Choosing a Volkswagen Touareg


Choosing a Volkswagen Touareg can be a tough decision, but there are many different options to consider. You can choose from a variety of different engines, all-wheel drive, and seating configurations. There are also several different options for body lean, steering precision, and seating position.

Engine options

Initially, there were four engines available. Two were diesel and two were patrols. The diesel produced 234 horsepower and the patrols produced 374 horsepower. During the first redesign, the Touareg was re-engineered to have better handling and improved fuel efficiency.

The diesel V6 is now replaced by a 280-horsepower petrol V6. The engine uses an eight-speed automatic transmission, but there is a manual option. Those interested in a hybrid can get the V6 TSI Hybrid. The engine uses a 2,995 cc V6 petrol engine with a Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger. The twin vortices allow the engine to be boosted, delivering 440 Nm (325 left) of torque at 3,000 rpm.

The Touareg is built on Volkswagen’s MLB platform, shared with Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7. The Touareg offers three trim levels, with the base model being able to go for as little as $2,000. Higher trims cost several thousand dollars more. The higher trims feature an eight-inch touchscreen, a 360-degree camera system, a Dynaudio premium audio system, and a hands-free power liftgate. The base model also has an eight-way power driver seat, HID headlights with LED accents, and a rearview camera.

Seating position

Despite its size, the Volkswagen Touareg offers a lot of space for five passengers. It has enough headroom for a six-footer to sit in the front. In the rear, three adults can comfortably sit side-by-side. The Touareg also has a large boot. It can hold up to fifteen shopping bags or twin prams.

The VW Touareg comes with a five-star ANCAP safety rating. The Touareg’s features include side chest-protecting airbags for the first-row outboard seating positions. The Touareg also offers a sound-deadening acoustics package.

The Touareg also has two cupholders. The center console is deep. It features a lidded storage tray at the base. The Touareg also has snazzy door bins. There is also room under the front center armrest.

The Touareg also comes with a seven-inch widescreen display. There is also an Innovision Cockpit, which is the nerve center of the interior. It is a touchscreen system that combines all of the interior systems.

Steering precision

Whether you’re driving on the highway or in the city, the steering precision of the VW Touareg is smooth and confident. Its nimble handling and light body weight allows you to maneuver in tight spaces without losing your composure.

The Touareg comes with a standard touchscreen interface, which features a large screen that’s easy to use. The touchscreen controls most VW features, including the audio system, blind-spot monitor, and air suspension. However, Touareg’s proprietary media player interface plug isn’t as versatile as a standard USB port.

Volkswagen is proud of the Touareg’s improved dynamic composure. Its four-wheel drive system has been redesigned to better match the SUV’s performance. The new steel suspension system is 43kg lighter than the previous model. This allows the vehicle to ride more comfortably.

Body lean

Compared to the previous model, the new Touareg is wider, longer, and a lot sleeker. It also offers more space inside and improved emissions. This makes the new Touareg a highly desirable premium SUV.

It’s got an elegant overall design. The grille is bolder and more angular. It also has a more luxurious interior. It’s much more upmarket than the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Mercedes ML300 CDI.

Compared to the previous model, the Touareg is lighter. It’s a little lower and sits about 12mm closer to the ground. The curb weight is also lighter, making the Touareg feel smaller and more agile.

Its steering is precise. The steering wheel has plenty of reach and height adjustment. It’s also got an electronically controlled anti-roll bar. It helps the Touareg keep its head up through corners.

All-wheel drive

Whether you’re on the road or off, the all-wheel drive VW Touareg can handle any situation with ease. In addition to excellent off-road performance, the SUV offers a host of driver assistance systems to ensure your safety.

For example, the MK 25 ABS/ESP system has a braking assistant that keeps the Touareg from skidding. The system is also capable of bringing the vehicle to a stop in any situation. It uses radar sensors at the rear of the car to detect approaching traffic.

Volkswagen also provides a three-year, 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty on the Touareg. You can also choose to purchase an All-wheel drive package that distributes power to all four wheels. The drive system automatically adjusts the power to the wheels and makes adjustments based on the road conditions.
