The 2023 Volkswagen Touareg will introduce further upgrades. The redesign is still not on the cards, but this impressive SUV will gain some sort of mid-cycle refresh. Touareg is a very upright model, in line with luxury SUVs from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes. The current generation is here since three years ago.
Now, the manufacturer will provide a couple of improvements. According to the latest reports, Touareg will gain various cosmetic upgrades and minor interior updates. Nothing will change under the hood and the sales will begin later in 2022.
Volkswagen Touareg Design
The most noticeable modifications in the 2023 VW Touareg design will be in terms of looks. This SUV will introduce a mid-cycle refresh, so redesign will not happen yet. Like most of the mid-cycle updates, this one will emphasize visual appeal in order to make the car more appealing. These adjustments, however, will be minor. Simply put, this manufacturer doesn’t make major adjustments during the production cycle, and to be honest, this SUV doesn’t require them.
It still appears to be new and appealing. As a result, we anticipate only minimal changes to the grille, bumpers, and other places. Of course, new color options and wheels are also on the way. In terms of mechanics, the Touareg model will continue to ride on the famous MLB platform, so mechanical changes are also unlikely.
If you like the exterior design, the interior of the 2023 Volkswagen Touareg will impress you even more. And while VW is known for building upright cabins, Touareg is on a whole new level. It has a lot of high-end materials, plus it has a lot of high-tech and convenient features. All of this makes Touareg appear as posh as its biggest rivals.
As a result, we are confident that the next Touareg will be mostly unchanged. The overall layout will remain the same, although different color schemes and materials are always possible. Still, this isn’t a bad thing, as this SUV will provide a high level of comfort and a lot of standard features.
Four Engine Options
As we said, the new 2023 Volkswagen Touareg will remain mechanically the same. This means no new engines will be on offer. On the other hand, Touareg provides up to four powertrain options. Everything starts with a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel producing 230 horsepower. The same engine is also available in a 286-hp version.
There is also a 3.0-liter V6 TSI gasoline engine with 340 horsepower and outstanding performance. Finally, the R model includes a plug-in hybrid powertrain. This configuration similarly used a V6 petrol engine in conjunction with a single electric motor, for a total output of 462 horsepower. The hybrid has a 14.1-kWh battery pack that provides 30 miles of all-electric range.
2023 Volkswagen Touareg Release Date, Price
The price of the forthcoming 2023 Volkswagen Touareg will be ranged from $64,000 to $136,000, depending on the chosen trim level. Volkswagen will launch its new SUV in the second half of 2022, which means Touareg is less than a year away.
