According to the spy shots, both the rear and front fascias are covered. This is why we cannot say much about the detailing since those are the parts where the most important details can be found. Even so, it doesn’t mean that the spy shots cannot show much; the proportions, for instance, are seemingly still the same or at least similar to the current ones. This is pretty surprising that vehicles are typically growing in size as they move into the new generation.

And considering the hidden details, especially in terms of styling, we cannot spot anything concealed behind that thick camo. However, from our 2018 Volkswagen Touareg review, we expect that the new model year is mostly cued from the new T-Prime Concept the German automaker company has shown at the last year’s Beijing Motor Show. Thus, anticipate the presence of larger front grille and think headlamps, sporty bumper, and C-shaped LED daytime running lights. Meanwhile, the rear fascia will feature the slender taillights placed high, generous use of chrome on the plate and bumper, and a huge recess found on the tailgate’s lower section.

Meanwhile, for the packaging, the new MLB platform will play a great role in determining it. Even though the roofline gets lower, the headroom will remain at least as spacious as before, thanks to the seating position that gets lower. Expect to feel enhancement in shoulder room and legroom, especially for the rear seat. And without a doubt, we can also expect at least an increasing in the trunk area.
