The new Touareg. Why compromise?
Tough enough to tackle rough terrain. Innovative technology that’s ready for modern life. And bold design that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
Pushing boundaries like never before
You’ll instantly notice the new Touareg’s bold, confident design, with its wide, assertive front grill, eye-catching LED headlights and signature Volkswagen design language. But this premium SUV takes a leap forward in more than just looks: with an impressive specification, brand-new technology and levels of digital dashboard customisation never before been experienced on a car interface, the new Touareg is changing the game.
Rewriting the rule book
It takes brave creative thinking and real innovation to reshape the future. And that’s exactly what we put into the new Touareg.
Step into the driver’s seat of the future: the Touareg’s revolutionary new Innovision Cockpit screen lets you control your SUV by touch, gesture or even voice.
A pioneering first in a Volkswagen, the new Touareg is the only SUV in its class to present you with a gloriously clear 15-inch Innovision glass display. A richly colourful screen that merges seemlessly into your digital dashboard, it does away with buttons, knobs and dials, using just the power of your touch, gesture and voice to control your car. You can customise it just like a smartphone, and use it to see a wealth of information such as navigation and your apps.
Everything is crystal clear with Innovision
Imagine a screen as big as your laptop, with an interface you can customise just like your smartphone. It may sound futuristic, but it’s here in the new Touareg. We call it the Innovision Cockpit. The Innovision screen sits next to your 12-inch digital instrument cluster, and is angled towards the driver, giving you an ergonomically optimised display that puts everything you need within easy reach. You can customise your Home screen with your favourite apps and photos, use Car-Net App Connect to see your compatible smartphone apps, and even let your passengers select the infotainment while you drive.
See what’s hiding in the darkness
It may seem like the stuff of spy films, but night vision is here in the new Touareg. It uses infrared beams to scan up to 300 meters ahead, detecting thermal radiation and projecting an image onto your Innovision screen. The system will warn you if the situation is critical1, so you’ve got one more piece of technology working to keep you safe when you’re driving at night.
Shine bright with IQ. Light
IQ. Light couples LED matrix technology with a camera that detects what’s happening on the road, adapting the light distribution in response. For example, if the camera sees a road sign, the segment that illuminates the sign will be dimmed to avoid dazzling you. Likewise if a car is coming towards you, the headlights will dip automatically so that the other driver can still see clearly. It can even adapt the breadth, throw and intensity of the headlights in bad weather. It’s like your car shines a spotlight exactly where you need it.
Whether you’re cruising round city streets or tackling rough ground, the new Touareg delivers an exceptional driving experience.
Drive dynamically with all-wheel steering
Cornering on country lanes and parking on city streets just got a whole lot easier, thanks to the new Touareg’s all-wheel steering. The rear wheels steer along with the front wheels. Not only does this give you a smaller turning circle, it also increases your driving stability, so you can drive more dynamicially with increased agility.

Clean contours, dynamic proportions and assertive confidence. The new Touareg is bold and beautiful.
Broad, powerful and self-assured: the new Touareg’s strong personality is emphasised by its dominant front grill.
The vertical grille blends into the headlights, with chrome strips extending outwards from the central Volkswagen badge over the headlights. The elongated bonnet boasts clean lines, giving the new Touareg its sporty style. And the rear doesn’t disappoint: sculpted shoulders and broad tail light clusters underline a progressive look.
Blue skies and bright stars await
Fresh air, a clear view of the sky and a feeling of boundless freedom, all at the touch of a button. The new Touareg’s tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof stretches from front to back, giving you and your passengers an impressive feeling and space and light. Perfect for those days when you want to feel the wind in your hair.
Making every day a little easier
We’re constantly innovating clever technology to keep you safe and make your driving experience a pleasure.
Emergency Assist combines a host of other driver assistance technologies to keep you safer than ever before. We hope you never need it, but it’s great to know it’s there, just in case.
Here to help in case of medical emergency: if the system detects that the driver is no longer controlling the car, it will alert the driver. If the driver remains inactive, it automatically activates the hazard warning lights to alert other road users. The ACC system initiates automatic braking whilst monitoring the surrounding traffic. When this option is added it also enables Rear Proactive Occupant Protection which continuously monitors the rear and, if there is the possibility of a collision, the system reacts accordingly.
Emergency calls: safety systems that work together
In the event of an accident, Emergency Assist is your first line of defence. But should the worst happen, the system will make an emergency call as soon as the seat belt tensioner or airbag is triggered. The Volkswagen Emergency Call Centre then calls to support you and, if need be, send the emergency services as quickly as possible to the scene of the accident. You can also call them yourself at any time at the touch of a button to report an accident.
Anticipating accidents before they happen
The new Touareg’s proactive occupant protection system keeps you safe and sound from all sides. If the system identifies a risk of collision it automatically protects you by tightening the front seat belts, moving the seats upright and closing the doors, windows and sunroof1.
