All-wheel steering system. Another innovation on board this Volkswagen is the optional all-wheel steering system. All four wheels are consequently steered at the same time depending on the driving situation. The all-wheel steering system helps the Touareg to be the most agile, large SUV available. The all-wheel steering system essentially affects two driving states: speeds below 37 km/h and speeds over 37 km/h. Up to 37 km/h – including under tough offroad conditions – the rear wheels are moved automatically at an opposing angle to the front wheels. As a result, agility and manoeuvrability are improved. Thanks to all-wheel steering, the turning circle is reduced by one full metre: from 12.19 m to 11.19 m. This is, of course, particularly noticeable when manoeuvring at slower speeds. If the speed increases to more than 37 km/h, the rear wheels automatically turn in the same direction as the front wheels when steering. This allows the driving behaviour to be significantly smoother, as the all-wheel steering stabilises lane changes and evasive manoeuvres.
