Beijing Show 2014 Highlights: 2015 Volkswagen Touareg

Volkswagen has dropped slow-selling V8 and hybrid versions of its Touareg SUV as part of a range of revisions on show at the Beijing motor show.

Although V8 diesel and hybrid powertrains will no longer be offered, Volkswagen has retained the 201bhp 3.0-litre TDI and has boosted power for the 242bhp version to 254bhp.

Myriad revisions have been carred out to improve efficiency, including the fitment of low-rolling resistance tyres and stop-start and battery regeneration systems. Both engines are EU6 compliant thanks to a new catalytic converter option that uses AdBlue to reduce emissions.

Volkswagen claims that 201bhp versions return 42.8mpg on the combined cycle and emit 174g/km of CO2, while the 254bhp version records 41.5mpg and 178g/km.

The 2015 Touareg features larger Bi-Xenon headlights fitted across the range, a new larger grille and a reprofiled bumper. At the rear a new bumper and diffuser is fitted. Other additions include a new range of alloy wheel designs, paint colours and shades of leather upholstery.

All models are fitted with a post-collision braking system and a coasting function integrated into the standard-fit eight-speed automatic gearbox. The car’s optional adaptive cruise control also now includes a city braking function.

The facelifted Touareg will be available to order in the UK in August, with first deliveries expected in November.
