2024 Volkswagen Touareg price and specs


New member
The updated Volkswagen Touareg SUV has touched down with a starting price that’s cheaper than the car it replaces.

  • 2024-Volkswagen-Touareg-005.jpg

At the bottom of the range, the Touareg 170TDI has picked up key technology from higher-end versions of the pre-update car – including the flashy Innovision Cockpit that combines a 15-inch central screen with a 12-inch digital instrument binnacle, and clever matrix LED headlights.

The mid-range 210TDI Elegance has had its price cut by around $9000, despite picking up what Volkswagen claims is around $4000 worth of extra equipment, while the 210TDI R-Line has seen around $8000 cut from its sticker.

Sitting atop the range is the new Touareg R. It packs a plug-in hybrid powertrain combining a V6 petrol engine with electric power to create the most powerful production Volkswagen ever.


Volkswagen has taken the unusual step of cutting prices for 2024, rather than raising them.

  • 2024-Volkswagen-Touareg-003.jpg

All models are cheaper than those they replace, and all feature extra standard equipment.

ModelPrice before on-roadsPrice cut
Volkswagen Touareg 170TDI$86,790 $2450
Volkswagen Touareg 210TDI Elegance$99,990 $8250
Volkswagen Touareg 210TDI R-Line $109,990 $7550
Volkswagen Touareg R$129,990N/A

All prices exclude on-road costs.


The entry-level 170TDI and 210TDI engines carry over from 2023, but the Touareg R PHEV is a new powertrain for Volkswagen.

  • 2024-Volkswagen-Touareg-R-005.jpg

It’s also the most powerful production Volkswagen powertrain ever, with 340kW of power. That comes courtesy of a 3.0-litre petrol V6 making 250kW of power and 450Nm of torque, mated with an electric motor packing 100kW and 400Nm.

The Touareg R has the best claimed fuel economy of the range, although that’s contingent on having a charged lithium-ion battery pack as is the case with all plug-in hybrids.
