Volkswagen Touareg, one of the best German SUVs whose new generation was introduced with 2015th version is expected to be delivered with no changes for the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg model. This vehicle is still fresh and there are no needs for any major changes to keep it fresh and interesting.
The fact that this vehicle is present on the market for a long time, and it is still one of the most wanted vehicles among its class suggests that this vehicle really is an outstanding and a reliable machine. The new model offers the best in terms of engines, design, and technological improvements as well. Let’s see what has been changed on Volkswagen’s Touareg with introduction of new generation.
The widest varieties of engines are expected to arrive with the new version, just like it was the case with 2015th model. The base engine for the newcomer will be a 3.6-liter V6. This engine configuration is quite common in mid-size crossovers, so the company decided for this drivetrain to be available in the base model. With this powerplant, you will be able to get the maximum output of 280 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. A diesel variant will also be available and the 3.0-liter TDI V6 you will be able to get the maximum output of 240 horsepower and 407 lb-ft of torque. It is important to mention that the 3.0-liter engine ensures excellent fuel economy.
In case you do not prefer diesel engines, but you do want a fuel-efficient vehicle, don’t worry because Volkswagen prepared something for you as well. For those drivers best option is a hybrid model. Yes, the new 2016 Volkswagen Touareg can also be powered by a hybrid engine. It is a 3.0-liter V6 drivetrain and an electric motor duo that power the hybrid version. This powertrain option generates up to 380 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque which returns amazing performances indeed.
We are not surprised by the fact that the new Touareg boasts an excellent design, because it represents one of the most expensive and most luxurious vehicles that can be found around. The newcomer arrives fully wrapped in top-notch materials filled with the latest technology features. Even the base model arrives with heated front seats that are by the way wrapped in leather. Higher trim levels get Vienna leather upholstery. Oval dashboard remains the same, while an amazing 8-inch touchscreen makes the cabin even more appealing.
As for the exterior, there won’t be significant changes and the new model will look much alike the vehicle it replaces. The front fascia in this case is defined by a revised bumper with lower air intake and a refined four-stripe grille. The rear of the vehicle now sports two exhaust pipes and an extended roof spoiler. The exhaust pipes are integrated into the rear bumper. The overall exterior look of the newcomer is basically a German-like design. You will get refined yet aggressive looks with nice lines and shape.
2016 Volkswagen Touareg Price
The vehicle will finally be unveiled late in 2015 or at the beginning of 2016. It is expected to go on sale probably in the summer of 2016. An estimated price for the petrol powered version is expected to be less than $45,000 while the price for diesel engine equipped version will start at almost $57,000. The hybrid version of 2016 Volkswagen Touareg will cost around $65,000 and we can agree that both diesel and hybrid versions are far too expensive when compared to standard model. Have in mind that both diesel and hybrid will bring more generous standard equipment and that is the part of the price increase.
