  • Rationalised model line-up and options
  • Bi-Xenon headlights and satellite navigation standard across the range

Volkswagen Touareg arrives with a newly revised line-up.

The simplified range consists of the 150TDI, V6 TDI and V8 TDI R-Line model variants, all with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Standard features across the range include: Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive and RNS850 satellite navigation system.

A refreshed look for the Touareg has been achieved both inside and out. Redesigned exterior elements include new front and rear bumpers, fog lights, ventilation grilles, and alloy wheel designs. Interior changes include an updated design for system buttons and new white light interior illumination lighting.

Assistance and safety systems continue to be a part of the range, with Multi-collision brake now standard. Pioneered in the seventh generation Golf, Multi-collision brake is designed to trigger automatic controlled braking once an initial collision has been detected, to reduce the severity or even potentially avoid subsequent accidents. Other standard assistance and safety features include Driver Fatigue Detection, nine airbags, and Coasting Function to save fuel when the driver’s foot is taken off the accelerator pedal.
