The new Touareg. Why compromise?
Tough enough to tackle rough terrain. Innovative technology that’s ready for modern life.
And bold design that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
Imagine a screen as big as your laptop, with an interface you can customise just like your smartphone. It may sound futuristic, but it’s here in the new Touareg. We call it the Innovision Cockpit. The Innovision screen sits next to your 12-inch digital instrument cluster, and is angled towards the driver, giving you an ergonomically optimised display that puts everything you need within easy reach. You can customise your Home screen with your favourite apps and photos, use Car-Net App Connect to see your compatible smartphone apps, and even let your passengers select the infotainment while you drive.
A pioneering first in a Volkswagen, the new Touareg is the only SUV in its class to present you with a gloriously clear 15-inch Innovision glass display. A richly colourful screen that merges seemlessly into your digital dashboard, it does away with buttons, knobs and dials, using just the power of your touch, gesture and voice to control your car. You can customise it just like a smartphone, and use it to see a wealth of information such as navigation and your apps.
Both exterior and interior of the new Touareg boast in innovative lighting technologies to enhance your driving experience.
It may seem like the stuff of spy films, but night vision is here in the new Touareg. It uses infrared beams to scan up to 300 meters ahead, detecting thermal radiation and projecting an image onto your Innovision screen. The system will warn you if the situation is critical1, so you’ve got one more piece of technology working to keep you safe when you’re driving at night.
IQ. Light couples LED matrix technology with a camera that detects what’s happening on the road, adapting the light distribution in response. For example, if the camera sees a road sign, the segment that illuminates the sign will be dimmed to avoid dazzling you. Likewise if a car is coming towards you, the headlights will dip automatically so that the other driver can still see clearly. It can even adapt the breadth, throw and intensity of the headlights in bad weather. It’s like your car shines a spotlight exactly where you need it.
The Touareg’s white ambient light helps keep the atmosphere chilled. However if you’d like to add a splash of colour to the interior of your car, there is the option to include a multi-coloured light. With this you have a choice of 30 different colours, from earthy greens to vibrant reds, to suit you and your passengers’ moods. The digital display will also take on your chosen hue if you opt for the Innovision Cockpit.
Cornering on country lanes and parking on city streets just got a whole lot easier, thanks to the new Touareg’s all-wheel steering. The rear wheels steer along with the front wheels. Not only does this give you a smaller turning circle, it also increases your driving stability, so you can drive more dynamicially with increased agility.
Whether you’re cruising round city streets or tackling rough ground, the new Touareg delivers an exceptional driving experience.
Don’t let the Touareg’s exterior beauty fool you; at its heart lies a rugged all-terrain vehicle. Cutting-edge 4MOTION technology powers each wheel independently. This means you’ll get traction even if not all wheels are touching the ground. Six distinct driving modes control features such as accelerator sensitivity and gear changing, so you’ll never be left wanting when the going gets tough. Two further optional driving modes, “Gravel” and “Sand”, can be included to open up the map even further.
The Touareg’s generous proportions give you the freedom to move. The boot combined with the sliding and foldable rear seat are particularly impressive: they use a 40:20:40 ratio that makes them hugely flexible. And for even more convenience, you can use the optional Easy Open package to open the boot with the touch of a button or even with a wave of your foot if you’re standing by the car and have the key with you.
You live in a connected world. Why should your car be any different?
The new Touareg has a permanent eSIM card, guaranteeing you access to the internet. One of the benefits of this is that your car’s software is always up-to-date, so you’ll never need to visit a garage or perform a manual update yourself.
