Much has changed since Volkswagen's first SUV was named the 2004 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, but before the automaker can bring to market a more competitive compact crossover or non-luxury seven-passenger minivan-alternative, the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg X will mark the crossover's first decade. Limited to 1000 units, the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg X (pictured above) will carry a base price of $57,080.
For about $1200 more than the Touareg TDI Lux on
which it's based, the special-edition model adds chunky 19-inch Moab
alloy wheels, Moonlight Blue Pearl exterior paint, LED taillights, and
of course, Touareg X badges. Inside, black Vienna leather seats
(available on the regular Touareg TDI Lux) are matched by a black
headliner. Engineered ebony wood accents and piano black accents make
things a little different inside, while aluminum door sill plates that
light up are thrown in, as well. Volkswagen says more than 700,000
Touaregs have been sold worldwide, with 121,385 of those in the U.S.
Through the end of October, Touareg sales total 6845 units, down from
8077 units during the same period in 2012.
