The Touareg is differentiated by an aggressive-yet-elegant refreshed exterior. Sporting a crisp, sleek and aerodynamic look that is firmly set in Volkswagen DNA, it has an instantly recognizable family theme.
Overall dimensions stay the same at 188.8 inches in length, 76.4 inches wide and 68.2 inches high (68.4 for the Hybrid). Key design elements include an all-new 4-bar chrome grille that connects seamlessly to the redesigned headlights, which themselves sit flush with the grille’s base. Standard on all models, these headlight clusters feature Bi-Xenon high intensity gas-discharge headlights, the Adaptive Front-lighting System, and an updated LED Daytime Running Light design.
The new horizontal theme continues throughout the Touareg’s redesigned front end. A new lower valance incorporates redesigned foglights, and an updated bumper is easily distinguishable by the “A” shape of the connecting pillars, which now lean inward rather than outward.
Moving to the back, LED taillights are now standard on all Touareg models. These units flank a modified tailgate design with an elegantly sharpened “Tornado Line” running across the entire width. The rear bumper features chrome accents that now wrap around the Touareg entirely; the lower spoiler features blacked-out trim. Signature triangular exhaust tips round out the overall look.
