The refreshed VW Touareg is now available to order in Germany with prices starting from €52,125 ($69,855) for the base 3.0-liter TDI V6 model.
VW says the price increase is justified by additional standard features including bi-xenon headlights and the Multi Collision Brake system – V8 TDI and Hybrid models also get standard cornering lights and LED daytime running lights.
The exterior of the VW Touareg has been refreshed with new paint finishes and wheels, while the cabin features redesigned controls and lighting solutions, new decors and new colors for the leather upholstery. In Europe, VW’s biggest SUV is available with four engine options, three diesels and a gasoline hybrid.
Besides the base 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel with 201hp (204PS), VW also offers the new V6 turbodiesel with 258 hp (262PS), as well as a 4.2-liter V8 turbodiesel producing 335hp (340PS). The Touareg Hybrid combines a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine with an electric motor for a total output of 333PS (328hp).
VW also offers a “Terrain Tech” model in combination with the more powerful V6 TDI which features additional off-road features including a center differential with electrically controlled multi-plate lock, low range gearing and a lockable rear differential.
All diesel models are available with the “Touareg Exclusive” package that brings additional features including 20-inch Talladega alloy wheels, silver anodized roof railing, inlays in Olive Ash precious wood and door sills with “Touareg Exclusive” lettering.
Finally, the refreshed Touareg can be further personalized with two R-Line packages – one for the exterior featuring more aggressive bumpers, sill extensions and a gloss black diffuser, and one for the interior which brings a sportier appearance.
