The next-generation Volkswagen Touareg has been teased again this week, in a new set of images and a video showcasing the nameplate’s 15-year history.

Set to be revealed on March 23 in Beijing, China, the new Touareg will be the first major overhaul of the German SUV in nearly a decade.

Not much has been disclosed about the new-generation model, but the third iteration of Volkswagen’s SUV flagship will be based on the company’s MLB architecture – which already underpins the new Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne – and feature the latest driver assistance and infotainment systems, something the current car is lacking.

While still camouflaged in these images, the Touareg’s design has already been previewed by the T-Prime GTE concept, and seen on an uncamouflaged prototype last year.

In February the company confirmed the new SUV will get the option of four-wheel steering, air suspension and roll stabilisation, and one of “the largest digital cockpits in its class”.

According to overseas reports, the Touareg will also debut a massive infotainment display measuring about 15 inches.

In terms of powertrains, we’re expecting revised versions of the current turbocharged six- and eight-cylinder engines to feature, depending on the market. We could also see four-cylinder and plug-in hybrid options too – though the latter is ruled out for our market.
