New Volkswagen Touareg released
25th July, 2011
Volkswagen Group Australia has released the new Touareg. The 2011
model year version will only be with us for a short while. That's because the MY2012 is due later this year.
The Volkswagen Touareg is a large SUV that offers a high level of comfort, sporty driving properties, good
quality and even expedition capabilities.
While the new Touareg maintains all the virtues of space, comfort, refinement and off-road and towing ability
which made the original model so popular, Volkswagen takes the model forward thanks to the use of lightweight
construction techniques, more fuel-efficient engines and new technologies.
Clean styling draws inspiration from the design direction established by the Golf and new Polo – the new
Volkswagen design 'DNA'. Despite being lower and thus appearing sleeker, the new Touareg is larger than the
previous model. It is almost 50 millimetres longer in wheelbase, its overall length has increased by 144
millimetres, yet it weighs up to 90 kg less and is up to 20 per cent more fuel-efficient.
This efficiency is further epitomised by the standard fitment of a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
A choice of sophisticated new options is also available including an advanced Driver Assistance Package which
incorporates a range of features such as Lane Assist, Side Assist and ProActive Occupant Protection System.
All new Touaregs will feature BlueMotion Technologies including brake energy recuperation and Start/Stop
Standard equipment across the range – nine airbags, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Auto Hold and Hill Hold Assist,
ASR, EDL and ESP with active roll-over protection function, EBC and Off-road Function with Anti-lock Braking
System (ABSplus) and Hill Decent Assist. Entertainment and technology equipment fitted as standard includes
coloured Multi-function Display and Bluetooth® connectivity.
