The current-generation Volkswagen Touareg was unveiled in 2010 and after only three years, the company is already preparing a mild refresh for the SUV. The first prototype was out testing in the heights of the European Alps, which peak at 15,774 feet in the west and 13,284 feet on the east, and as you can see, it’s wearing camouflage only at the front and the rear. This carefully placed camo means that just these parts will be updated.
We expect to see updated front and rear bumpers and a revised grille to help keep it up with the competition. Also, when launched in 2010, the Touareg offered a first in automotive headlight technology: the "glare-free high beam." This feature will be kept in the future, but it looks like the light graphic will change when the revised Touareg hits the market.
Engine lineup will also be updated to deliver more power and improved fuel consumption, while the interior will get updated infotainment systems.
