It is more than just development. They are built on the same line. The since the TDI drivetrains (engine, trans, all driveline components) on both are identical (there is a slight programming difference), the design to support the TDI drivetrain is identical.

The Cayenne was initially released without a Diesel.

 

The Touareg got diesels, initially the 5.0L V10 TDI and the 2.5L R5 TDI.

 

later, when the 3.0L V6 TDI was introduced, it was shared between them.

 

But, the only other gasoline engine that was shared was the 3.2L VR6 and later 3.6L VR6.

 

but, yes, drivetrain, both have the Torsen center differential AWD system with the  Borg Warner transfer case.
