If we can rely on the latest reports, it looks like the 2021 Volkswagen Arteon is about to receive a mid-cycle refresh. This fastback came two years ago as a completely new model. It was originally designed for the Chinese market, but the company eventually decided to offer it around the world.
VW’s most popular model is about to come with some very interesting novelties for the next year if we can rely on the latest reports. A camouflaged testing mule has been spotted and it appears to be a completely new, hi-performance version, which is about to come as the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan R. It will come with a full load of upgrades, including a very powerful turbo-four engine. Other than a new performance version, we should see a mid-cycle update, according to some reports, although there is still no official confirmation. In any case, the new model is about to hit the market sometime in the second half of next year.
While North American drivers still look at VW as an economy brand, the fact is that this company had several very luxurious models in the offer, starting from amazing Phaeton and ending with Touareg. Therefore, this mid-size crossover never had some notable success on the market and that’s the main reason why the German manufacturer has decided to design a completely new vehicle of the U.S. market, called Atlas. On the other side, the Touareg has been discontinued and is now available only in other parts of the world, primarily on markets like Europe and Chine. Moreover, the new generation came recently, more luxurious than ever. Therefore, we doubt that the 2021 Volkswagen Touareg will feature more important changes. Expect to see it sometime late in the next year.
The development of VW’s first ever pickup truck took years, but the production lasts for much longer. In the segment that is becoming more and more competitive in all parts of the world, a decade-old truck like this one definitely needs a refreshment. No, we are not talking about a facelift, like one that happened two years ago. We are talking about a complete redesign. The current generation may have strong points but lags behind competitors in many aspects, especially when it comes to utility. Therefore, it’s not strange that more and more reports are suggesting a completely redesigned 2021 Volkswagen Amarok.
