Default 2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2 Unveiled

Volkswagen has unveiled the next generation Touareg, dubbed (hehe) the Touareg 2. Let’s hope that while they were focusing on the redesign, they spent a bit of time improving reliability. More info and lots of photos after the jump.

Now granted, this is more of a facelift than an all-out redesign. Some of the changes include:


Volkswagen’s signature Waterfill grill to match the rest of the model lineup: chrome for the V6 FSI and matte chrome for the V8 FSI and V10 TDI
Redesign and restructure of the headlights: slightly wider with a subtle curve outward on the bottom
Turn signals have been repositioned lower on the front bumper, and their shape has been sharpened up
Side mirrors have slimmer, elegant lines
Roof spoiler is more pronounced
Taillights now sport LED lighting and a smoked, or darkened, color
Exhaust pipes are much larger with an oval shape and chromed
New colors available: Alaska Gray, Cranberry, Galapagos and White Gold

New instrument cluster with larger full-color display screen
Redesigned luxury seating with 12-way power adjustments
Keyless start/stop button

3.6L VR6 FSI 280HP
4.2L V8 FSI 350HP
5.0L V10 TDI twin turbo 310HP/553ft-lb
Hydraulic brake Assistant has been added to the ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program) which prevents brake pressure build-up when the gas pedal is released suddenly
Active Rollover Protection (ARP) improves rollover stability
ESP Dry Braking improves braking ability in wet conditions by repeatedly engaging/disengaging the brakes slightly during braking
