Volkswagen Touareg Is Redesigned

The redesigned Volkswagen Touareg has a new front and rear, new colours and wheels. All V6 TDI versions now come equipped with an automatic post-collision braking system, bi-xenon headlights and a coasting function which decouples the engine from the 8-speed automatic transmission to utilize the car's kinetic energy on mountain descents or in driving phases in which acceleration is not needed. An air suspension to increase the vehicle's ground clearance by up to nearly a foot in off-road driving is available as an option for the Touareg.

The all-wheel drive Touareg is available, depending on region, with a V6 and V8 TDI turbodiesel engine, V6 and V8 FSI gas engine, turbocharged V6 TSI gas engine or Hybrid V6 TSI & electric motor drive system. The V6 engines come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all engines have a stop - start system as standard. In late summer, Volkswagen will also be launching the R-Line.
