Volkswagen Australia has unveiled the limited-edition 2021 VW Touareg Wolfsburg with V6 or V8 turbo-diesel and sinister black styling.
Of the 300 units on offer, 200 will be fitted with a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 producing 210kW and 600Nm of torque, and a Golf GTI-challenging 6.5 seconds 0-100km/h time. It’s essential the same powertrain as the Touareg 190TDI.
The remaining 100 will come with Volkswagen Group’s 4.0-litre turbo-diesel V8 generating 310kW and 900Nm, enabling the large German SUV to dash from 0-100km/h in just 4.9 seconds.
Both engines are connected to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive system, while four-wheel steering and active roll stabilisation also aids handling.
The Touareg Wolfsburg features more aggressive styling cues thanks to the standard “Black Style” R-Line package which brings blacked out front grille which extends into the headlight cluster, gloss black mirror caps, black window surrounds, black roof rails and gloss black 21-inch Suzuka alloy wheels.
The black theme continues inside with R-Line Savona leather appointed upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats with massage function and memory, seat heating to the second row outboard seats, heated R-Line steering wheel with paddle-shifters, brushed stainless steel pedals, gloss black centre console and black headliner.
Other standard goodies include a Sound and Comfort package with Dynaudio Consequence sound system, four-zone climate control, soft-close doors, memory function for the electric steering column, auto-dimming mirrors and 360-degree cameras.
The Innovation Package also comes standard and adds 15-inch infotainment screen, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, head-up display, ambient interior lighting with 30 selectable colours.
