The new Volkswagen large SUV is based on the V6 TDI version and is powered by a 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6 with 180kW of power and 550Nm of torque.
The company says it is aimed at buyers looking to the Touareg for its towing capacity, as it has the benchmark 3.5-tonne capability, and a 100-litre fuel tank for extended driving range.
The new model will feature equipment changes such as 19-inch alloy wheels (a downgrade on the 20-inch rims fitted to the V6 TDI, but with more suitable tyres for adventurers), as well as distinct bi-xenon headlights, Vienna leather trim, roof racks, and interior details in piano black and silver. Over the regular model, the Adventure gets a surround-view camera rather than just a rear-view cam.
There will be four colours available: Pure White, Canyon Grey metallic, Deep Black pearl, and a model-exclusive hue called Sand Gold metallic (pictured).
The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg Adventure will be priced at $79,990 plus on-road costs, though you can expect drive-away deals.
Volkswagen also has the Element version of the Touareg, based on the entry-level model, and it recently had a limited number of Wolfsburg versions, too.
