VW and Porsche are preparing the next generation of their very similar full size SUVs, the Touareg and the Cayenne. Both cars will get a new look which will be much leaner and curvy than the current model’s box shape styling, and both car will hit the markets in 2011. Here you see the first spy pictures of the VW Touareg.
Some say the new Touareg will be as much as 300KG lighter than the outgoing model and will have better off road capabilities as well. VW will also offer Touareg with the third row of seats as a seven seater car. As for the engines, 2011 Touareg will get the fully enhanced 3.6 liter V6 and 4.2 liter V8, with the V10 diesel coming later on. It’ll also get the same hybrid power train as the Porsche Cayenne hybrid which consists of a supercharged 3.0 liter V6 and an electric motor.
