The Touareg is a large-sized fun-to-drive luxury SUV produced by the German automaker Volkswagen Group since 2002 at the Volkswagen Bratislava Plant. The Volkswagen Touareg which was officially launched in Nepal in 2010 is an already popular Volkswagen model preferred by the elite group of the society. Ever since its launch in 2010, the Touareg has become the new benchmark setter in the SUV segment, with its sheer power and luxury it has never failed to impress the audience and has raised the level of excitement among the car enthusiasts.

The Touareg was Car and Driver magazine’s Best Luxury SUV for 2003”Motor Trend magazine’s Sport/Utility of the Year for 2004”, Four Wheeler magazine’s “Four Wheeler of the Year for 2005”, and Over lander’s “2003 4-Wheel drive of the Year”. Now, the upgraded version of Touareg, the new Touareg-R line, the most powerful car produced in Volkswagen’s long history hits the streets of Nepal to make its mark and repeat the same legacy as its predecessor.

The special features of Touareg-R include Active Air Suspensions, All-wheel Steering, ABS Plus, and Differential Lock. The Air suspension can raise the ride height on command which provides more driver comfort due to the reduction in noise, harshness, and vibration on the road for achieving a smooth and constant driving quality. The advantage of having all-wheel steering in a higher speed situation is that the vehicle will be more stable, like when changing lanes, and lean less when going through a high-speed corner. The differential lock forces all wheels to spin at the same speed, regardless of traction. With features like these, the company claims that no terrain is insurmountable for a car of its stature.
