The most powerful and impressive version of the Volkswagen Touareg is here : Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI. This is one of the models of the German industrial group that confirms the bet on the diesel fuel by the manufacturer before it arrives at the disembarkation of the whole ID family of electric vehicles that will begin at the end of the year.
This equips the engine we saw for the first time in the Audi SQ7 , with eight cylinders in V and a lot of technology to improve its efficiency and pass the regulations about the emission of polluting agents Euro6d .
Powerful V8 TDI engine
The new engine of the Volkswagen Touareg uses a block of eight cylinders in V of 4,0 liters of displacement , supercharged by means of electric compressor and turbochargers of variable geometry . This combination allows that the own delay of the motors with these systems of supercharging is practically null, having thrust in all the range of revolutions.
Power and performance figures reach new levels with 421 HP of power and 900 Nm of torque . Figures that are complemented by a 4Motion all-wheel drive system and an automatic gearbox with torque converter and eight-speed lock. Thanks to this it is capable of reaching 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and a maximum limited speed of 250 km / h.
The suspension in the SUV, especially the large ones, is an interesting workhorse. The inertias and balances associated with a heavier and voluminous body with the highest center of gravity must be contained . Which is why they tend to be more rigid than those of their saloon equivalents.
The Volkswagen Toureg V8 uses a 4Corner air suspension system . This allows you to independently manage each of the wheels of the vehicle in motion.
In addition, this suspension system allows to control the free height of the vehicle to the ground , which can be lowered to facilitate access or load the boot, also to improve the aerodynamics and thus the efficiency of the vehicle.
On the other hand, it is possible to raise it to improve the off-road angles of the model and face more complex obstacles without damaging the body .
Equipped with comfort and safety
The Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI incorporates as standard the Elegance package , focused on cold colors with metallic decorations. Among the optionals is the Atmosphere package focused on noble materials and warmer or natural colors.
From the factory you will arrive with Vienna leather upholstery, with Innovision Cockpit digital instrumentation , made with a 12.3-inch screen and automatic dimming mirrors associated with smart LED headlights (Volkswagen calls it the Light & Sight package). To this we must add the 19-inch wheels.
Security is not left behind with a pack of attendees . This consists of a pedestrian detection system with automatic emergency braking , night vision. To which we must add the most common such as cross traffic alert , intelligent adaptive cruise control or blind spot control.
