Spy Shots: Volkswagen Touareg Tests In The Icy Cold

Our spy shooter delivered these photos of the Volkswagen Touareg testing in below-zero temperatures. It looks like its ready for its debut at the North American International Auto Show, no matter how cold it gets in Detroit.

We think it will be lighter than the current Touareg, and it might get a third row of seats. Perhaps we’ll even see a hybrid version in the future.

Here some last minute photos from Volkswagen, they are still testing their new Touareg in -20 C just before Christmas. Could it be they are making the last changes in testing so Santa Claus can use the car for his around the world trip the 24th? Well, rumors says it will be making its public debut in Detroit in January. With or without Santa.
