The Touareg was created with one idea in mind: Is it possible to build a truly premium and

capable SUV? Never ones to shy away from a challenge, we took every premium feature we
had, created a chassis that could handle itself on the Autobahn, and dressed it with a stylish,
sophisticated SUV design. The result was an award-winning vehicle that defied categorization.
Eight years later the Touareg is still winning rave reviews for its bevy of fuel-efficient engines
and remarkable, category-bending style. Which really begs a new question: How much can
you accomplish while driving one? That’s the Power of German Engineering.

Keyless access. Leave your keys where they are — in your pocket, your
purse, your jacket, wherever. With available keyless access, you can just
walk up to your Touareg and grasp the driver’s side door handle. You
don’t even have to remember a password, you’re already in.
3D navigation. The Touareg is available with our
top-of-the-line navigation system complete with 3D
landmarks. So the world you see ahead of you is
replicated right in the full-color display in the dash.

So much more than fuel.
Sure, you need fuel to get you going, but you really need a fuel-efficient vehicle to keep you going. The TDI
runs on ultra-low-sulfur diesel and gets up to 754 highway miles per tank.* It also has 240 hp and 406 lbs/ft of
torque for exceptional power off the line and plenty of speed to get you where you need to go.†
The Touareg Hybrid not only has a supercharged hybrid powertrain, but it packs a powerful punch with a
combined output of 380 hp and 428 lbs/ft of torque. Not to mention its capacity of up to 624 highway miles
per tank.** So if you’re going the distance, the Touareg TDI is right up your alley. If you’re more of a stop-and-go
city dweller, the Touareg Hybrid will also let you do that in style — without sacrificing your mileage. And no
matter which model you choose, every Touareg goes for a long, long time between fill-ups.
