Local car buyers now have the opportunity to purchase the new Volkswagen Touareg from Tower Park-based motor dealership Breeze Volkswagen. The updated model offers improved levels of comfort and safety as well as a range of more fuel efficient engines.
The updated version features revised bumpers and grilles, new alloy wheel designs, new colours and bi-xenon headlights as standard. Inside the vehicle, the front seats now come with standard lumbar support, and there are two new optional wood trims, while the optional leather upholstery in the R-Line model is now available in a contemporary two-tone Flint Grey and Titan Black.
The revised Volkswagen Touareg is more energy efficient than the prior model with the 204 PS engine now emitting just 173 g/km of CO2, 11 g/km less than before, putting it in a lower VED band than before, and also making for a two per cent benefit in kind taxation reduction for company car drivers.
Three versions are available starting with the SE, which features 19-inch ‘Salvador’ alloy wheels, RNS 850 satellite navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth 2Zone climate control, ‘Cricket’ leather upholstery’, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights, parking sensors and chrome roof rails.
An automatic post-collision braking system also becomes standard across the range for increased safety.
John Corderoy, managing director at Breeze Volkswagen, says: “We’re excited to be introducing the three versions of the luxury Touareg SUV to the showroom this autumn. The Touareg offers a comfortable and fuel efficient ride.”
He adds: “At Breeze Volkswagen we deliver a highly personal approach to business which ultimately results in the provision of outstanding levels of customer care. As a result we look forward to welcoming people to the showroom to find out more about the new Touareg.”
Prices start from £43,000, increasing to £47,500. Two versions of the Touareg are available, a 3.0-litre V6 TDI with 204 PS and a 3.0-litre V6 TDI with 262 PS. Both engines are complaint with Euro 6 emissions legislation as they incorporate a Selective Catalytic Reduction system using AdBlue, low-rolling resistance tyres and a coasting function on the standard eight-speed automatic gearbox
The Escape model features an advanced 4XMOTION off-road four-wheel drive system, with 50:50 torque split and centre and rear axle mechanical differential locks, higher off-road suspension, 18-inch ‘Karakum’ alloy wheels, 100-litre fuel tank (85 litres is standard on SE), underbody protection, black roof rails and a headlight cleaning system
The top-of-the-range Touareg R-Line features an R-Line body kit with bespoke bumpers front and rear, sill extensions and wheel arch extensions, 20-inch ‘Tarragona’ alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension, LED daytime running lights and a panoramic glass sunroof. Inside, a black roof lining, bespoke R-Line seats and aluminium-look pedals provide a luxury feel, while enhanced equipment includes a heated steering wheel; electrically operated tailgate and keyless entry and start.
