Volkswagen reveals new Touareg prices

Volkswagen has announced its new Touareg 4x4 is available to order now for first deliveries in the UK in October, and prices will start at £38,255.

The entry level model uses a 236bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that returns 38.2mpg average economy and 195g/km of CO2 emissions. As with all new Touareg models, the 3.0 V6 TDI comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and this model is expected to be the best seller in the range.

A 4.2-litre V8 TDI is also available and comes with 335bhp and a whopping 590lb.ft of low rev shove to replace the previous Touareg's 5.0-litre V10 diesel as the premium model. This engine is capable of 31.0mpg combined economy and 239g/km of CO2 emissions, while prices start at £56,530.

The only petrol engine to be offered with the new Touareg comes in the Hybrid model that also uses an electric motor to give 34.4mpg and 193g/km emissions. Together, the 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine and electric motor provide 375bhp and 428lb.ft of shove to deliver 0-62mph in just 6.5 seconds. Prices for the Touareg Hybrid start at £54,995 and it comes in a single, stand alone trim.

The 4.2 V8 turbodiesel model comes only in top spec Altitude trim, while the 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel can be had in entry-level SE trim, off-road biased Escape specification or top grade Altitude.

All new Touareg models come with full-time 4Motion four-wheel drive, leather seats, climate control, satellite navigation with touch screen, DAB digital radio and six airbags.
