The new Touareg uses air suspension to give you quite literally the highest level of driving comfort: it adapts the height of the car to all terrains, and gives you the option of “COMFORT”, “NORMAL” OR “SPORT” driving profiles so you’re in complete control of your ride. The car can also be raised to give you 258 mm ground clearance, or lowered to make loading and unloading easier. You may not expect a luxury SUV to deliver such sporty performance, but the new Touareg doesn’t disappoint. Electro-mechanical active roll stabilisation reacts more quickly and at lower speeds than conventional stabilisers, reducing lateral tilt and understeer. So you can drive with precision and agility, even on rough terrain.
Imagine a screen as big as your laptop, with an interface you can customise just like your smartphone. It may sound futuristic, but it’s here in the new Touareg. We call it the Innovision Cockpit. The Innovision screen sits next to your 12-inch digital instrument cluster, and is angled towards the driver, giving you an ergonomically optimised display that puts everything you need within easy reach. You can customise your Home screen with your favourite apps and photos, use Car-Net App Connect to see your compatible smartphone apps, and even let your passengers select the infotainment while you drive. A pioneering first in a Volkswagen, the new Touareg is the only SUV in its class to present you with a gloriously clear 15-inch Innovision glass display. A richly colourful screen that merges seamlessly into your digital dashboard, it does away with buttons, knobs and dials, using just the power of your touch, gesture and voice to control your car.
The Touareg’s generous proportions give you the freedom to move. The boot combined with the sliding and foldable rear seat are particularly impressive: they use a 40:20:40 ratio that makes them hugely flexible. And for even more convenience, you can use the optional Easy Open package to open the boot with the touch of a button or even with a wave of your foot if you’re standing by the car and have the key with you.
We’re constantly innovating clever technology to keep you safe and make your driving experience a pleasure. Emergency Assist combines a host of other driver assistance technologies to keep you safer than ever before. We hope you never need it, but it’s great to know it’s there, just in case. The new Touareg’s proactive occupant protection system keeps you safe and sound from all sides. If the system identifies a risk of collision it automatically protects you by tightening the front seat belts, moving the seats upright and closing the doors, windows and sunroof.
