The Touareg has been built to be driven and enjoyed. It features a 4.0L turbocharged diesel engine capable of providing an impressive 310 kW of power and a colossal 900 Nm of torque. This is the most powerful diesel engine ever to be fitted to a Volkswagen.

48-Volt Active Roll Stabilisation system

Responsive steering, stable cornering

Active stabilisers on the front and rear axle reduce the lateral tilt when cornering. They are electromechanical rather than hydraulic. The Touareg thus responds sensitively to steering, even at low speeds. The optional system prevents understeer during more dynamic cornering: the front wheels push the vehicle less forcefully into the outer edge of the bend.
*Standard on V8 R-Line First Edition. Optional on V8 R-Line.

Always on a high

And to ensure that there’s no damper on your driving enjoyment, the Touareg V8 comes with air suspension as standard. It adapts the height of the body to all terrains. The 4-corner air suspension also reduces lateral tilt and the tendency to understeer. The result? Amazingly dynamic driving characteristics.*

All-wheel steering

Greater stability and manoeuvrability in one, thanks to all-wheel steering

A smaller turning circle is possible when the rear wheels steer as well as the front wheels. On request, you can now also use this technique with the Touareg, which makes the vehicle hugely manoeuvrable and improves its steering stability. Furthermore, when travelling faster than 50kmh the rear wheels also steer to help with cornering.*
