The Touareg V8 TDI showcases its undeniably dynamic nature in its acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. It makes its qualities clear in other areas too: whether it is being used for horses, boats or construction equipment, its high maximum trailer weight of 3.5 tonnes, combined with 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive, makes it the ideal towing vehicle for work or leisure. What’s more, the matching towing bracket (optional) can be retracted and extended at the press of a button.
The new Touareg V8 TDI comes fitted as standard with features including four-corner air suspension, a boot lid that opens and closes electrically, comfort seats in “Vienna” leather, anti-theft alarm, stainless steel pedals, the “Light & Sight” package (including automatic headlight control) and 19-inch “Tirano” alloy wheel rims. Those purchasing the new top model will also have the choice between the standard “Elegance” design package and the “Atmosphere” package. “Elegance” creates a technical interior world dominated by metal and matching colours, while “Atmosphere” offers a warm interior world where wood and natural tones prevail. The seat system and door trims of both versions have a leather finish (“Vienna” type). In addition, as is the case for all models in this product line, the sporty R-Line equipment options are also available for the Touareg V8 TDI.
Additionally, there is a wide range of sensors to choose from for the Touareg V8 TDI. These encompass technologies such as “Night Vision” (detects people and animals in the dark using a thermal imaging camera), “Traffic Jam and Roadwork Lane Assist” (partly assisted steering, lane departure warning, acceleration and braking up to 60 km/h), “Front Cross Traffic Assist” (responds to cross-traffic in front of the Touareg), active all-wheel steering (making the Touareg as easy to handle as a compact car), and a head-up display projected onto the windscreen (windshield head-up display), which puts the most important information into the driver’s selective field of vision.
