2012 Volkswagen Touareg picture review accessory
The first venture into the fairly well-saturated luxury SUV market, the new 2012 Volkswagen Touareg will be the most expensive vehicle Volkswagen has ever sold. When the vehicle goes on sale Summer 2012 consumers won't blink at that Volkswagen Touareg SUV price, considering all of the refinement and style consistent with a luxury SUV. With a clean and distinctive exterior design, luxurious interior, two high-powered engine options and a long list of luxury features, the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg SUV picture is one of future success in the SUV market.
By offering the following list of standard features to dispel any remaining doubt about it's luxury status, perhaps the Touareg picture is brought into sharper focus:
Sporting some of the same engineering heritage as well as the same platform of the Porsche Cayenne, the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg was developed by the same engineering team. To further secure Touareg's expected position at the top of the SUV food-chain, the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg exhibits the characteristics of a quality SUV, the finesse and comfort of fine touring sedan, and sports car road handling ability.
Not designed solely as an all-terrain work horse, the 2012 Touareg combines a car's unibody construction with terrain-smoothing suspension. This enables the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg to handle dirt trails as well as conveying five passengers on tarmac in a style they are sure to find downright cushy. To top off the Touareg's curriculum vitae, it boasts a maximum towing capacity of 7700 pounds. With its large and imposing presence, Touareg is appealing visually on the outside and inside, with a just noticeable hint of the Volkswagen mystique. Part of the proof of Volkswagen Touareg's luxury billing is in the interior where there is a distinct luxury-car appearance. There are the obligatory wood finish appointments and thoughtful layout of standard features. There is ample living room for five adults plus a large cargo area.
Under the hood, Touareg offers a 3.2-liter V6 that produces 220 horsepower with 225 pound-feet of torque. There is also an available 4.2-liter V8 that promises 310 horses at 302 lb.-ft. These numbers put the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg at the pinnacle of the luxury SUV class. Touareg puts power to the wheels through an ultra-cool all-wheel-drive system. With the suspension of the 2012 Touareg catering to the sport sedan set, there is double wishbones at all four corners, with an optional air-suspension system to add extra ground clearance when necessary. We will have to wait and see what promise the future will hold for the 2012 Volkswagen Touareg luxury SUV. This is a gamble for Volkswagen, who also intends to introduce its large luxury automobile, the Phaeton this year. Success of the Touareg may well be a reliable predictor of how well the Phaeton is accepted by a public who, up till now, viewed Volkswagen as a manufacturer of less expensive smaller vehicles.
