The Volkswagen Touareg SUV manufactured by the brand of Wolfsburg since 2002 receives an interesting facelift for the final months of the year. With a sleek modern design and a strong image the SUV that paved the way for this segment is now more powerful and efficient.
The new Volkswagen Touareg (the third generation model) impresses at first sight thanks to the characteristic elements of design DNA of the brand based on accurate and clear lines and a marked horizontal orientation on the front and back. The front has been completely redesigned following the current style of the range and it highlights the new radiator grille design in the center of the vehicle lined with bi-xenon headlights as standard. In addition it has four chrome profiles extending like the headlights to the wheel arch which has a horizontal position. The lower area of the bumper is also redesigned.
This large SUV can drive on all terrains and can climb slopes up to 45 degrees and fording depths of up to 50 inches thanks to the perfect 4MOTION AWD system which ensures perfect distribution of power between the front and rear axles.
On the side are two new types of alloy wheels 18-inch design "Arica" which accentuate the sporty character thanks to its ten radios. Moreover new tires "Masafi" feature 20-inch five double spokes. At the rear striking light bumper design which also highlights the breadth of the SUV. Moreover among the exhaust is a diffuser and redesigned rear bumper houses the fog lights and LED type taillight.
Inside the spacious SUV (with 580 liters of cargo volume reaching up to 1642 liters by folding down the seats) the encoders of the new Volkswagen Touareg aluminum look as if they had been milled from a block of metal while the new ambient lighting and controls provides a more noble image with its white hue. This development model combines new colors for leather finishes and offers new decorative elements.
The V6 TDI engines already recognized equipped by Volkswagen are more powerful and more efficient. Have been modified and improved with a SCR catalyst selective catalytic reduction which greatly lowers the nitrogen oxides contained in the exhaust gas and capable of meeting the stringent EU6 emissions standard.
Also highlighted the novel function of driving "sailing" -for inertia in which the engine is disengaged from the 8-speed automatic transmission to harness the kinetic energy when not required to conserve fuel acceleration.
The aerodynamic optimization work and achieves a consumption dream. Thus the V6 TDI 204 hp version consumes 6.6 l / 100 km and reduces its CO2 emissions of 184 g / km to 173 g / km. The most powerful V6 TDI version has increased its power 245 hp to 262 hp but also reduces the consumption of 7.2 to 6.6 l / 100 km with CO2 emissions of 174 g / km.
Besides the known V6 TDI the new Touareg V8 TDI can equip a 340 hp V6 TSI Hybrid and combining the virtues of gasoline engines and hybrid technology to offer the whole 380 hp.
The improved performance consumption emissions and performance in all terrains of this third generation of the Touareg has been complemented with increased comfort thanks to improved suspension springs steel chassis offering more comfort and agility. Optionally the chassis can be fitted with air suspension.
In terms of safety one of the novelties is the multiple collision avoidance braking system as standard which stops the vehicle automatically after a first impact to minimize the kinetic energy. The system is based on detection of a collision by first airbag sensors.
He proactive system occupant protection the ACC adaptive cruise control which automatically regulates the safety distance to the vehicle ahead and Front Assist with emergency braking function are added in town.
It also highlights the View Area convenient system that transmits a complete view of the environment to the touchscreen through four cameras at the tailgate door mirrors and grille while the lane keeping assistant "Lane Assist" avoids the vehicle deviates irregularly.
The new Touareg has grown technology in paragraph infotainment incorporating for the first time combined with radio-navigation system "RNS 850" and pre-installation for mobile phone "online mobile services". This service includes search for points of interest through Google representation of maps through the "Google Earth mapping service" the "Google Street View" feature and online traffic information.
All to result in the best Touareg manufactured so far. Exclusivity modernity and practicality create a perfect symbiosis of which comes a jeep-like vehicle but that has roads and highways as their natural habitat without quibble occasional off-road escapades. The new Volkswagen Touareg has begun marketing in European markets in October and has a starting price of just under € 58000.
