New design and new technologies for the luxurious VW Touareg

 Volkswagen has given the Touareg a significantly sharper look and enhanced it technically in all areas. Features of the new Touareg generation include a redesigned front and rear, new driver assistance systems such as Automatic Post-Collision Braking System as standard and an improved layout of the suspension.

The latest Touareg is identifiable visually by its redesigned front and rear. Striking features at the front are the bi-xenon headlights and new grille. At the back new rear lights are used. The range of colours has been updated to new: ‘Reef Blue Metallic’, ‘Sand Gold Metallic’, ‘Black Oak Brown Metallic’ and ‘Moonlight Blue Pearl Effect’; the designers have also given a new look to the alloy wheels.

The interior also has new features. Redesigned interior features include the aluminium switches typical of the Touareg. They now look as though they have been milled from a solid block of metal. All buttons and switches now being illuminated in white (instead of red as before) gives the interior ambience an additionally refined feel. The range of interior colours and styles of leather have also been extended.

New on the Touareg V6 TDI is the gearbox’s coasting function. While the vehicle is coasting, the standard 8-speed automatic transmission is disengaged in order to utilize the kinetic energy during periods where no acceleration is required, and thus to improve efficiency still further. Aerodynamic refinements to the vehicle body and underbody, plus the introduction of new tyres optimized for low roll resistance, also have a positive effect on fuel consumption.

The Touareg has a standard permanent four-wheel drive system (4MOTION; 31-degree uphill capability) and a steel-spring suspension; the running gear has been extensively upgraded. Customers can choose from petrol or diesel power: the V6 FSI engine produces 280 PS and 360 Nm of torque, while the V6 TDI unit has 245 PS and 550 Nm of torque. Both are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The four-wheel drive system has a self-locking Torsen transfer case and electronic differential locks (EDS) at all four wheels. It is also equipped as standard with an 'Off-road Driving Programme', which attunes the ABS, EDS and ASR to off-road use, activates Hill Descent Assist and adapts the shift points of the automatic gearbox.
