Active Safety Features

The new Volkswagen Touareg is working to protect you even when you don’t notice that you need safety technology to kick into gear. These active safety features are standard across the lineup.

  • Electronic Stability Control: This system includes Electronic Differential Lock and monitors all four wheels to ensure that you have the best grip on the road at all times, making adjustments when needed.

  • Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution: Along with your anti-lock braking system and hydraulic brake assist, you’re sure to get the maximum stopping power at all times as the right amount of pressure is given as well as brake pumping occurring so that you can come to a full stop each and every time you need it in various road conditions.

  • Hill Descent Assist: Preventing you from racing downhill faster than you intend due to gravity, this system automatically recognizes when you’re heading below and adjusts engine power appropriately to keep you in control.

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Always get an alert before you get a blowout or a flat on the go with this system that makes sure each of the four tires has the appropriate level of air pressure to keep you safe.

  • Automatic Post-Collision Braking System: When it’s been determined that a collision has occurred, this feature kicks in to help stop the vehicle automatically so that another accident or further impact can be avoided.

Passive Safety Design

Keeping you as safe as possible is a priority with the design of each and every Volkswagen vehicle. That’s why the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg was built to be strong and protect you in the event of an accident.

  • High-Strength Steel: VW used the strongest materials available to construct the frame of the Touareg, giving you the peace of mind that it can withstand a punch.

  • Safety Cage: In the event of an impact, the intelligent design of the Touareg utilizes crumple zones to divert energy away from passenger zones in the cabin in an effort to avoid harm when possible.

  • Comprehensive Airbags: The Touareg is covered front and back with plenty of airbags, including driver and front passenger, front and side thorax restraint, and front and rear side curtain protection airbags.

  • Intelligent Crash Response System: If the airbags are deployed, this system will unlock the doors, shut down the fuel pump, and turn on your hazard lights so that you can get the assistance you need.

Driver Assistance Technology

Volkswagen is up to date with the latest advanced driver assistance technology that monitors what’s going on around you so you can make choices better.

  • Front Assist: Both an alert and autonomous emergency braking are given to you in the event that you’re in danger of hitting the vehicle detected ahead of you.

  • Side Assist: When a vehicle approaches your blind spot, you’ll know before you change lanes.

  • Lane Assist: If you drift from your lane because of fatigue or distraction, you’ll be given an alert and steering torque to get you back on track.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Relax easier when this system monitors for coming up on unexpected traffic.

  • Park Pilot: Avoid dents and dings in the parking lot when this system helps guide you in and out of tight spaces.
