The facelifted Volkswagen Touareg has been unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show 2014. The Touareg receives a mid-life facelift gaining a slightly newer look with a revised engine range. We took a closer look!
The front-end design of the Touareg now features larger headlights, bi-xenon is standard across the range. A deeper radiator grille with four instead of two horizontal fins and a reprofiled front bumper give the facelift Touareg a distinct look. At the rear, the new rear bumper is wider and incorporates a new diffuser between twin tailpipes and LED rear foglights. There is a new door mirror cap and a new range of wheel designs and exterior paint colours.
The mid-life facelift was made necessary by the requirement to upgrade the V6 TDI engines. They now comply with EU6 emissions, thanks in part to the use of a new SCR-DPF catalytic converter module which uses AdBlue to reduce emissions. The entry level 3.0-litre V6 TDI remains at 204 hp, while the previous 245 hp unit now offers 258 hp.
