Compared to the outgoing model, the new 2011 Volkswagen Touareg is 200 kg lighter, more efficient and showcase a longer and lower body with a design that follows the direction established by the Golf Mk VI, the new Polo, and the New Compact Coupé concept.
Stop/start technology will be standard, and for the first time, a hybrid drivetrain is available as well.
Rated at a combined 375HP and 428 lbs-ft of torque, the hybrid model may be a miser, but certainly won't be a slouch. A 47HP electric motor supplements a supercharged 6-cylinder, and at low speeds the Touareg Hybrid is fully electric.
