Sprinkle with a choice of engines, offering power and unparalleled towing capacity. Then wrap everything together in a form that’s as eye-catching as its performance is breathtaking and you have the Touareg, pure sophistication.
With the Touareg you have a choice of three TDI diesel engines producing seamless power and incredible torque. 150kW, 180kW and 250kW. There’s bound to be one just right for you.

Powerful and vigorous-looking on the outside with five-star luxury in, the Touareg brings you the best of all worlds.
Elegance abounds. Bi-Xenon headlights, chrome integrated tailpipes, roof spoiler and a radiator grille with chrome. They are simply all hints at the versatility of what lies beneath the surface.
No matter what challenge the Touareg is conquering on the outside, inside the Touareg you’ll be enjoying the best seats in the house. Chrome highlights and luxury trims enhance the air of refinement. Careful consideration ensures all controls are within easy reach so you can concentrate on the road ahead. The steering wheel is bound in leather. And the front seats are fully adjustable with leather appointed upholstery for the ultimate in comfort.
Just because you have the power to take on the most rugged terrain, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort.
Front seats feature 14-way electric adjustment including electro-pneumatic side bolsters, with Black Vienna leather appointed upholstery standard on the 150TDI & 150TDI Element and a choice of Corn Silk Beige or Black Nappa leather appointed upholstery for the V6 TDI. The V8TDI R-Line comes with special two-tone Flint Grey & Black Nappa leather appointed seat upholstery finished off with R-Line logo.
Let the daylight in. With the Touareg’s panoramic sunroof, a healthy dose of fresh air and sunlight will add a heightened level of exhilaration to every journey, even if it's just nipping up to the shops. Available as an option on the V6TDI, Wolfsburg Edition and the V8TDI R-Line.
The electronic tailgate, with programmable opening angle, can be opened and closed via the Touareg’s ignition key. Sensor strips prevent the door from closing on your fingers. (Automatic opening and closing tailgate not available on 150TDI.)
Air suspension with selectable setting (Comfort, Normal and Sport), self-levelling suspension, ride height adjustment and continuous speed-dependent electronic damping control results in a unique synergy of on-road and off-road qualities on the V6TDI, Wolfsburg Edition and V8TDI R-Line.
Don’t let the Touareg’s looks fool you. It’s no triumph of style over substance. Beneath its stunning exterior lies a host of top of the line technologies all working to ensure every kilometre you drive is an absolute pleasure.

The Touareg is sophistication on wheels. That’s why each SUV is packed with, both standard and optional, driver assistance technology.
The system continually evaluates steering movements and other signals, and if fatigue is detected, recommends a break.
When there’s the potential for a collision, the front seat belts tense up to put you in the best spot for airbag protection. If your car starts to slip, side windows and the sunroof are also automatically closed. (Not available on 150TDI and 150TDI Element. Optional on V6TDI and standard on Wolfsburg Edition and V8TDI).
Using sensors, a flashing symbol on each of your side mirrors will inform you if there’s a vehicle in your blind spot. (Not available on 150TDI and 150TDI Element. Optional on V6TDI and standard on Wolfsburg Edition and V8TDI).
This state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to prevent or mitigate a secondary impact during a collision. If an initial collision has been detected by the airbag sensors, the vehicle is automatically slowed so that a secondary impact will be lessended or avoided.
The Touareg has nine airbags. Front airbags for the driver and passenger, complemented by side airbags for the front and rear. Full length curtain airbags provide head protection for both the front and rear. While an additional airbag protects the driver's knees.
Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when the vehicle in front is too close. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it partially applies the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake will prepare the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.
The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit.
Lane Assist reduces the likelihood of your vehicle veering off the road or accidentally crossing into another lane, warning the driver via steering wheel vibrations.
