With apreview at the end of August that summed up the details surrounding the speedier SUV, the Touareg R-Line is now ready for its closeup. Volkswagen’s new R-Line package for the new generation Touareg is setting its sights on the BMW M-Series and the Mercedes AMG Series, and it’s doing so with 20-inch light-alloy wheels in a dynamic design, a sportier chassis, R line logos on the outer side panels and front stainless steel door sill, a 3-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and lever selector, and aluminum inserts.

Volkswagen is also offering a R-Line "Plus" package that includes 20-inch alloy wheels, heated front sports seats, two-tone leather, R-Line logo, R-line specific inlays on the instrument panel, door trim, and center console.

Under the hood, Volkswagen will place a turbocharged V8 engine with an output of 450 HP borrowed from the Audi Q7. It is rumored that the Touareg might also be getting a hybrid version that combines the same 500 HP turbo V8 engine with the electric motor found in the Touareg Hybrid.

The R-Line package is priced at 2760 euro and the R-Line "Plus" package at 3355 euro.

Even though it is only looking so simple and ordinary on its exterior detailing, I still can say that I would prefer to have it than to other overdressed SUV vehicles, and I’m glad that it can offer a very comfortable interior.

I still love the fact that it is so practical to use for everyday transportation. That’s why it doesn’t really matter if it had a simple design and detailing. I just only hope that being a hybrid car, it can be performed very well.

In spite of having a simple and ordinary design and styling, I must say that I’m still impressed with this one, for the fact that it is so reliable on the road and very practical to use daily.
