Volkswagen launches Exclusive trim level for the Touareg

Volkswagen has launched a luxury trim level for the Touareg: the Exclusive.

To live up to its luxury expectations, the Exclusive receives two-tone Nappa leather seats with a “cool leather” feature which reflects the suns rays, keeping the leather from heating up. The front seats will be heated and have 12-way electric settings. Other changes include leather door inserts, black headliner, stainless steel sill panel strips and wood trim.

While most of the changes are focused on the interior, there are also some styling changes on the exterior. The Exclusive will be available with three new rims: 19-inch Salamanca alloys painted in Sterling Silver, which come standard, optional 19-inch Girona wheels, and 20-inch Tarragona wheels. There’s also a “Chrome & Style” package, and the roof rails have been painted in anodized silver.

The price for all this luxury? A sizable 58,150 Euros, or over 81,000 USD, and that’s just the base price. Opt for a high-end engine or some optional extras, and that figure is bound to soar up.

Luxurious: The New Touareg Exclusive

Exclusively equipped model leaves nothing to be desired

Wolfsburg, 12 October 2010 – The new Touareg is now also available as a luxurious Volkswagen Exclusive model. The vehicle boasts a range of features including seats in a high-quality two-tone leather combination, 19-inch wheel rims and decorative elements in real wood.

In the Touareg Exclusive, high-quality seats in the two-tone leather combination “Nappa” are fitted as standard. The finely worked leather is available in the colour combinations Pepper Beige–Titan Black and Dark Burgundy–Titan Black. As well as being aesthetically appealing, the two-tone leather offers a special practical feature: it is so-called “cool leather”, which prevents the seats from becoming too hot in direct sunlight.

The leather seat system includes heated front seats with electric 12-way settings, electro-pneumatically adjustable backrest side bolsters and head restraints with longitudinal and height adjustment. Likewise inclusive are the leather door inserts, a black headliner and sill panel strips in stainless steel with exclusive lettering. Decorative elements made from real wood in “Olive Silk Gloss” round off the exclusive ambience of the interior.

The 19-inch “Salamanca” alloy wheels, painted in Sterling Silver, are fitted as standard. The “Girona” wheel has the same dimensions and is available to order at no extra cost. A further option is the extravagant 20-inch “Tarragona” wheel, which gives the Touareg a particularly individual flair. The exterior is characterised by the “Chrome & Style” package and roof rails in anodised silver.

The Touareg Exclusive starts at € 58,150 (V6 TDI BlueMotion Technology) and is available to order with all engine variants, for example the hybrid.
