Facelifted VW Touareg spied image

A facelifted version of the Volkswagen Touareg has been recently spied testing on a mountain road, wearing some light camouflage on its body.

The German based automaker Volkswagen is currently working on an updated version of the Touareg, even if one of its main competitors, BMW, has developed a new generation of the X5. The model in question is currently being tested by the carmaker and the most recent video with the SUV is coming from the Alps. The camouflaged front and rear fascias are suggesting that this is a facelift of the model and not a new generation, so the classic upgrades are expected to be adopted.

Changes will include the new front and rear bumpers, the redesigned headlights, the tweaked taillights, a variety of new driver assistance systems and an updated infotainment system, amongst others. As for the engine lineup, rumors are saying that this will include a new four-cylinder unit which will replace the popular 3.0 liter V6 TDI, but this engine might also be carried over with more power, 15 HP to be more precise, to a total of 260 HP (194 kW). Additional details on the facelifted version of the VW Touareg are limited for the moment and will probably be announced next year, once the model is expected to go on sale.
