Touareg and Amarok
The AllTerrain Track is the perfect place on which to experience the offroad qualities both of the Volkswagen Touareg and the Volkswagen pickup, the Amarok. During the 45minute tour, and on a course that is just over a kilometre long, your driving skills are challenged by a water hazard, stairs, seesaw bridge and a hill with a 60% incline.
The traction of permanent fourwheel drive is essential when venturing off the beaten track and negotiating extreme driving situations. The variety of technical features offered by these vehicles, such as the low range gear selector and the rear differential lock, will assist you in this fun driving experience.
In an introductory round an Autostadt instructor guides you through the intricacies of the track. Thereafter try your own hand at negotiating the All-Terrain Track.
TESTING THE OFF-ROAD CAPABILITIES OF THE TWO NEWCOMERS
Test the off-road capabilities of the third-generation Touareg with features including a revamped dash and control design as well as sharper front and rear curves. The new HD matrix headlights at the front and LED cluster in panoramic taillight design at the rear are a particularly striking design change. The chassis has also seen further development with a roof load sensor and innovative chassis systems fitted standard ensuring maximum travel comfort and optimal performance in the new Touareg. The new Volkswagen Amarok is another addition to the Volkswagen stable – a pickup truck fit for almost any terrain with its new technology, further extended driving modes, and more than twenty-five drive assist systems. The new model has seen significant expansion on its off-road capabilities especially in its body, chassis, engine, and transmission ranges. The high approach angle and increased ground clearance also enhance the model’s off-road capabilities. Take this magnificent pickup for a test drive around the off-road track and see for yourself!
