The Touareg is on display at the Auto Africa Expo and VW is evaluating the possibility to introduce the vehicle here.

The Touareg that is considered for local sale has a phenomenal 5-litre TDi power train. This V10 engine develops 230kW and 750Nm.

Top speed for this super SUV is 225km/h and it accelerates from 0-100km/h in 7.8 seconds.

The Touareg has a length of 4.75 metres, a width of 1.93 metres and it is 1.72 metres high. Short overhangs, ground clearance of up to 300mm, and a wading depth of 585mm provide the technical prerequisites for exceptional off-road suitability.
