Yes, the Touareg has had standard, full-time four-wheel drive since its introduction as a 2004 model.
The Touareg’s focus has always been as an off-road capable vehicle. The four-wheel drive system has an available low-range gear for tricky traction conditions.
It’s rated from the factory to climb a maximum 45-degree incline and has Hill Roll Back and Hill Descent Assists to help with steep approach and departure angles.
For 2010, the Touareg starts at $40,440 for the base VR6 model. A diesel TDI version with clean-diesel six-cylinder is available starting at $43,960. The V-8 option has been dropped for 2010, as has the “2” from the Touareg name.
