possible for this car to get four-cylinder unit. Even some unofficial sites believe that there will be two engines which are turbo diesel for 300 hp and V6 petrol engine for 330 hp. It might be released with new 10-speed auto transmission but everything about this detail has not been confirmed by Volkswagen. If you have a big curiosity for the presence of hybrid model, it is almost known. The hybrid unit will be borrowed from Audi Q7 e-tron model that can be TDI 3.0 liter engine and 94 kW of electric motor supported with li-ion battery as well as Quattro drive and eight-speed tiptronic transmission to provide 373 hp. The consumption is about 1.7 liters per 100 km for 2018 VW Touareg.
