We’ve not yet seen all the new products set to debut at this year’s New York Auto Show, but several makers have already begun rolling out offerings set to debut next week as the Beijing Motor Show gets underway. Among those is Volkswagen AG, preparing to show off a facelifted version of its big Touareg sport-utility vehicle.
One might understand why VW is so anxious to get a jump on things considering it’s the Chinese market leader – but facing a tough battle with second-place rival General Motors. The updated SUV is just one of several previews it has scheduled for China’s capital.
The 2015 VW Touareg – which will later be rolled out in the U.S. and Europe, as well – undergoes some relatively modest updating to its interior and exterior, and gains some important new technology, as well.
Visually, the most obvious body changes are the new front and rear bumpers, new bi-xenon headlamps, and integrated rear fog lamps. The Touareg also gets new color and wheel options.
