Car Description
The Volkswagen Touareg is a luxury 4x4 (US: SUV) automobile manufactured by Volkswagen. It is the first of this class ever produced by this manufacturer. The Touareg was co-developed with Porsche, who was also looking to add an SUV to their lineup, as a cost-sharing initiative. Porsche shares this chassis to underpin their Cayenne SUV, although there are numerous styling, equipment and technical differences between the two vehicles. Also, the Touareg replaced the Eurovan for North America as the company's truck. The Touareg was Car and Driver magazine's Best Luxury SUV for 2003, Motor Trend magazine's Sport/Utility of the Year for 2004, "Four Wheeler" magazine's Four Wheeler of the Year for 2005 & Overlander's 2003 4WDOTY The following engines are available: * 174 PS (128 kW, 172 hp) 2.5 L diesel I5 * 225 PS (165 kW, 225 hp) 3.0 L diesel V6, 500 Nm (369 ftlbf) * 240 PS (177 kW, 236 hp) 3.2 L gasoline V6 * 310 PS (228 kW, 305 hp) 4.2 L gasoline V8 * 313 PS (230 kW, 308 hp) 5.0 L diesel V10, 750 Nm (550 ftlbf) * 450 hp (331 kW) 6.0 L gasoline W12, 599 Nm (442 ftlbf) (somewhat limited-edition. Not available in the US) Link to the V10 experience site: http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/new_cars/touareg The twin-turbocharged diesel V10 engine pushes the Touareg from 062 mph (100 km/h) in 7.8 seconds, and on to 130 mph (230 km/h) maximum. The Diesel V10 was offered in the United States for a limited time in 2004 and 2005, but emissions regulations forced it off the market for a temporary period. Volkswagen is working on fixing these issues, and will return the V10 to the US lineup in 2006. The W12 version should reach 100 km/h (60 mph) in 5.9 seconds. Production of the W12 Touareg is limited to 500 units. Of these, 330 are slated for Saudi Arabia, with none going to the United States. Despite the misconception that the Touareg and Cayenne are "soft-roaders" with little or no off-road ability, Porsche/Volkswagen jointly did extensive off-road testing with test mules and both vehicles are in actuality extremely capable off-road, all that is really necessary are more aggressive tires. Volkswagen, for instance, entered a modified Touareg in the Paris Dakar.
