Volkswagen has launched a new FREE app for the iPhone that highlights the Volkswagen Touareg and its capabilities on the road. The “Volkswagen Touareg Challenge” offers a choice of two Touareg models: the Touareg V6 TDI BlueMotion Technology and the Touareg Hybrid . These two models can be taken on six different tracks, road or terrain. Take the Touareg over soil, mud, gravel, or snow to see if you can beat the timed trials or succeed in the rally mode. The Touareg of choice can also be customized with a new paint job and rims. The further the gamer gets on the road, the more choices can be unlocked for customizing pleasure. Additional options provided by Volkswagen makes it easy to find a dealer in your area, give feedback to VW, get a brochure emailed to you, or even schedule a test drive.
The rally starts off at La Marina de Chile where the player must beat the preset time in order to advance to the next rally. The next rallies are set in Vina del Mar in Chile, La Cruz in Venezuela, and Calera in Peru, among others.
We did spend some time playing this game and it was actually some good old fashioned fun. The background music was catchy and we discovered that it was provided by three artists from the VW Sound Foundation: Tonbandgerat, jona:S, and Jupiter Jones. We thought that was pretty cool.
The only tip we feel we should give the player is this; if you are going to speed through the instructions like we did and happen to get stuck in a corner, make sure you notice the little pedal in the lower left hand corner. That allows you to reverse. It came in handy…a lot.
