Spotted: Volkswagen New Touraeg

Recommended Posts

Autocar India Forums Exclusive!

There is an understated elegance to the Touareg that Volkswagen hopes Indian buyers will appreciate.


The sober cousin of the Porsche Cayenne, the Touareg will be launched at the Auto Expo 2012 and prices are likely to start at Rs 55 lakh. 20111216_090839__ND33226.jpgYou can identify the Touareg as a VW from a mile away and the styling on the whole is quite handsome. There is an abundance of space inside and quality should conform to VW

The family nose on the Touareg looks a little out of place IMHO. And those wheels are a joke. Apart from that, one can expect poor sales from this capable and fantastic vehicle as usual.. Sad.

Congrates on your discovery. To complement it i am posting an interesting news here.

VW Touareg TDI sets lonely record on World's Longest Highway

Volkswagen can now lay claim to another world record thanks to the efforts of off-road driver Rainer Zietlow and his team of adventurers. The crew packed into a Volkswagen Touareg TDI and covered the entire span of the Pan-American Highway from start to finish in 11 days, 17 hours and 22 minutes. The trip covered 14 countries and 16,000 miles of near non-stop driving. TUV NORD Mobility verified the time, which beat out the previous record holder by a full three days.

The journey began on July 2 in the southernmost portion of Argentina and clipped through a variety of challenging conditions. The team faced a sandstorm in Chile and treacherous muddy roads in Alaska, but preplanned fuel stops helped cut the team's time down as much as possible.

Zietlow and his teammates also played a bit of a philanthropic role by donating 10 cents for every kilometer traveled to two Latin American villages to help combat childhood poverty
