Good stuff. Another reason the 2016s are getting discounted.

This reminds just before the T3 came out...the teaser pics were not the final rendition. Sorta close but nothing like the production model.

Interesting, I love the idea of a third row option and I love the roof profile better. Something that has always bothered me is I can't sit on the back floor with the hatch open. I actually need a larger vehicle so this is perfect for me as I think the Q7 just looks ugly.
I just hope they don't make four wheel drive optional (as in a front wheel drive as being standard). It doesn't say this but...

Maybe 3rd row is optional. If so, it's likely tiny.

If the third "row" is like the Q7's third "row", it's a bit of a gimmick to make you think you can seat 7. Unless your sixth and seventh passengers are pre-schoolers.

Good link. Does look like click-bait but the Touareg there looks good.

That works just fine for my growing brood. I actually want/need a three car seat center row and more storage in the boot. As the eldest grows, she can move to the back split seat and I'll throw a box on the roof.

Still want/need the diesel for towing. And I want our highway runs to be +40mpg (for no other reason than just that it can ;)) and up until diesel-gate I've been proud of the low emissions footprint. Got to believe a diesel /electric would have a great emissions footprint.

I like the looks, even if its in that '60-70s CrossBlue baby blue. Not a fan ;)

Any 2wd version would be RWD for Touareg as it's a longitudinal engine, not transverse like the Tiguan.

Without a major increase in wheelbase the Touareg just isn't big enough for 3 rows full-size - but European 7-seaters aren't that big anyway - it's much more a 5+2 arrangement.
