"E mode“ and "Hybrid

Using the 4MOTION Active Control menu in the updated Innovision Cockpit the driver has direct access to the hybrid functions “E mode” and Hybrid”. By touching “E mode”, the Touareg R plug-in hybrid switches to all-electric drive, and by selecting Hybrid” mode, the driver unlocks the power of the V6 engine and Boost.

With a sufficiently charged battery the Touareg R always starts in the all-electric “E mode”. It works the other way round in Hybrid” mode: If required, the driver uses the kick-down function to additionally demand the all-electric power as a “boost”.

New front design

The updated front of the Touareg R plug-in hybrid gets its iconic look from the new HD matrix LED headlights with six lenses each and new signature light. A new front grille with horizontal light strip rounds off the look from the front.


Stylishly dressed in leather

Sustainably tanned with olive leaf extract, the Puglia leather package conveys an exceptionally elegant look and feel in the interior. Piping in ceramique and quilted contrast stitching in the shoulder area and on the insides of the doors lend the seats a special charm.

  • R exlusive Puglia leather appointed upholstery
  • High gloss black centre console
  • Decorative inserts in dark brushed for dashboard and door trim panels.
  • Black Headliner


User comfort on a new level: the Innovision Cockpit

The digital instrument cluster and the 38.1 cm (15 inch) screen of the infotainment system form one curved glass surface: the Innovision Cockpit.

  • Operated by touch, gestures or voice control
  • Displays functions in graphics and animations
  • Home screen content can be customised
  • Buttons can be programmed freely for favourites and shortcuts

Light just where you need it

The HD matrix headlight not only ensures better visibility at night but also supports you while driving. Over 19,000 individually controllable LEDs are used for each headlight.

This means that your Volkswagen is able to project markings onto the road when the high beam is switched on. These make it easier for you to drive through narrow construction zones on the highway or to stay in your lane. The HD matrix headlight also improves the function of Dynamic Light Assist. This means that other road users and traffic signs can be blocked out even more precisely from your own high beam. When you start or park your vehicle, the HD matrix headlight provides a special light animation for you.
