Volkswagen Touareg R 2021


Touareg R, combines a 3.0-liter V6 gasoline unit with an electric motor. The combustion engine puts out 335 horsepower while the electric motor delivers an additional 134 hp for a combined output of 456 hp and a generous torque of 700 Newton-meters (516 pound-feet). For the sake of comparison, the other hot Touareg in the lineup, the V8 TDI model, is rated at 416 hp and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) from its 4.0-liter turbodiesel shared with the Audi SQ7.

There are numerous hybrid-related settings. Among them is E-Mode, which allows electric-only driving at speeds of up to 87mph before the V6 kicks in. It also fires up when you request kickdown by fully opening the throttle. When the battery is running low, it’s possible to set the level of charge that you desire, which the system then achieves by using the V6 as a generator and increasing the level of regenerative braking.

To enable the Touareg to maintain its off-road prowess and 3.5-tonne towing weight (around 80% of customers tow with their Touaregs), the R model retains the Torsen-equipped four-wheel drive transmission with various on- and off-road driving modes. Unlike the Golf R and T-Roc R, however, it has no Race mode. In normal running, up to 80% of the engine’s torque can be sent to the front axle and up to 70% to the rear axle. As with the regular Touareg, customers will be able to order an Off-Road Package complete with improved underbody protection and extra traction control settings for driving on gravel, mud and sand.
