Satisfies all your primal instincts. Power. Power. Power.

If you want to get to know one of the greatest strengths of the Touareg, then step on the accelerator pedal. Going beyond the limits in the Touareg starts directly under the bonnet. The V6 TDI engine will convince you with the latest electronics and many ingeniously simple design solutions. This engine has been developed to give the Touareg a very individual, unmistakable character. The trailblazing combination of common rail and piezo in-line injectors facilitates five precisely metered injection processes per stroke. This improves the smooth running and exhaust qualities, and the even distribution of fuel converts every drop of diesel into superior performance.
