The new Touareg is already gathering some great reviews thanks to some of its redesign elements and several performance upgrades over the previous models. The stylish SUV has also been receiving praise for its clever use of technology inside the cockpit and including a broader range of features for drivers such as trailer assist which makes towing and parking trailers much easier.

The third generation Touareg features a fully digitised ‘Innovision cockpit’ which includes a 12-inch digital cockpit and a 15-inch display, merged to form a seamless digital operating unit that is inclusive of everything you need when driving. 

The new Touareg also features the largest range of driver assistance and comfort systems available thanks in part to a brand new single central control unit.  These include Night Vision assistance system (detects people and animals in darkness via a thermal imaging camera), Roadwork lane assist and much more. There is even a ‘Windshield Heads-up display’ projected directly onto the windscreen. These are just some of the features that ensure that you are able to drive safely in confidence and comfort.

The first wave of the new Touareg models include the SEL, The R-Line and the R-Line tech all have the option of 3.0 TDI SCR 231PS or 285PS. These models are available to purchase now.

For those looking for more choice in power and performance, new options will be coming later this year. A V6 petrol engine (340PS) and a V8 turbodiesel (421PS) will be heading to Europe hopefully before the end of the year.

An official announcement on when these will be made is expected in the coming months.
