The Volkswagen Touareg may have larger dimensions than ever, yet you’ll be surprised at just how nimble and agile it is. It’s ten percent (or 200kg) lighter than the outgoing model, with an extended wheelbase (by 40mm), providing a sleek finish. All but the entry-level SE are finished with styling 19-inch alloy wheels – while range-topping R-Line and R-Line Plus gain super-stylish 20 and 21-inch alloys respectively.
Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride – whatever the terrain. Volkswagen has designed the five-seat cabin to keep wind noise to an absolute minimum, and the engine is also quiet when you’re cruising. Enjoy the peace and quiet from the comfort of your plush, leather seats. High-quality plastics and premium wood trims (on upgraded models) add an extra touch of sophistication. What’s more, thanks to the model’s increased size you can expect a wealth of legroom in the front and rear – plus an impressive 580 litres of boot space.
Power and Motion
Make your selection from two 3.0-litre engines, with 204bhp or 262bhp outputs. The less powerful unit hits 60mph from a standstill in just 8.5 seconds, with fuel economy coming in at 42.8mpg. Then there’s the more powerful engine, which is about one second speedier, while offering fuel economy of 40.9mpg.
Whichever model you go for, you can expect a robust and reliable performance across all kinds of terrain. Four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox are fitted as standard in the entry-level SE, so you know you’re ready for anything.
Safe and Sound
When it comes to safety, Volkswagen has gone the extra mile with the new Touareg. You’ll find six airbags, stability control and active front head restraints packed into this model. There’s also electronic stability control and an automatic post-collision braking system to keep you steady at all times.
Generous equipment levels feature across the board. All models come with satellite navigation for your convenience, plus handy parking sensors and DAB digital radio. Upgrade to R-Line or R-Line plus and you’ll enjoy keyless entry, an electrically operated boot lid and rear and side-view cameras to enhance your awareness.
