Volkswagen Flagship Touareg.


On October 5, 2020

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 8 L/100km

When Volkswagen Flagship Phaeton went to retirement in 2016 after being in production helm for fourteen years,Volkswagen had to find a suitable successor to Lead,Touareg was almost ready to accept the duties of being on top of the hierarchy in VW badged production cars.

Being the most technologically advanced Production Volkswagen, the 3rd Generation Touareg introduced globally back in May 2018 and July locally,I spend time with it on the same year ,on October month to be specific.

Having been in production since 2002,Volkswagen have already produced over 1 Million Touareg”s to date.
Back here at home I spent time with Touareg Executive R-Line with optional black style package which is the main differentiation factor to the Touareg I driven two years back.

Black Style Package brings stealthy look to the Touareg for the customer who’s reserved, expressive front end with chrome grille is replaced with a black one, IQ Matrix headlights with 128 LED”s per cluster is also “smoked” to bring that element of mean to the face.

On the side, window strips are changed from chrome to black, mirror couplings are changed from being in body color to black in the case of this Pure white Touareg.

I would have loved the R-Line badging on the fender shoulders to be also black ,but they left unchanged on being chrome and I’m also not a fan of the chrome strip on the front bumper, go wild on that black style package VW ,i expected to see no trace of chrome please, should be an easy fix though when facelift surfaces.

The inodised silver roof rails are changed to black, optional Suzuka 21 inch mags that are part of the Volkswagen R GmbH offerings are also painted black,I would mention that the black style package is only offered on top of the range Touareg Executive and works with certain exterior color combinations.

On the inside you seat on comfortable climate seats in front as standard by Volkswagen R GmbH, they can warmed and cooled and can be electrically adjusted and have memory for seating position.

The standard panoramic is largest glass to be ever installed in a Volkswagen probably at par with the panoramic roof found in another big SUV from Volkswagen called Atlas.

There’s standard induction charging and a plethora of charging and media ports inclusive of 230 Volt outlet charging point and 12V socket outlets.
Still optional with that big screen TV, Volkswagen calls it Innovision Cockpit, it’s the 15.0 inch screen mated to float with Digital Cockpit 12.0 inch high resolution digital instrumentation.

810 Litres of boot space with rear seats up, when the rear seats are folded a space of 1800 Litres is unlocked ,rear seats can also slide forward,a head room of 990mm for passengers seating at the back and with a legroom to comfortable seat passengers of three.

Being a Flagship car means all the technology available at volkswagen is loaded, Advanced Safety Package which consists of Lane keep Assist , Side Assist,Night Vision ,Head-up display,Front Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Park assist, rear view camera, cross traffic assist ,Park Distance Control (front and rear),Hill descent control / Hill start assist and Anti-Spin Regulation.


Multi-collision brake system, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Electronic Differential Lock allowing 100% of torque to any of the four wheels, Electronic Stability Programme with trailer stabilization, Electronic Brake pressure Distribution and Anti-locking Brake System.

But how does it drive?
All thanks to permanent 4Motion/all wheel drive ,there’s superb assurance of control and balance on/off-road.

A maximum of 70 per cent of the driving force is dispatched to the front axle and up to 80 per cent reaches the rear axle, with on-road driving profiles in Normal,
Comfort ,Eco, Snow and Individual
For the off-road driving profiles there is
Off-road Auto,Sand,Gravel and Expert.

The off-road gravel mode was just as sufficient for my expedition, just for better off-road balance, one cannot try to explore fully potential of the Touareg while wearing those 21 inch Black Style Mags with on road Tyres, extra care is always mandatory and I would not advise anyone to go extreme off-roading with them, they easy to scrape and that will live a bad taste in the gloss black polished alloys.

All thanks to standard 4 corner air suspension with dynamic self leveling, ground clearance can be increased by up to 70 mm .
It can manually adjusted by using rotary switches in the centre console, again this was not needed on my chosen type of terrain and rear can be dropped by 40mm for loading Heavy loads and a electrified tow bar with 3.5 Tons of towing capacity.

This unit fitted with all wheel steering as standard, meaning the back wheels turn to the direction of the front when negotiating a turn at certain speed for better balance and will turn at opposite direction when negotiating a parking maneuver or making a turn and reducing the turning circle.

I Found the Touareg to sure footed all thanks to electromechanical active roll compensation system (eAWS), in a nutshell the Conventional suspension is fitted with steel anti-roll bars at the front and rear which reach from one end of the axle to the other, two ends of the anti-roll bar twist relative to each other when cornering.

The two ends of each anti-roll bar are connected to one another by a step motor, Depending on the driving situation, the electric motor twists the two ends of the anti-roll bar relative to each other to stiffen them or even decouples them.

The 48V required to activate the powerful electric motors is built up quickly using “Supercaps” (very fast charging and discharging capacitors) all this makes sure the vehicle is parallel to the road with handling and fight the laws of physics and body roll and results to one of greater handling SUV in class relative to its size.

VERDICT:- This remains Great value for money SUV in its segment when you look at what you get as package as standard.
