Volkswagen is kicking off the new automotive year with the world premiere of its new Touareg and the entire range of its technical capabilities and comprehensive features on March 23 in Beijing.
Significantly for the Irish market, the new model Touareg will not be available as an N1 model, so those registered for VAT may still wish to pick up the current model.
Volkswagen says its flagship is the next milestone in the largest model campaign by the company. It adds that standing at the top of the model range, the Touareg shows all of the brand's standards and power with its expressive design, innovative technologies and dynamic handling properties.
The world premiere of the top vehicle is taking place in China, which is probably recognition of the world's strongest growing SUV market and the VW’s largest individual market.
Volkswagen says the highly expressive design gives it an unmistakable appearance that is strong in character. A phalanx of innovative assistance systems give it a maximum degree of safety and comfort.
It adds that one of the largest digital cockpits in its class opens up a new type of infotainment environment. Its connectivity makes it a driving internet node.
Beneath the skin, the drive train, air suspension, rear-wheel steering and roll stabilisation all ensure a safe and dynamic driving experience.
Volkswagen says the new Tourareg is continuing the success story of this model series in a third generation. Like its predecessors, it will satisfy the rigorous standards of the premium automotive class and its customers. The exclusive SUV C-segment is currently one of the fastest growing segments in global automotive markets.
Volkswagen has sold more than one million Touaregs since the model series launched in 2002.
