Volkswagen presented the latest version of the Touareg in Beijing on Friday, thereby commencing its SUV campaign on the brand's most important market. The third generation is a technological showcase with a large number of innovations, and shows the brand's technical progress: the Innovision Cockpit is particularly impressive, with a large display that is mostly operated by touch. The luxury SUV is also packed with assistance systems that make driving in the biggest model of the SUV fleet safer and more comfortable.
The brand's new flagship has made gains in both length and width. It is almost eight centimeters longer and more than four centimeters wider than its predecessor. The trunk also has 110 liters of extra space, taking the total capacity to 810 liters. But the SUV is no heavier - on the contrary: the Touareg comes in a composite design and consists up to 48% of aluminum. The rest is made from high-tech steels. This makes the third-generation more than 100kg lighter than before.
