Volkswagen Presents the New Touareg​​

Volkswagen have upgraded the third generation of Touareg with extensive improvements: the suspension as well as the display and operating concept of the full-size SUV have been revised, and the front and rear design have been sharpened. Particularly striking features are the newly developed HD matrix headlights at the front and the LED taillights, which are realised as a light strip.

Kai Grünitz, Member of the Volkswagen Board of Management for Development: “The Touareg has always been a technology pioneer for us, allowing us to transfer new developments into other brand models as part of a top-down strategy. And we are following the same approach with the new Touareg. It is the first Volkswagen model to be launched with the newly developed HD matrix headlights – one of the best lighting systems in the world. More than 38,000 interactive LEDs project a light carpet exactly onto the driving lane and illuminate the road more precisely than ever before. We will soon transfer this HD matrix lighting system to next smaller SUV-class models.”

Sharpened design: The new front and rear design makes the premium Touareg model instantly recognisable. At the front, the unit formed by the radiator grille, headlights, and the front apron have been given a new look whilst the rear is also sharper with a continuous horizontal LED strip for the taillight clusters and incorporates an illuminated VW logo.

All-in-one – maximum travel comfort & optimum performance: The suspension has been enhanced on the Touareg and is now equipped as standard with a new roof load sensor that is closely integrated with the suspension electronics. Depending on the version, the Touareg is available with innovative suspension technologies such as active roll compensation (adaptive running gear) and all-wheel steering which further improves the driving dynamics of the premium SUV.

Updated interior: The new Innovision Cockpit is included which consists of the Digital Cockpit and the high-end infotainment system Discover Pro Max with functions such as lane-level navigation and the HD map data being optimised for the new model. USB-C connections now offer a higher charging capacity for devices and by evaluating customer feedback, the high-quality level of the Touareg interior has been further improved. For example, the centre console trims are now softer than before, providing extra comfort.

Wide choice of powertrains – as petrol, diesel, or plug-in hybrid: The new Touareg will be launched in five powertrain versions. In addition to a turbocharged petrol engine, there is a choice of two turbodiesel engines and two plug-in hybrids. All highly efficient engines are paired as standard with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and the 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive.
