Every so often, a VW model gets a few touch-ups. Even less often, a VW model gets a full redesign. In the case of the new 2011 Touareg, the latter is a more appropriate description. There’s a ton that’s different about this handsome new machine, but sometimes it just takes one detail to really change the driving experience.
To that end, we’d like to take a moment and focus on the new panoramic sunroof, which is a full 350% larger than the sunroof in the previous model, and comes standard in the “Lux,” “Executive” and “Hybrid” trim lines. Add a wind deflector to help eliminate turbulence and associated noise, and you’ll get not only a quieter drive, but one that touches all the senses.
Have you ever driven a car with a panoramic sunroof? If not, imagine a few scenarios, if you would…
Imagine seeing an entire palm tree, instead of a couple fronds. Imagine the warmth of the sun at mid-day, instead of just its glare. How about being able to feel the breeze off the ocean, instead of just seeing the waves crash?
So while it may seem like just another feature among many, we beg to differ. These are the things that make an average driving experience above average.
Now, we could go on and on about all of the new features and specs and options available with the new 2011 Touareg, but that’s what the press release is for. Speaking of which, there’s a link to it just below this sentence. Enjoy!
