Volkswagen is preparing a new Touareg SUV for European launch next spring, with U.S. sales months later as a 2011 model. Targets for the new model are better economy -- both through significantly more efficient powertrains and lighter overall weight -- plus the incorporation of a third row of child seats.

The design will reflect VW's new Walter da Silva-mandated approach; emphasis on horizontal lines and a nose characterized by a wide grill between oblong lamps. It will retain SUV-like cues too. The hood and body sides have fewer, crisper feature lines and a greater simplicity of surfacing, which should suit a sport-utility well.

I think this would be a great news for the company.

Careful with the VW Touareg...The dealer wants an insane amount of money for replacement wipers. Go with Trico Tech Beam Blades for much less - you can find them online. I'll never understand why auto manufacturers/dealers continue to make our blood boil with crazy gouging with maintenance?
