2020 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI

Feb 27, 2019

With the vast majority of the automotive world focusing on the impending takeover of electric vehicles, Volkswagen has decided to focus instead on a powerful new diesel upgrade for one of its trademark SUVs. The new VW Touareg V8 TDI might look like a mid-range offering on the outside — but inside, it’s a whole new beast.

Utilizing a new high-tech turbo-diesel engine that reaches the 900-newton meter-realm of the brand’s super sports cars, the new flagship vehicle will improve upon its V6 predecessor with a staggering 418 bhp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the vehicle’s surprising new output, it can launch from 0-62 in just under 4.9 seconds — faster than many of the industry’s current hot hatch offerings. Although it’s being touted as the “the most powerful SUV with a diesel engine from a German manufacturer,” the Touareg still falls short of Audi’s 429 horsepower SQ7 TDI, but makes up the difference with state-of-the-art driver assist and running gear systems such as night vision, traffic jam and lane assist, and a roll stabilization feature that puts driver safety at the forefront. The new Touareg V8 TDI is set to release in May 2019 in Europe.
