Touareg V8

From $141,990 +ORC*

The universal control centre with no switches.

The Innovision cockpit is one of the highlights of the Touareg. The wide, screen with brilliant display offers a uniquely clear layout for the driver and an intuitive operating concept.

For responsive steering and stable cornering

The 4-corner air suspension reduces lateral tilt and the tendency to understeer. The result? Amazingly dynamic driving characteristics.

Set the mood, 30 different colours

There’s always a particularly comfortable ambiance in the Touareg when it gets dark, you have the option of 30 different colour options to choose from.

Touareg V8 Performance

Delivering 310 kW of power and maximum torque from the 4.0-litre eight-cylinder engine. Whether cruising at low speeds, or on the highway – the engine provides excellent & responsive acceleration. The Touareg V8 TDI showcases its performance when it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h under 5 seconds.

The power to take you places

The Touareg has been built to be driven and enjoyed. It features a 4.0L turbocharged diesel engine capable of providing an impressive 310 kW of power and a colossal 900 Nm of torque. This is the most powerful diesel engine ever to be fitted to a Volkswagen.

Responsive steering, stable cornering

Active Roll Stabilisation System (ARS) on the front and rear axle reduce the lateral tilt when cornering. They are electromechanical rather than hydraulic. The Touareg thus responds sensitively to steering, even at low speeds. The optional system prevents understeer during more dynamic cornering: the front wheels push the vehicle less forcefully into the outer edge of the bend.

*Standard on V8 R-Line First Edition. Optional on V8 R-Line.

Always on a high

And to ensure that there’s no damper on your driving enjoyment, the Touareg V8 comes with air suspension as standard. It adapts the height of the body to all terrains. The 4-corner air suspension also reduces lateral tilt and the tendency to understeer. The result? Amazingly dynamic driving characteristics*.

*4-Corner Air Suspension with Adaptive Chassis Control (DCC) standard on Touareg V8 R-Line and V8 R-Line First Edition.

*All-wheel steering standard on Touareg V8 R-Line First Edition..

Greater stability and manoeuvrability in one, thanks to all-wheel steering

A smaller turning circle is possible when the rear wheels steer as well as the front wheels. On request, you can now also use this technique with the Touareg, which makes the vehicle hugely manoeuvrable and improves its steering stability. Furthermore, when travelling faster than 50kmh the rear wheels also steer to help with cornering*.

*Standard on V8 R-Line First Edition. Optional on V8 R-Line (part of the 48-Volt Active Roll stabilisation package).

  • Position on the window can be adjusted

Safety from every angle

There is a wide range of sensors to choose from for the Touareg V8 TDI. These encompass technologies such as “Night Vision” (detects people and animals in the dark using a thermal imaging camera), “Traffic Jam and Roadwork Lane Assist” (partly assisted steering, lane departure warning, acceleration and braking up to 60 km/h), “Front Cross Traffic Assist” (responds to cross-traffic in front of the Touareg), active all-wheel steering (making the Touareg as easy to handle as a compact car), and a head-up display projected onto the windscreen (windshield head-up display), which puts the most important information into the driver’s selective field of vision.

Area View

Coming out of a tight parking space, manoeuvring in impassable terrain or attaching a trailer: there are many situations where a driver might need an extra pair of eyes. With Area View, you’ve found them: four cameras monitor the area around the vehicle and supply useful views on the infotainment system screen. Almost like magic: coupling all the cameras help the system create a bird’s eye view – and you’ve got the full view from above, of the car and its surroundings.

Letting you see what is hiding in the darkness

You’ve probably seen night vision systems in spy films. Now you’ve got one in your car. The beams of the optional night vision system in the Touareg generate a thermal image of your surroundings, including people and animals, in your cockpit.*

*Optional on Touareg V8 R-Line.

That way you are protected from all sides

Proactive Occupant Protection System (POPS) can secure you from all sides to protect you and your passengers. If the system identifies a risk of collision, it automatically triggers protection measures, including belt tightening, moving seats into an upright position and closing all windows and the tilting panoramic sunroof. All within the system limits*.

*Works within the system limit

Traffic? Let the Touareg take charge

Assistance in stop-and-go traffic. The Traffic Jam Assist relieves pressure on the driver in stop-and-go traffic, helping to avoid accidents on slow-moving traffic.

Keeping you safe from a distance

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with control is by far one of the most useful driver assistance systems. You simply specify your maximum speed and the system helps you to adhere to it and not exceed it, within limits of the system. Also, a minimum distance is automatically maintained between you and the vehicle in front, within the limits of the system.

Because you can’t see around corners

Blind exits and intersections with poor visibility force drivers to “nose out” slowly. The Front Cross Intersection Assist uses radar technology to help, as it were, to look around corners, within the limits of the system. The system therefore helps to detect crossing vehicles or pedestrians earlier.
