IQ.Light HD matrix headlights

More than 19,000 interactive LEDs project a light carpet exactly onto the driving lane and illuminate the road more precisely than ever before. The interactive lighting system makes driving at night even more comfortable.​

Twice the drive. Twice the fun.

​The Touareg Elegance eHybrid is a plug-in hybrid that combines and electric motor and a TSI petrol engine. When the battery is sufficiently charged, you start in electric mode, producing zero local carbon emissions.  If you activate hybrid mode, you combine both drives for maximum system output of 280kW (381PS)​

Confident appearance

The new Touareg is an SUV that meets high expectations - and proves this too with a striking and sophisticated design.  The wonderfully expressive front section with prominent air intakes and the powerful rear accentuate the sporty present of the Touareg.  Its balanced proportions emphasise its elegance - as well as its size, which makes it a comfortable companion on the road.​​

Take a seat and enjoy

As soon as you sit in the Touareg, it’s plain to see: the stylish interior design says it all. An elegant double seam runs from the dashboard across to the door sill and the high-quality, harmoniously coordinated materials ensure a feel-good atmosphere straight away.

The background lighting is available optionally starting with the Elegance equipment line with 30 different colours.

The lower and upper area of the interior can thus be illuminated in different colours independently of each other. If two different colours are selected, the main colour is adopted additionally for the displays. You can therefore create completely different lighting scenarios depending on your mood.​

Tailor-made individuality

​The Touareg impresses with abundant standard equipment. And you also benefit from the following extras in the Elegance and Black Edition variants:


When you opt for the Elegance equipment line, your Touareg will shine with an elegant signature light at the front and with HD matrix headlights and impressive 3D LED tail light clusters and an illuminated logo at the rear. The interior includes highlights such as the Vienna leather package, the in the front in stainless steel as well as a choice of wood or aluminium decorative trim and the white ambient lighting.

Black Edition

The Black Edition equipment line is ideal if you want to lend your Touareg an even sportier feel with distinctive black accents, creating a real presence on the road. And to improve the driving  experience even more, there’s the heatable multifunction steering wheel in leather with paddles.​

​With the driver in mind. Absolutely no switches.

  • 38.1cm (15 inch) TFT touchscreen with colour display

Stylishly dressed in leather

Two high-quality leather packages are available to you for your Touareg: Puglia and Varenna.


Standard on R trim, sustainably tanned with, the Puglia leather package conveys an exceptionally elegant look and feel in the interior. Piping in ceramique and in the shoulder area and on the insides of the doors lend the seats a special charm.


Optional on Elegance and Black Edition, the seats in the Varenna leather package have a diamond pattern and comes in light grey (Mistral).

Completely new perspectives

Huge dimensions for big impressions. The tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof covers almost the entire roof and also offers passengers in the rear a virtually unrestricted view of the sky. A little extra fresh air? The front half of the roof opens at the press of a button or extends fully over the rear part.

Inspiring worlds of sound for new horizons

The new Touareg is transformed into a mobile concert hall with the optionally available DYNAUDIO Consequence sound system:

  • 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound from 14 loudspeakers installed in the interior
  • Four treble loudspeakers, two mid-range loudspeakers, four bass loudspeakers and two effect loud speakers in the rear
  • One centre loudspeaker in the front and a subwoofer in the luggage compartment
  • 730-watt power amplifier

Your eyes remain on the road

​Being able to check important information while also keeping an eye on the road: this is a major advantage of the optional head-up display. Part of the windscreen  becomes a projection surface that can display your speed, messages from your driver assist systems or navigation instructions. The projection itself is still clearly legible, even when light is shining directly onto the windscreen. And you can switch off the display at any time if you no longer need it.

Opens with ease, closes securely

The Keyless Access comfort package does the heavy lifting when your hands are full. It allows you ​to open and close the rear lid without the need for any contact. ​A simple foot movement under the rear of the new Touareg is all it takes to trigger the sensor to do it for you. In addition, the rear lid also closes electrically – at the press of a button.

More agile steering, more comfortable manoeuvring

​With the optional all-wheel steering, the rear wheels are turned to an angle opposite to the front wheels up to 23 mph. The turning circle is reduced by more than one metre as a result. At a higher speed, the rear wheels are turned in the same direction as the front wheels. The Touareg is therefore more agile and more stable when changing lanes.

​Riding on Air

The Touareg lets you decide what type of experience you want. Depending on the driving mode, the air suspension​* lifts the vehicle to a  lifts the vehicle to a of 258 mm. The rear of the vehicle can also ​be lowered​ by 40 mm for convenient loading or unloading.​

*optional on Elegance, standard on Black Edition & R

Adaptive cruise control (ACC)

Adaptive cruise control ACC helps you to maintain a previously set maximum speed and a preset distance to the vehicle in front. ACC also supports you with predictive cruise control and cornering assistance.

ACC can therefore adapt the vehicle's speed to the relevant speed limits and road layouts (bends, roundabouts, etc.)/

Emergency braking assistant "Front Assist"

 The standard Front Assist emergency braking system with pedestrian and cyclist monitoring can warn you of critical situations involving pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles. It will even brake automatically in emergency situations.

For a complete overvew.

Manoeuvring in the busy city centre, in a multi-storey car park or in rough terrain: there are many situations in which drivers could use a few extra eyes. With Area View* you get them in the form of four cameras that capture the area around the vehicle and transfer helpful information to the screen of the infotainment system. For example, you can see kerbs orparking markings better and even look around the corner.

*optional on Elegance and standard on Black Edition and R

The new Touareg. Staying connected with the world.

​With a host of VW Connect services available to you, you can decide on full connectivity from the outset. Once you have completed the one-off activation process and signed in with your Volkswagen ID, it is incredibly easy to use our free, innovative online services.

​VW Connect not only makes your everyday life with your Volkswagen more pleasant, but also more convenient. It allows you to access important vehicle information and offers valuable convenience with Breakdown Call or Service Scheduling.

​And with the Volkswagen for your smartphone, you have important information about your Volkswagen at a glance even when out and about: for example, you can check the remaining range or that all doors and windows are closed. 

Discover new possibilities – whether on the road or digitally

The entire world of Volkswagen digital services takes connectivity in your Touareg to a higher level: VW Connect Plus offers additional smart technologies as an option.

These include intelligent navigation, which provides you with up-to-date traffic information on route changes virtually in real time, or where you can find warnings regarding traffic disruptions. The Online Map Update ensures that ​your maps are always up to date​. Meanwhile, the latest information about filling station prices and available spaces in car parks means that you will arrive feeling more relaxed. And the Internet Radio service  ensures that your vehicle provides the full benefits of online radio. This makes searching for and playing live channels and podcasts fun and easy. 

Infotainment and entertainment for every occasion

For convenient use of apps and content, the App-Connect is ideal. Music, news, maps or audio books are transmitted to the display of the infotainment system and can therefore be used within your field of vision. Two interfaces are possible for connecting smartphones: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto from Google. Wireless connection makes usage particularly convenient.

Responsive steering, stable cornering

Active stabilisers on the front and rear axle reduce lateral tilt when cornering. They are electromechanical rather than hydraulic. TheTouareg thus responds sensitively to steering, even at low speeds. The optional system can prevent understeer during more dynamic cornering: the front wheels push the vehicle less forcefully into the outer edge of the bend.
