Instead of the usual four wheels, the Snowareg ploughs through the deep snow with a heavy crawler-track system, controlled by the standard steering wheel and boasting enormous ground clearance plus an excellent view. With numerous additional special models, Volkswagen has over the years made the most of the various features offered by the SUV for different scenarios and met the needs of Touareg drivers. The Kong special model, with 19-inch alloy wheels and a seven-inch display screen for a true cinematic atmosphere on the back row was, for example, designated as the official crew vehicle for the shooting of the King Kong remake.

Introduced at the end of the second model generation, the Touareg Executive Edition catered to tribal chiefs and business men alike, as well as other well-to-do customers. Among other things, this luxury version was notable for its optional Malbec Red paintwork, and homage to the French red wine grape Malbec. The maritime special model North Sails was introduced in 2008 especially for sailing enthusiasts, conceived with a lot of chrome, white leather and aluminium applications. The heterogeneous nature of the Tuareg people is reflected in the universality of the luxurious Volkswagen SUV.
