R-Line Plus Pack Marks the Luxury Spot for the VW Touareg

An extra trim level never killed nobody.

Volkswagen says you won't find better than this throughout the Touareg range, but before jumping on the bandwagon, let's see what the R-Line Plus trim level brings to the table.

Apparently, VW took the existing R-Line trim as starting point and worked their way up. Therefore, the SUV's rims get a jump from 20 to 21 inches plus a new appearance called "Mallory." Area View (VW's idea of a 360-degree bird's eye camera setup) comes as standard, but they decided to stick with Piano Black insertions inside, along with "Vienna" leather upholstery.

The front seats offer 14-way adjustability, but customers can only specify the R-Line Plus trim level either with the 204-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine (starting at £48,095) or the 262-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 TDI powerplant (available from £49,895).

Last but not least, since the R-Line pack has been the foundation for the Plus trim level, other amenities include lowered sports suspension, the R-Line body kit, a panoramic sunroof as well as keyless entry and a heated steering wheel.
