The Olympic stadium in Beijing was the venue for the Volkswagen group night themed “Night of the Stars”. The presentation of the Volkswagen brand was dominated by the refined Touareg and the extremely sporty Golf R 400.

VW_Touareg_3The new Touareg generation is typified by its dynamically designed front and rear sections as well as by its fresh colours and wheels. All V6 TDI versions now come equipped with an automatic post-collision braking system (helps prevent a secondary collision in case of an accident), bi-xenon headlights and a coasting function.

VW_Touareg_2While coasting, the engine is decoupled from the 8-speed  automatic gearbox to utilise the car’s kinetic energy on mountain descents or in driving phases in which acceleration is not needed, to further reduce fuel consumption.

VW_Touareg_7The interior of the versatile all-round vehicle is marked by new features, including new accents, leather colours, lighting solutions and controls. In conjunction with the RNS 850 radio-navigation system and mobile phone preparation, the Touareg will launch with “mobile online services”. In the initial phase, the following  will be available: Points-of-Interest (POI) search  via  Google,  map  display via Google Earth mapping service, Google Street View functionality and “online traffic information”.

VW_Touareg_4The latest version of the Touareg will launch on the market in diesel (TDI), petrol (FSI and TSI) and hybrid (TSI plus e-motor) models this summer.
