The 2021 Volkswagen Touareg Wolfsburg has been announced, with only 300 of the special SUVs on offer.
Of those, 200 will be fitted with a 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6 producing 210kW and 600Nm – the high-output V6 engine offered in the Touareg range – and taking a claimed 6.5 seconds to hit 100km/h from a standstill, the same as the 190TDI, through an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The last 100 will come with Volkswagen's 4.0-litre turbo diesel V8, delivering 310kW and 900Nm to propel the SUV from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds, also via an eight-speed auto and all-wheel drive.
Four-wheel steering and active roll stabilisation aids handling.
The Touareg Wolfsburg gains more aggressive styling cues, with the Black Style R-Line Package adding a black front grille, which continues to the automatic LED matrix headlights, gloss black mirrors caps, window surrounds, and roof rails, privacy tint, and gloss black 21-inch Suzuka alloy wheels.
The theme continues inside with R-Line Savona leather appointed upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats with massage function and memory, second row heated outboard seats, heated R-Line steering wheel with paddle-shifters, brushed stainless steel pedals, gloss black centre console, and a black headliner.
A panoramic sunroof can be optioned for an additional $3000.
Occupants also enjoy a Sound and Comfort package with 360-degree cameras, Dynaudio Consequence sound system, four-zone climate control, automatic wipers, tyre pressure monitors, soft-close doors, and memory function for steering column and auto-dimming mirrors.
Safety tech includes IQ Drive, with front assist with pedestrian monitoring (Volkswagen's term for collision alert and autonomous emergency braking), lane assist with adaptive lane guidance, emergency assist, travel assist, adaptive cruise control, side assist and front and rear cross traffic assist, park assist plus, driver fatigue detection, proactive occupant protection, and front and rear parking sensors.
The Innovision Package also comes as standard on the Touareg Wolfsburg, with a 15-inch infotainment screen, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, head-up display, and selectable ambient lighting. Night vision assist uses an infrared thermal camera to help drivers identify pedestrians and animals at night.
There are four USB ports throughout the cabin, as well as wireless charging capability for compatible smartphones.
Buyers get a choice of Pure White, Deep Black Pearl Effect, Antimonial Silver Metallic, or an exclusive Midnight Blue Metallic. All but the white will cost an additional $2100.
The 2021 Volkswagen Touareg Wolfsburg comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, with deliveries to begin from March 2021.
