Touareg individualization options
This step of the individualization program offers various exterior and interior features for the Touareg. In the first step, the customer decides on a specific engine version and the classic special equipment from Volkswagen. Next to that, the configuration of the car can be complemented with decor inlays, leather equipment, wheels, steering wheel, multi-media system, TV reception, bicycle rack (inside the vehicle), door entry ledger, and design packages. Each of these details is individually available.
The Touareg Individual
The program of the independently conceptualized complete models, based on the successful off road specialist, starts with the Touareg Individual. With wooden inlays in the "Makassar" decor, dual colored nappa leather equipment and corresponding textile foot mats it satisfies the highest standards. Also on board: Door entry ledges in chrome design. As is usual for the V8 and V10 TDI, chrome ledges adorn the radiator grill, the side window frames and step tread of the rear bumper. Just like the Touareg Individual, the Touareg Exclusive Edition has 19" alloy wheels (type "Siena"). Furthermore, the exterior equipment has a roof rack and a chrome step tread on the rear bumper.
The Touareg Expedition
The Touareg Expedition was developed for globetrotters and in regards to the vehicles attributes this term can be taken literally. Among other things the Touareg Expedition includes specific off road features like the improved off road chassis with 25 millimeters more ground clearance as well as an aluminum underbody protection for engine, transmission, tank and differential. A robust roof rack basket with two additional head lights is also part of the standard equipment suited for adventure. Optional are furthermore (for example) a rope winch with 7963 lbs traction force and 30 meters rope length, a huge auto roof tent with aluminum folding table, an awning, a special alloy box and spare gas tank. Available on the engine side are the well known five and six cylinder engines.
The Touareg W12 Sport Edition and Executive
The only off-road vehicle in Europe with twelve cylinders was also conceptualized by Volkswagen Individual. And that in two versions: Touareg W12 Sport Edition and Touareg Executive: powered by the compact 6.0 liter twelve cylinder in unique W configuration, the 450 hp strong off-road SUV sprints from zero to 60 mph in only 5.8 seconds. Their maximum speed is limited electronically at 155 mph. The optically elegantly conceptualized Touareg W12 Executive distinguishes itself through maximum comfort, which is reflected for example in the selected exclusive leather “Rodeo” and a poplar wood grain decor. The Touareg W12 appears sporty through and through. It is delivered with 20” alloy wheels in the “Casablanca” design (Executive: 19”), re-designed front and rear apron as well side sills and broadened wheel archs designed to match. Other specific interior details are sport seats in charcoal colored nappa leather as well as the aluminum decor “Micropoint”. Apart from that, a unique full feature equipment distinguishes both W12 versions.
