VW Touareg Major Facelift Spy Photos

by Hans G. Lehmann

02-22-2006

The two joint venture off roaders, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg, are about to get a major facelift due for launch in 2007. Both cars came on the market for the first time in 2002.

While already numerous prototypes of the restyled Porsche Cayenne got caught on photo, the revamped future Touareg went unnoticed until now.

Here are first photos showing details of the upcoming Touareg facelift. The prototype was snapped during an overnight stop next to a hotel parking lot in Northern Scandinavia.

As can be seen from the photos, the Touareg gets new headlights and an altered front end as well as air intakes in the front skirt. The rear end has also different taillights, and – according to the shot of the dashboard - the car will also get an all new instrument panel and centre console. In the photo the engineers have put covers over the dashboard in conceal the new look.

Lose some weight for sure, and bring the diesel variations here. I see this Touareg has a V6 TDi. These would be a nice addition to an already nice vehicle. VW got the better end of the styling spectrum, where as the Cayenne fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

I don't like the facelift because of the gaping chrome maw. I like the currnet version better. Eh, styling changes, so I guess I just need to wait it out, like i need to wait out Chrysler's crazangles.

Now that I've looked at the headlamps again, it looks like a Hyundai!

Doesn't look like the "major" facelift we've been lead to believe it'll be.

I see new headlamps.
