Touareg: gold medal-winning horsepower

  • Horsepower is crucial in eventing, so to remain on top of the game having the right engine underneath you is vital.

    As the official vehicle partner of the Blenheim International Horse Trials (6-9 September 2007) for the third consecutive year, Volkswagen knows what is required to make a champion including:

    • Refined driving and off-roading technologies
    • Advanced ABS-plus braking system
    • Active Rollover Protection
    • Drives through water up to a depth of 0.5m
    • Climb hills of up to 45 degrees
    • Hill Descent Assist system
    • Tows up to 3.5 tonnes
    • 4XMOTION feature targets power to the wheels that need it most
    • 1,570 litres of luggage capacity

    From next year you will have the chance to equip your Touareg with a choice of exciting advanced optional extras. Options include Side Scan Mirrors, which scan your blind spot for vehicles approaching from behind and a powerful 600w Dynaudio sound system.
