There’s quite a bit to be excited about regarding the new 2017 Volkswagen Touareg, which we have right here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen in Orwigsburg, PA. For starters, the Touareg Wolfsburg replaces the Touareg Lux to create a three-model lineup for 2017 that also includes the Touareg Sport with Technology and the Touareg Executive. Standard advanced driver assistance features have also been added to the 2017 VW Touareg, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and the lane change assistant. All 2017 Volkswagen Touareg models also now come with standard Bi-Xenon headlights and standard LED daytime running lights and tail lights.
But that only scratches the surface of what’s new on the 2017 Touareg. The 4Motion all-wheel drive system now comes standard on all models, as does the Auto Hold feature, a 3.6-liter VR6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission that features manual gear control, a Sport mode and Dynamic Shift Program technology that adjusts shift points based on each driver’s individual style. The transmission also uses the seventh and eighth ratios as overdrive gears which reduces engine RPM by about 30 percent in top gear. This helps achieve premium fuel efficiency and creates a quieter, more relaxing highway ride.
As we mentioned, the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg comes in three different trim options. Since the 2017 VW Touareg Wolfsburg trim is the newest, let’s start there. The Touareg Wolfsburg edition features a number of design enhancements, including brushed aluminum décor, stainless steel door sills and pedals, black headliner, two-tone Vienna leather seating surfaces, heatable and ventilated front seats, gray door inserts, a Wolfsburg badge, 20-inch Tarragona wheels and contrast stitching on the floor mats, steering wheel and shifter. An all-black interior and blacked-out 20-inch Mallory wheels are also available. The 2017 Touareg Sport with Technology trim comes with all of the driver assistance features we already listed and a heated steering wheel. The 2017 Touareg Executive trim features new standard 21-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
