VAG SSP 575 – The Touareg 2019 Body and Safety Features: Innovative Use of Materials. The Touareg 2019 is the first Volkswagen vehicle to use not just cold-formed and hot-formed steel but also sheet metal, extruded profiles, and pressure die-cast parts manufactured from aluminum in the body structure. This innovative use of materials in the body assembly results in a stronger and more lightweight structure.
Using aluminum as a material in the body structure is new for Volkswagen, demonstrating their commitment to innovation and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in vehicle design.
