Volkswagen introduced a new R-Line Touareg at the recent Quatar Motor show. Featuring an aggressive design which could be seen on the Scirocco R, the package also includes a sport-tuned suspension as well as modified front and rear fascias, side skirts, and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.
More, are the additional bits of chrome trim, a matte-black diffuser, and 20-inch lightweight Mallory wheels.
On the inside, aluminum trim is fitted as well as a heated steering wheel, stainless steel pedals, and stainless steel door entry guards. And wait, there’s more! Two-tone Nappa leather sport seats are available with 12-way power adjustable sections!
And that’s about it. Expect the package to cost about $2k extra over the base price. But if you want a Touareg Hybrid with the R-Line package – sorry, your’e out of luck.
