2012 Volkswagen Touareg
|Taking the SUV idea into the future.|
The 2012 Volkswagen Touareg is the most technically innovative Volkswagen since the brand has been in existence. This Touareg is reinterpreting the fascinating multipurpose SUV idea in a contemporary way. It sets standards among fully off-road capable SUVs with engines that have a fuel consumption value 16mpg in the City and 23mpg on the highway. The Touareg Hybrid can be driven up to 31 MPH in purely electric mode emissions-free. Among the diesel engines, the Touareg V6 TDI with 19 MPG in the City and 28 MPG in the Highway combined fuel consumption now posts the best value in the segment of genuine SUVs.
The 2012 Touareg has been lightened by 458 pounds in the base version. Yet, the body has five percent greater torsional rigidity, which makes it the leader in its competitive class. Along with aero-dynamic refinement efforts, another factor at work here is that this Touareg is built lower to the ground than the previous model. Together with front end styling based on the new Volkswagen design DNA, this results in a smaller frontal area. All engines, now offered with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, a first in this market segment, demonstrate significant fuel economy advantages over the previous model.
