The German car manufacturer has confirmed that a facelifted version of the Touareg model will be released. The vehicle in question has been previewed at the Beijing Motor Show in April.
Volkswagen Touareg Facelift has received a restyled grille, redesigned front and rear bumpers, a reworked diffuser and bi-xenon headlamps come as standard. There are more exterior colours and the choice of two alloy designs available for this car.
Interior changes are rather limited, but include lumbar support for the front seats, two new optional wood trims along with an automatic post-collision braking system.
Under the bonnet, the regular 3.0-litre TDI diesel engines are carried over, but with lower CO2 emissions. Both engines will again be coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Volkswagen’s flagship SUV will be available in three trim levels –SE, Escape and R-Line- just like the current model. The Standard SE features 19-inch ‘Salvador’ alloy wheels, an eight-inch colour tochscreen, parking sensors, DAB radio and Bluetooth. The Escape version comes with a raised suspension, a bigger fuel capacity, extra underbody protection, black roof rails, 18-inch ‘Karakum’ alloy wheels and a headlight cleaning system. The higher-spec variant boasts 20-inch ‘Tarragona’ alloys, panoramic glass sunroof and some interior upgrades such as keyless entry and a heated steering wheel.
Volkswagen Touareg Facelift is scheduled to go on sale on August 27, with prices starting at 43,000 GBP and first deliveries slated to begin in November.
