Specifications for the revised Volkswagen Touareg luxury SUV reveal the new model will be more efficient than ever before.

Two engine choices are available  a 3.0-litre V6 TDI with 201bhp and a 3.0-litre V6 TDI with 258bhp. Thanks to the introduction of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system using AdBlue, low-rolling resistance tyres and a coasting function on the standard eight-speed automatic gearbox, both engines are complaint with Euro 6 emissions legislation.

The 201bhp engine now emits just 173 g/km of CO2, 11 g/km less than before, putting it in a lower vehicle tax band than before.

On the outside, the new Touareg features revised bumpers and grilles, new alloy wheel designs, new colours and bi-xenon headlights as standard. An automatic post-collision braking system also becomes standard across the range.

Inside, the front seats now come with standard lumbar support, and there are two new optional wood trims, while the optional leather upholstery in the R-Line model is now available in two-tone Flint Grey and Titan Black.

Three trim levels are available starting with the SE, which features a comprehensive specification including 19-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation with eight-inch touchscreen, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth, leather upholstery, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights, parking sensors and chrome roof rails.

The Escape model features an advanced 4XMOTION off-road four-wheel drive system, with 50:50 torque split and centre and rear axle mechanical differential locks, higher off-road suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, 100-litre fuel tank, underbody protection, black roof rails and a headlight cleaning system.

The top-of-the-range Touareg R-Line features an R-Line body kit with bespoke bumpers front and rear, sill extensions and wheel arch extensions, 20-inch alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension, LED daytime running lights and a panoramic glass sunroof.

Inside is a black roof lining, bespoke R-Line seats and aluminium-look pedals, while enhanced equipment includes a heated steering wheel, electrically operated tailgate and keyless entry and start.
