Touareg V8 Performance

The power to take you places

4.0L V8 TDI Engine

The Touareg has been built to be driven and enjoyed. It features a 4.0L turbocharged diesel engine capable of providing an impressive 310 kW of power and a colossal 900 Nm of torque. This is the most powerful diesel engine ever to be fitted to a Volkswagen.

Responsive steering, stable cornering

48-Volt Active Roll Stabilisation system

Active stabilisers on the front and rear axle reduce the lateral tilt when cornering. They are electromechanical rather than hydraulic. The Touareg thus responds sensitively to steering, even at low speeds. The optional system prevents understeer during more dynamic cornering: the front wheels push the vehicle less forcefully into the outer edge of the bend.

*Standard on V8 R-Line 1st Edition. Optional on V8 R-Line. 

Don't let the Touareg's exterior beauty fool you, at its heart lies an all-terrain vehicle

Seven distinct ways to drive

Driving Profile Selection with 4MOTION Active Control gives you the option of Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, Offroad, Snow or your own Individual driving profiles so you’re in complete control.

Touareg V8 Safety

Area View

Coming out of a tight parking space, manoeuvring in impassable terrain or attaching a trailer: there are many situations where a driver might need an extra pair of eyes. With Area View, you’ve found them: four cameras monitor the area around the vehicle and supply useful views on the infotainment system screen. Almost like magic: coupling all the cameras help the system create a bird’s eye view – and you've got the full view from above, of the car and its surroundings. 

Night Vision

Night Vision

You’ve probably seen night vision systems in spy films. Now you’ve got one in your car. The beams of the optional night vision system in the Touareg generate a thermal image of your surroundings, including people and animals, in your cockpit.* *Optional on Touareg V8 R-Line.

Proactive occupant protection system*

All within the system limits. *Works within the system limit.

Traffic Jam Assist

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
