New Volkswagen Touareg
The Volkswagen Touareg is the German manufacturer’s smart SUV. It’s a superior animal to look at, with 18-inch alloys as standard, twin rear tailpipes and a chrome-trimmed radiator grille. No time and expense has been spared on the engineering, starting with the 4XMOTION Central Electronic Differential Lock – transmitting 100 percent of torque to either axle and giving the wheels in the most need of traction maximum grip, whatever the terrain.
Air suspension (Continuous Damping Control) adjusts to the height of the terrain under the wheels. It reacts automatically to any change in conditions, keeping the Touareg low in normal conditions for greater stability, and increasing the ground clearance by up to 300mm for the roughest terrain. There is no denying the off-road capacity of this car, able to tow 3.4 tonnes, ford water up to 500mm deep and take on a 45-degree incline when in Escape mode.
Inside the cabin, the Touareg’s ferocity is softened by gorgeous, understated leather upholstery and Climate Controlled seats. Volkswagen’s latest and most powerful radio navigation system, the RNS 850, also comes as standard. Voice-controlled and with an 8-inch colour touch-screen display, the RNS 850 is easily managed by the driver without having to lift a finger from the steering wheel.
Optional driver-assist extras include the Automatic Distance Control – the cruise control that monitors the distance between you and the car in front and keeps you at a safe speed – and Lane Change assist, warning you of cars in your blind spot if you are indicating to switch lanes. These features, along with a host of other state of the art functions (and more traditional but crucial features like all-round airbags and ABS), keep the driver and passengers safe no matter how long the journey.
