2015 Volkswagen Touareg facelift revealed

Volkswagen has unveiled the redesigned Touareg, ahead of its public debut at the Auto China show in Beijing this Sunday.

The Touareg facelift gets refreshed look at the front and rear, along with new features and trims and greater efficiency.

The front-end features now larger headlights with bi-xenon as standard across the range, a deeper new radiator grille with four horizontal fins and an updated bumper.

The rear shows us a redesigned bumper, new diffuser and LED rear fog lights in the bumper.

There are also new door mirror caps, new wheel designs and new paint colours, as well as new colours for the standard leather upholstery, new design accents and new lighting.

Updated technology and safety features include an automatic post-collision braking system, a coasting function on the eight-speed automatic gearbox and enhanced ADC automatic distance control.

For improved efficiency, low rolling resistance tyres are fitted, while stop/start and battery regeneration systems are standard.

Entry-level 3.0-litre V6 TDI continues to deliver 201bhp, while the previous 241bhp unit now offers 254bhp.

The 201bhp engine returns a combined 42.8mpg and 174 g/km of CO2 (previously 40.4 and 184), while the more powerful 254bhp unit returns 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 178 g/km, up from 39.9 and down from 189.

The V8 diesel and hybrid models will no longer be offered in the UK.

Order books will open in late summer with first deliveries scheduled for November.
