New Volkswagen Touareg R

Volkswagen unveiled its Touareg R as its range-topping SUV recently, showcasing its most powerful production car to date. Surprisingly, it’s powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain, reflecting Volkswagen’s more widespread adoption of electrified powertrains. 

But as well as its punchy engine setup, the Touareg has also been given a host of tricks and features - which we’ll take a look at in more detail now. 

Exterior design

The exterior of the Tiguan R builds on the imposing looks of the regular car with a host of gloss black elements applied to areas such as the front grille and wheels. The trim for the windows is also finished in gloss black, giving the whole car a more undercover look. 

Around the back, there’s little to showcase the R’s performance, though some subtle badges do help to differentiate it from the rest of the range. 

Interior design

The Touareg R builds on the cabin you get in the regular - and very good - model. It means there’s a high use of quality materials, backed by the level of fit-and-finish that you’d expect from a Volkswagen.

There’s plenty of space to enjoy for those sitting in the back, while those in the front get a commanding view of the road ahead. When it comes to boot space, there’s an impressive 810 litres available as standard, rising to 1,800 litres with them folded down.


As we’ve already mentioned, the Touareg R takes the title as the most powerful production Volkswagen to date. This comes through the fitment of a plug-in hybrid setup, bringing together a turbocharged V6 engine and an electric motor with 14.1kWh battery. Together, they produce 455bhp and 700Nm of torque. 

With power going to all four wheels, the Touareg R can dash from 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 155mph, yet return up to 94.2mpg and around 28 miles of electric-only driving range. 

Technology and safety

The cabin of the Touareg R is bristling with technology, with highlights including a 12-inch digital cockpit screen that can be configured to show a variety of different readouts. They’re clear and easy to read, too. 

In addition, there’s a huge 15-inch central infotainment screen that houses all of the main media and satellite navigation functions. Together, they combine to create a particularly high-tech feeling cabin. 

Trim levels for the Volkswagen Touareg R:​

Since the Touareg R effectively takes the top spot in the SUV’s range of trims, there’s just one specification to choose from. However, it comes with a comprehensive list of equipment including a full sports bodykit, an eight-speaker sound system and adaptive cruise control. 

You also get 22-inch alloy wheels, an around-view parking camera system and automatic headlights with LED separate daytime running lights.
