  2019 VW Touareg Caught Completely Uncovered In New Spy Photos The German SUV appears to get a sharp makeover. Volkswagen’s new Touareg has been a long time coming. With a rumored debut date of early 2018, and promises of being more upscale and more advanced than the outgoing model, the German marque isn’t skimping out on its new SUV. While early prototype spy photos have given us an idea as to how it might look, cameras recently captured the new SUV in full while out on a commercial shoot.

VW sketched out a handling course with cones on its black lake.

The design was penned by a team lead by Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. Although it’s hard to tell from a line sketch, the company claims the new Touareg’s appearance is unmistakably strong in character, and it is chock full of driving aids for “a maximum degree of safety and comfort.”

We can’t vouch for the innovative assistance systems, as the company didn’t release much information with the sketch, but we can discern a 2-box design that looks almost identical to the current model, with visible changes such as low-profile headlights that wrap around to the fenders.

Body add-ons look to include a high-mounted rear spoiler and lower-body cladding (sills and wheel well flares).
