The interior of the Touareg V8 TDI is characterized by screens with digital display and control elements, tanned leather, as well as aluminum and chrome details. Most notable of all is the use of wood. Taking the “Atmosphere” design package as an example, the entire width of the dashboard is spanned by a narrow curved beam of wood – a single piece of ash that follows the shape of the dashboard.
Unlike the models with V6 engines, the Touareg V8 TDI also comes with air suspension, an electrically opening and closing trunk lid, comfortable seating, an anti-theft warning system, stainless-steel pedals, and the “Light & Visibility” package as standard. In addition, the V8 will be released with 19-inch “Tirano” alloy wheels instead of 18-inch wheels.
The product range also includes state-of-the-art assistance and chassis systems. Additional security is afforded by the night vision support, which uses a thermal imaging camera to detect people and animals in the dark. There is even a “traffic jam and roadworks assistant” that enables semi-automated steering and lane-keeping, accelerating, and braking up to 60 km/h.
