The VW Touareg R-Line

The well-equipped and highly rated Touareg SUV just got a bit more sumptuous!

VW has unveiled the stylish Touareg R-Line which is based on their Touareg Altitude – and that’s already got a decent spec level.

But now the R-Line, which has some style differences to its fellow models, is chucking in extra gear worth £4,000 but only charging a £750 premium.

That’s quite an impressive package with the R-Line sitting on 20 inch alloys along with newly styled bumpers and side skirts.

The R-Line has an impressive panoramic electric sliding sun roof which runs the length of the vehicle (and I wouldn’t want to pick up the repair tab for it!) which makes the roomy cabin appear bigger and there is an electric-powered tailgate to help loading.

There’s also keyless entry, nice leather upholstery, an excellent sat nav and audi system controlled via a colour touchscreen, Bluetooth and various other modern additions such as iPod holders and zonal climate control.

The R-Line also has a stop/start system to help save fuel.

For their £44,000, buyers will get an eight-speed auto gearbox which brings a decent performance from its 3.0litre V6 diesel engine for the 204 PS while the 245 PS will cost slightly more at £45,700.

It’s on sale now.

Meanwhile, VW is also dropping prices for its CC range.

The German carmaker is reducing the cost in the range by £470 so the basic version now costs £24,050 OTR.

Choose the top-selling VW CC GT 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS and you’ll save even more as the price falls by £1,320 because VW have made the Adaptive Chassis Control an £850 option.
