New Touareg

The new Touareg
Now open for order

​Sporty, classy, elegant.

One glance is enough to know: this is a premium SUV bursting with character. But not only does the new Touareg mirror the symbiosis between flawless design and luxurious features – it also impresses with its everyday practicality that you will simply love. And when you choose the Touareg Elegance eHybrid, you know you are being powered by visionary drive technology.

Touareg eHybrid

The Touareg eHybrid with plug-in hybrid technology is the most powerful Volkswagen of all time.

Strength, success and performance are defined today by responsible action. The Touareg R eHybrid with plug-in hybridtechnology is the most powerful Volkswagen of all time. It brings absolute performance from the race track onto the road with passion and motorsport in its blood. This plug-in hybridtechnology is also available for the first time on the Elegance trim. 

Twice the drive. Twice the fun.

The Touareg Elegance eHybrid is a plug-in hybrid that combines an 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 280 kW (381 PS). A special highlight in this mode is the interplay between the navigation system and drive management. When you enter your destination into the navigation system and start route navigation whilst in hybrid mode, the combustion engine and electric motor work in perfect harmony with each other for the entire duration of your journey.


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 presence 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 inside 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 sill panel mouldings in the front in stainless steel as well as a choice of wood or aluminium decorative trim and the white ambientlighting.

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.
The black styling elements include the following equipment:

  • Bumper in ‘R’ styling in body colour
  • Lower door sections in body colour
  • Decorative trim on the bumper in black at the front
  • Black gloss trim strips on the radiator grille and headlights
  • Mirror covers with black paintwork
  • Black gloss trim strips on side windows
  • Black painted Touareg lettering on the rear lid
  • LED tail light clusters in dark red
  • Roof railing in high-gloss black

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.
