Beijing reveals new Touareg

17.04.2014

THE VOLKSWAGEN Touareg has presented the local buyer with a good-value product for over a decade. The redesigned Touareg has made its debut at the Auto China show in Beijing and should reach local showrooms before the year is out.

The front-end design gets larger headlights (now bi-xenon as standard across the range), a deeper new radiator grille with fourhorizontal fins instead of two and a restyled bumper. The rear design changes include a new bumper, a rear diffuser with twin tailpipes and LED foglights.

The interior benefits from more choice, with the addition of several new interior colours for the leather seats, design accents and even lighting.

New technical features are automatic post-collision braking system, bi-xenon headlights and a coasting function on the eight-speed automatic gearbox. The latter feature utilises the vehicle’s kinetic energy when driving downhill or when acceleration is not needed. There are new low-rolling-resistance tyres fitted, stop/start technology and battery regeneration systems.

Power output for the base 3.0-litre V6 diesel remains the same while the more powerful 3.0-litre TDI’soutput goes from 180kW to 190kW.Fuel consumption has improved too, with the base diesel now using a claimed 6.6 litres/100km and the high-output diesel using 6.8 litres/100km.
