Volkswagen Canada is pleased to announce details of the upcoming 2011 Touareg. This all-new luxury sport utility vehicle will be available at Volkswagen Dealers starting this November.

Longer, wider and lower than the outgoing model, the 2011 Touareg still manages to offer significantly greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions of CO2 than its predecessor thanks in part to improved aerodynamics and a significant reduction in weight.

The dynamic new exterior is set off by standard 18" alloy wheels, fog lamps and an available panoramic sunroof, which runs almost the full length of the roof. Also available are LED/Bi-Xenon headlights, making the new Touareg just as noticeable at night as it is during the day.

Power from the standard 280 hp V6 engine; or the available 3.0 litre TDI Clean Diesel with 406 lb. ft. of torque, is transferred to the 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system by an all-new, 8-speed transmission, coupled with Electronic Stability Control for superb all-season traction.

Inside, the all-new Touareg is just as well-equipped. The standard power front seats are heated, and designed to provide comfort on the longest drives. The 60/40 split rear seats feature a unique mounting system which provides for independent fore-and-aft motion; and recline, allowing for multiple combinations of passengers and cargo. 

Also standard on the all-new 2011 Touareg is the "RNS 850" Navigation system. Combined with a 60 GB hard-drive, this system presents its information on a full-colour 8" screen, and also includes Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity, an integrated Sirius® Satellite Radio receiver, and Volkswagen's Media Device Interface (MDI), which allows for seamless integration with iPods® and other electronic storage devices.

For those requiring additional flexibility, the interior contains a total of 4 12V outlets, and a single 115V outlet, to provide power to all sorts of today's toys and electronics.

Despite the long list of standard equipment, Volkswagen Canada will be offering the all-new Touareg at a manufacturer's suggested list price starting at $48,440, placing it right in the heart of the luxury sport utility market.
