Next-generation Volkswagen Touareg seen in scale model images

What you’re looking at here are images that show scale models of the new Volkswagen Touareg that will debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March. As you can see from the pictures, the next-generation Touareg takes design cues from the new Golf, Polo and the Scirocco.

The new Volkswagen Touareg will be based on the Porsche Cayenne platform and will be significantly lighter as V-dub looks to increase fuel-efficiency of SUVs for everyday use.

Insiders say that a third-row could be offered as an option to stay competitive with other rivals in the segment. The move will sit the next Volkswagen Touareg on a slightly longer wheelbase.

Powertrain choices are said to include the current 3.6L V6 and 4.8L V8 units. Two revised turbodiesels are also in the works along with a hybrid version mated to a 3.0L V6.
