One glance is enough to know: this is a premium SUV bursting with character. But not only does the new Touareg mirror the symbiosis between flawless design and luxurious features – it also impresses with its everyday practicality that you will simply love. And when you choose the Touareg Elegance eHybrid, you know you are being powered by visionary drive technology.
The Touareg Elegance eHybrid is a plug-in hybrid that combines an electric motor and a TSI petrol engine. When the battery is sufficiently charged, you start in electric mode, producing zero local carbon emissions. If you activate hybrid mode, you combine both drives for maximum system output of 280 kW (381 PS). A special highlight in this mode is the interplay between the navigation system and drive management. When you enter your destination into the navigation system and start route navigation whilst in hybrid mode, the combustion engine and electric motor work in perfect harmony with each other for the entire duration of your journey.
The HD matrix headlight not only provides better visibility at night but also supports you when driving. More than 19,000 individually controllable LEDs are used for each headlight.
This enables your Volkswagen to project markings onto the road, for example, when the high beam is switched on. These make it easier for you to drive through narrow construction sites on the motorway or to stay in lane. In addition, the HD matrix headlight improves the function of Dynamic Light Assist. This means that other road users and traffic signs can be masked out even more precisely from your own high beam. When you start or park your vehicle, the HD matrix headlight has a special light animation ready for you.
The new Touareg is an SUV that meets high expectations – and proves this too with a striking and sophisticated design. The wonderfully expressive front section with prominent air intakes and the powerful rear accentuate the sporty presence of the Touareg. Its balanced proportions emphasise its elegance – as well as its size, which makes it a comfortable companion on the road.
As soon as you sit inside the Touareg, it’s plain to see: the stylish interior design says it all. An elegant double seam runs from the dashboard across to the door sill. Optionally, the white ambient lighting ensures a pleasant atmosphere. The background lighting is available optionally starting with the Elegance equipment line with 30 different colours. The high-quality, harmoniously coordinated materials ensure a feel-good atmosphere straight away.
The Black Edition equipment line is ideal if you want to lend your Touareg an even sportier feel with distinctive black accents, creating a real presence on the road. And to improve the driving experience even more, there’s the heatable multifunction steering wheel in leather with paddles.
The black styling elements include the following equipment:
Strength, success and performance are defined today by responsible action. The Touareg R eHybrid with plug-in hybridtechnology is the most powerful Volkswagen of all time. It brings absolute performance from the race track onto the road with passion and motorsport in its blood.
The standard Discover Pro Max navigation system is the flagship of Volkswagen’s navigation systems:
The digital instrument cluster and the 38.1 cm (15 inch) screen of the infotainment system form one curved glass surface: the Innovision Cockpit.
Your Volkswagen with optional Park Assist Pro can not only tell you whether a parking space is big enough as you drive by – it also parks for you.
Up to a speed of 25 mph, Park Assist Plus permanently searches for suitable parallel parking spaces. Up to a speed of 12 mph, it also searches for parking bays.
Once you have decided on one of the parking spaces found, you start the parking process. Park Assist Pro can carry out the parking manoeuvre for you.
You only have to monitor the parking process and intervene if necessary.
But Park Assist Pro can do even more. It can also drive out of a parallel parking space and can help you with a failed parking manoeuvre by completing the process for you.
Park Assist Pro not only offers all the advantages of Park Assist Pro, rather also allows you to control the process of driving in and out of the parking space from your smartphone. You just need to install the Park Assist Pro app on your smartphone.
Once your Volkswagen finds a suitable parking space, you can get out of the car and start the parking process from outside via your smartphone.
You can also control the process of driving out of a parking space remotely so you no longer need to squeeze into tight spaces when getting into the car.
In addition, Park Assist Pro includes Area View.
The connectivity offerings from Volkswagen give you more convenience and entertainment. The connection of your Touareg to the Internet and your smartphone helps you to reach your destination more relaxed - you only have to drive yourself.
With a host of VW Connect services available to you, you can decide on full connectivity from the outset. Once you have completed the one-off activation processand signed in with your Volkswagen ID, it is incredibly easy to use our free, innovative online services.
VW Connect not only makes your everyday life with your Volkswagen more pleasant, but also more convenient. It allows you to access important vehicle information and offers valuable convenience with Breakdown Call or Service Scheduling.
And with the Volkswagen App for your smartphone, you have important information about your Volkswagen at a glance even when out and about: for example, you can check the remaining range or that all doors and windows are closed.
The entire world of Volkswagen digital services takes connectivity in your Touareg to a higher level: VW Connect Plus offers additional smart technologies as an option.
These include intelligent navigation, which provides you with up-to-date traffic information on route changes virtually in real time, or where you can find warnings regarding traffic disruptions. The Online Map Update ensures that your maps are always up to date. Meanwhile, the latest information about filling station prices and available spaces in car parks means that you will arrive feeling more relaxed. And the Internet Radio service ensures that your vehicle provides the full benefits of online radio. This makes searching for and playing live channels and podcasts fun and easy.
For convenient use of apps and content, the App-Connect is ideal. Music, news, maps or audio books are transmitted to the display of the infotainment system and can therefore be used within your field of vision. Two interfaces are possible for connecting smartphones: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto from Google. Wireless connection makes usage particularly convenient.
