The most technically innovative and economical Touareg in Volkswagen’s history.

Volkswagen Group Australia is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated second generation Touareg, making its debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne.

The Touareg is a luxury SUV that offers a high level of comfort, sporty driving properties, avante-guard styling, excellent quality and expedition capabilities – essentially the best of the passenger car and SUV worlds unified in one concept.

While the new Touareg maintains all the virtues of space, comfort, refinement and off-road and towing ability which made the first generation so popular, Volkswagen takes the model forward thanks to the use of lightweight construction techniques, more fuel-efficient engines and new technologies.

Clean new styling draws inspiration from the design direction established by the Golf and new Polo – the new Volkswagen Design DNA. Despite being lower and thus appearing sleeker, the new Touareg is larger than the previous model. It is almost 50 millimetres longer in wheelbase, its overall length has increased by 144 millimetres, yet it weighs up to 90 kg less and is up to 20 percent more fuel-efficient.

This drive in efficiency is further epitomised by the standard fitment of a remarkable new 8-speed automatic transmission.

A choice of sophisticated new options is also available including an advanced Driver Assistance Package which incorporates a range of features such as Lane Assist, Side Assist and ProActive Occupant Protection System.

All new Touaregs will feature BlueMotion Technologies including brake energy recuperation and Start/Stop functionality.

Standard equipment across the range – nine airbags, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Auto Hold and Hill Hold Assist, ASR, EDL and ESP with active rollover protection function, EBC and Off-road Function with Anti-lock Braking System (ABSplus) and Hill Decent Assist. Entertainment and technology equipment fitted as standard includes coloured Multi-function Display and Bluetooth® connectivity.

Model Year 11 and Model Year 12 changes
In order to satisfy market demand within Australia, Volkswagen elected to introduce the next generation Touareg as early as possible. As such, Model Year 11 and Model Year 12 Touaregs will be available in 2011, both of which will have different specifications. Please refer to the Technical Specification sheet for more details.
