Add ambient lighting to your Touareg V6 by purchasing the lighting package.
To add ambient lighting to your Touareg V6S-R-Line, an additional $750.
A smaller turning circle is possible when the rear wheels steer as well as the front wheels. On request, you can now also use this technique with the Touareg, which makes the vehicle hugely manoeuvrable and improves its steering stability. Furthermore when travelling faster than 50kmh the rear wheels also steer to help with cornering.*
*Standard on V6S R-Line.
And to ensure that there’s no damper on your driving enjoyment, you can also equip the Touareg with comfortable air suspension if required. It adapts the height of the body to all terrains. *
*Standard on V6S R-Line.
You’ve probably seen night vision systems in spy films. Now you’ve got one in your car. The beams of the optional night vision system in the Touareg generate a thermal image of your surroundings, including people and animals, in your cockpit.*
*Optional on V6 and V6S R-Line.
Proactive occupant protection system can secure you from all sides to protect you and your passengers. If the system identifies a risk of collision, it automatically triggers protection measures, including belt tightening, moving seats into an upright position and closing all windows and the tilting panoramic sunroof. All within the system limits.
The Touareg has been built to be driven and enjoyed. It features a 3.0L turbocharged TDI engine capable of providing an impressive 170-210kW of power and 500-600Nm of torque.
Active stabilisers on the front and rear axle reduce the lateral tilt when cornering. They are electromechanical rather than hydraulic. The Touareg thus responds sensitively to steering, even at low speeds. The optional system prevents understeer during more dynamic cornering: the front wheels push the vehicle less forcefully into the outer edge of the bend.
Assistance in stop-and-go traffic. The Traffic Jam Assist relieves pressure on the driver in stop-and-go traffic, helping to avoid accidents on slow-moving traffic.
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with control is by far one of the most useful driver assistance systems. You simply specify your maximum speed and the system helps you to adhere to it and not exceed it, within limits of the system. Also, a minimum distance is automatically maintained between you and the vehicle in front, within the limits of the system.
Park Assist manoeuvres you elegantly into your parking space. All you have to do is operate the accelerator and brake, while the system takes care of the rest, within the limits of the system.
Blind exits and intersections with poor visibility force drivers to "nose out" slowly. The Front Cross Intersection Assist uses radar technology to help, as it were, to look around corners, within the limits of the system. The system therefore helps to detect crossing vehicles or pedestrians earlier.
