Making their United Kingdom debut to the public, Volkswagen introduced three new vehicles in Essex.
The first of these is the sporty R32, one of the most aggressive cars ever built by VW. With 240 hp and 236 lbs. ft of torque, the R32 launches from 0-60 mph in a scant 6.4 seconds.
A six-speed manual transmission provides crisp, accurate shifts while 4MOTION all-wheel drive delivers a safe and controlled on road experience. Underneath, the fully independent suspension works in combination with 18” multi-spoke alloy wheels, while at all four corners, blue four-piston caliper brakes haul the R32 back down to zero in a hurry.
The exterior of the R32 is both aggressive and subtle. Excitement is provided via the front grille, side skirts and rear spoiler, along with the lowered appearance. The restrained look is the bi-product of classic design. Nothing in the R32’s exterior screams sports car, it’s understood from the moment it catches your eye.
Inside the R32 is all about the business of going fast in style. Full bucket racing seats grab every inch of your frame and almost dare you find an uncomfortable position. Alloy pedals, a leather shifter knob, three spoke steering wheel and easy to read gauges add to the thrill ride.
The R32 is an instant classic. Expect this Volkswagen to be priced just shy of $30,000.
The second new vehicle to be introduced is not so much a new vehicle, but a new engine in a relative new comer to the SUV market. The Volkswagen Touareg is already meeting the demands of consumers in North America, and with the introduction here of the V-10 diesel, sales should continue to climb.
At 310 hp and a ridiculous 553 lbs. ft of torque, the new diesel Touareg is capable of towing almost anything you can think of. Throw in 4MOTION all-wheel drive, a 6-speed automatic transmission and the combination is even more unfair to the competition. Electronic Stabilization with brake assist and Hill Descent and Climb Assist are also included.
Inside the Touareg is a fully functional luxury cruise liner on wheels. With all the amenities you would expect in a vehicle of this size and stature, the inside of the Touareg is as capable of standing up to scrutiny as the exterior is capable of taking on the toughest terrain.
Volkswagen plans to start selling the Touareg V10 TDI at £57,800.
Third and certainly not least, Volkswagen now offers 4MOTION all-wheel drive on the Passat GL TDI sedan and wagon. Previously available on only the V6 and W8 models, the decision was made to broaden the attributes of the Passat line and include it as part of their best selling package.
The Passat GLS 4MOTION sedan starts at £25,130, while the wagon will be offered at £26,130.
