New running gear generation. The running gear of the Touareg is based on a new development level. Among other things, a roof load sensor is now used that is closely integrated with the vehicle electronics. This makes it possible to transfer higher transverse forces and thus increase road agility in interaction with the control systems and running gear hardware. The standard steel spring running gear and the optional air suspension running gear have also been technically modified. Both comfort and agility have been raised to a new level thanks to the use of new running gear components and a revamped control system setup. New, optional 21-inch performance tyres further improve handling and braking characteristics.
On-road and off-road profiles. Using the button for driving profile selection in the centre console, the driver can select a wide range of on-road and off-road profiles and individually control the parameters for the automatic gearbox, automatic air conditioner, steering, optional air suspension, engine responsiveness and many assist systems. Depending on the version, the Touareg is again available with innovative running gear systems such as active roll compensation (adaptive running gear) and all-wheel steering.
