The third-generation Touareg is powered by a 3.0 V6 turbodiesel engine with 190kW and 600Nm, so you can confidently navigate your way through rugged terrain. Volkswagen’s new premium offering includes our patented 4MOTION® technology that powers each wheel independently, giving you traction even if all the wheels are not touching the ground. This bold new class of SUV was created for those who won’t settle even if they’re at the top of their game. Because they know there’s always more to explore. They are the type of person who constantly asks, “Where to from here?”. Well, we’ve asked ourselves the same question. Which is why we’ve designed the luxurious and technologically advanced Touareg to take you on every new adventure your restless spirit longs to pursue on this journey of life. With class-leading features ranging from Night Vision and IQ Light Matrix LED headlights to the only15” Innovision Cockpit in its class, the future of luxury exploration has arrived.
Whether exploring the city streets or untamed territories, the Touareg comes with six modes designed to enhance the overall driving experience. Each mode is easily accessible and readily controllable through the on-board computer, giving drivers the ability to tailor their driving based on the road ahead. With the availability of driving models like “Gravel” and “Sand”, drivers have great control in the often demanding South African conditions. No terrain is the same, that’s why the Touareg’s air suspension and rear-axle steering allows you to enjoy ultimate driving comfort by adapting the height of the car to the path you’re on, with a choice of Normal, Comfort, Off-road and Special Off-road driving profiles. The Touareg can also be raised to give you 70mm more ground clearance or lowered by 40mm to make loading and unloading easier. Air suspension with 4-wheel steering is standard on the Executive model and optional on the Luxury model.
