2024 VW Touareg Previewed

The 3rd generation of Volkswagen’s most popular SUV has been in production since 2018, and it seems that it’s due for an upgrade. The German automaker is planning an overhaul of the most expensive model, and the test version is already being spotted. Even though it’s still hiding the modifications but we can see that the update will be mostly focused on aesthetics. The two sides of the 2024’s VW Touareg receive new styling elements.

However, the details of the interior aren’t yet clear, but there is a chance of seeing a few interior upgrades or at the very least in terms of new features and colors. In terms of powertrain, the majority of things will be the same as they are, however, there’s a possibility that a variety of models will be upgraded by introducing a mild hybrid configuration. This is especially true for simpler diesel and gasoline models.

We’ve already mentioned that the German manufacturer is working on a mid-cycle refresh of their current third generation. The test mule was discovered in snow and has a few camouflaged areas that clearly outline the areas where we should anticipate changes. On the front, we see pieces of the cover that are reminiscent of the design of the model that was previously in production which is all to deceive viewers. We can therefore assume this 2024 VW Touareg will come with new headlights, along with improvements to the areas around it.

The rear part also comes with a hint of camouflage. The taillights are covered with traditional camouflage, and there’s no doubt that the upgraded models will feature the latest versions. In addition, we can also anticipate regular mid-cycle changes including different colors, brand-new wheels, and similar features.

For the mechanics, we’re not likely to see significant modifications. The suspension and chassis setup will remain the same. That is perfect given the fact that the model currently offers an impressive experience for driving. Air suspension is available as the standard equipment, and provides an excellent balance of comfort and athleticism like that of the Audi Q7 does.

Interior

The mid-cycle refresh that is coming shortly could include some new features on the interior, too. The details aren’t available yet, however, we believe that small changes could be made to the dashboard, the center console, and so on. Although we haven’t seen any modifications to the design, we might anticipate new colors, along with some new materials. However, most features will remain similar to this model. It is distinguished by a minimalist but stylish design that is complemented by a significant part of the latest tech features.

The 2024 Volkswagen Touareg is expected to remain a large SUV, which means the passenger space is going to be ample. There are two extremely comfortable and spacious rows of seats, together with the option of a third row, which could be smaller but still provide an adequate level of comfort. The cargo space is adequate too. The base models come featuring leather seats, power-adjustable seating with heated steering wheels and seats, etc.

According to some sources, the 15-inch screen that is currently available could also be added to an equipment standard. Parking sensors might also be included in the regular equipment to be used in conjunction with features like automatic emergency brakes along with lane-keeping aid, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition.

Engines

Upgrades under the hood could be possible however, they’re not huge ones. It is likely that the current engines will be slightly electrified and will have a slight hybrid setup of 48 volts. It is likely to include all models and offers slightly higher efficiency in terms of fuel consumption. The current lineup begins with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which produces 250 horsepower. Of course, there’s another good-old 3.0-liter V6 engine that puts out 350 horsepower.

 In many places, it is also equipped using a diesel engine featuring a dependable 3.0-liter V6 engine that comes with towing power outputs that are 228 or 282 horsepower. There is also a super-capable plug-in hybrid variant built on the 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 450 horsepower with 700 Nm torque. All models come with an eight-speed auto transmission.

2024 VW Touareg Release Date

Even with the new features, however, we aren’t convinced that it will be a 2024 VW Touareg that will arrive much sooner than normal. The car is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of the calendar year.
