The all-new 2019 VW Touareg SUV opens a new chapter for Volkswagen, looking to the future with style, technology and safety features.
Since its first launch almost a decade ago in 2008, the Volkswagen Touareg hasn’t been changed much. It has proved itself to be well-rounded 5 seater SUV but the driving experience and design language remained similar through out the years. Well, all that is set to change, and for the better.
VW has made substantial upgrades to the 2019 Touareg launched just last month. It is bigger, better and more agile and has the style and technology from the future. It is here to compete head to head and claim the market share from other luxury SUVs like BMW X5, Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
