Within just four years about 300,000 car drivers worldwide have chosen to drive a Touareg. Right out of the gate, the Touareg has advanced to become one of the most successful luxury SUVs ever. On countless expeditions the automotive globetrotter has circled the world, setting numerous records along the way.
Every detail in the Touareg reveals a devotion to high-grade materials, top-quality workmanship and refined elegance. From the heated leather multifunction steering wheel, to the chrome-edged dash, to the stainless steel loading sill guard. The Touareg offers sheer luxury.
The Touareg's ABSplus system, developed and patented by Volkswagen, is a world first. It detects loose surfaces such as sand or gravel and shortens the braking distance by up to 20% by means of controlled locking of the brakes.
Unique features like the Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP), the Eletronic Differential Lock (EDL) and Traction Control System (TCS) provide the most comfortable and smooth off-road drive.
The Touareg has had a facelift, and that is easy to see from the chrome-look, shield-shaped radiator grille that is typical of Volkswagen. The redesign also includes the now more organically shaped headlight housings - with the option of bi-xenon headlights with cornering light. The Touareg has new door mirrors and an optimised roof spoiler to improve its aerodynamics.
The "Climatronic" climate control module monitors the quality of the air inside the vehicle by means of an air quality sensor. When you enter a tunnel it automatically switches to recirculated air mode. In the Touareg, the "Climatronic" air conditioning system, featuring 4-zone temperature control, is included as standard. Air quantity and air distribution can be adjusted individually for all four seats.
Touareg is equipped with a self-leveling air suspension with ride height adjustment and continuous, speed-dependent electronic damping control gives the Touareg unique on and off-road qualities. For example, it raises the ground clearance of the vehicle up to as much as 300 millimetres in order to clear extreme unevenness. The body can be lowered by as much as 140 millimetres for ease of loading and unloading.
The available alloys are 8 J x 18 "Valley" alloy wheel, with size 255 tyre and 9 J x 19 "Terra" alloy wheel, with size 275 tyre. The upholstery is available in 2 leather trims - Cricket and Napa, with different colour options - Anthracite, Crystal Grey, Sioux, Latte Macchiato and Pure Beige.
The Touareg is the ideal vehicle for any road. And for the rest of the world, too. With the comfort, handling and precision of a luxury-class saloon. The vehicle reaches 0 to 100 km/h in just 9.3 seconds and a top speed of up to 202 km/h - the smooth 6-cylinder turbo diesel developing 165 kW (225 hp) and a maximum torque of 500 Nm provides great pulling power combined with impressive fuel economy. (Fuel consumption: 10.5 kms/ltr)
The 6-speed automatic transmission featuring the Dynamic Shift Program (DSP) learns its driver's gear-shifting habits and adapts itself accordingly. How sporty or comfortable the ride is decided by you alone.
On road or off road, the Touareg will prove outstanding with it's unique features and riding comfort. By all means the vehicle is a power-packed SUV with incomparable luxury and performance.
