Under the bonnet it will be available with various engines. The first engine option is a V6 FSI that has an output power of 328 hp. It will take you to a top speed of 228km/h and it only needs 7.8 seconds to take it from 0 to 100km/h. The other is the hybrid V6 TDI BlueMotion engine. This has an output of 276 hp. It has a top speed of 218km/h. The powerful one is a V8 TDI which has 335 hp. It has a top speed of 242 km/h and will only need 5.8 seconds to get to 100km/h.
2nd Generation VW Touareg
All the new engines come fitted with a stop-start system. It works by cutting off the engine when not in use for example in a huge traffic jam or on the red light. The driver only has to put his foot on the brake pedal and when the car stops, the feature is activated. On releasing the brake pedal the engine comes back to life and the driver can resume driving.

Married to all the engines is all new 8 speed automatic gear box. It replaces the slow shifting 6 speed automatic in the previous model. The advantage of an 8 speed gear box is that the engine can operate more efficiently as it has more gears to ‘play’ with. The top speed can be reached easily thanks to two more extra gear ratios in the gearbox. 

First VW Touareg
The Edition X Touareg comes with a top class interior that makes it even more extra special. Occupants will enjoy exclusive Nappa leather trim in captivating amber brown colour. Decorative inlays made of ebony wood are fitted on the doors and instrument panels.
