Volkswagen has announced the official pricing of the new-look Touareg SUV as it goes on sale in the British market. Like its sister Porsche Cayenne, the 2011 VW Touareg features a new sleeker design and a new range of powertrains highly optimized for fuel efficiency, which also includes a hybrid variant.

You can have the new Touareg with a V6 diesel, or a V8 diesel or a V6 petrol-Hybrid. The base model powered by 3.0-litre V6 TDI and 240 PS is very economical returning 38.2 mpg while emitting 195 g/km of CO2. But if you opt for the hybrid model, which comes with a 3.0-litre V6 TSI petrol engine developing 333 PS and an electric motor generating 47 PS resulting in a total output of 380 PS and 428 lbs ft of torque, you get slightly less mileage at 34 mpg but much better performance.

And if you just want something in between, go for the V8 TDI which has 340 PS and 590 lbs ft of torque, and does 31 mpg. All new Touareg models have a new eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox.

The car comes with four trim levels – SE, Altitude, Escape and Hybrid – with a long list of features, but standard equipments on all models include leather trim, touchscreen satellite navigation with DAB radio, six airbags, burr walnut interior trim, 2Zone climate control and 4MOTION four wheel drive system.
