This new Volkswagen Touareg model weighs over 200kg less than the outgoing car and is twenty percent more efficient, there is greater equipment, comfort and safety systems as standard. The new Volkswagen Touareg range will extend to four versions in the UK, the SE, Altitude, Hybrid and Escape.

The Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid model can out-accelerate many hot hatches with a zero to 62 mph time of 6.5 seconds through its combination of a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 TSI petrol engine developing 333 PS and an electric motor generating 47 PS resulting in a total output of 380 PS and 428 lbs ft of torque.  Yet the new Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid is capable of returning 34.4 mpg while emitting 193 g/km of CO2.

Standard equipment on the Volkswagen Touareg across the four ranges is comprehensive.  On the entry-level SE model, leather trim, touchscreen satellite navigation with DAB radio, six airbags, burr walnut interior trim, 2Zone climate control and 4MOTION four wheel drive are all standard.
