Volkswagen's new Touareg 4x4 will cost from 38,255 to 56,530, with deliveries starting in October.

SE trim
The entry-level SE model gets leather seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, touchscreen satellite-navigation, dual-zone climate control, burr walnut trim and six airbags as standard. It comes with a 237bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel, which does an average of 38.2mpg and emits 195g/km of CO2. It accelerates from 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds and has a top speed of 135mph. All models in the range use an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Escape trim
Escape trim is also fitted with the V6 engine, and is priced from 39,055. Alongside the equipment found on the SE, it has centre- and rear differential locks, raised suspension, a 100-litre fuel tank, and a more off-road-focused 4Motion four-wheel-drive system, with a permanent 50:50 front to rear torque split.

Altitude trim
Altitude models are start from 41,705 for the V6 version and come with larger 19-inch alloy wheels, body styling extras, tinted windows, Bluetooth, and lowered sports suspension.

A 335bhp 4.2-litre V8 Altitude is available from 56,530 and is also fitted with finer leather, 20-inch alloy wheels, electric front seats with memory, a panoramic sunroof, automatic tailgate and keyless entry and start. The V8 goes from 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 150mph. Average fuel economy is 31mpg and emissions are 239g/km.

Hybrid version
The new 3.0-litre V6 petrol/electric hybrid costs from 54,995. With a total output of 375bhp, it can accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds and top out at 149mph. Average fuel economy is 34.4mpg, while CO2 emissions are 193g/km. Equipment is virtually identical to that of the V8 Altitude, but it misses out on the panoramic sunroof and 20-inch wheels.
