Spied: 2014 Volkswagen Touareg

With the refreshed 2014 Volkswagen Touareg arriving this fall, you can bet engineers are out putting the finishing touches on the SUV. A prototype of that upcoming VW was recently spotted, performing high-altitude tests in the Alps.

Since the next-gen Touareg is slated for 2016, it doesn’t appear this Touareg is much different from the current model. The black camouflage conceals what looks to be a refreshed front fascia, complete with a revised grille and slimmer headlights. The same story applies to the prototype’s rear end, which keeps the same shape, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see revised taillights once the new ‘ute is unveiled. Although we can’t see inside, we expect the Touareg to boast an updated interior and infotainment system. There’s also a possibility of updated engines and equipment, which wouldn’t be such a bad idea considering the Touareg currently can’t be equipped with an air suspension in the U.S. — a feature that might’ve helped it in a recent comparison test.
 The Touareg TDI came in dead last in our five-way diesel SUV comparo. An update could help step up the SUV’s game until the next-gen Touareg arrives in a couple years. The new Touareg will share its gene pool with the next Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, the forthcoming Lamborghini Urus, and the production version of the Bentley EXP 9 F Concept. Currently, the Touareg and Q7 share the same basic underpinnings, but the Q7 rides on a stretched platform.
