Maju Motors Sdn Bhd, the importer of Volkswagen and Skoda vehicles in Brunei Darussalam, launched the third-generation Volkswagen Touareg during an elegant event at its showroom in Beribi last night.

Maju Motors Executive Director Awangku Mohamad Abdul Aziz bin Pengiran Ratna Wijaya Brigadier General (Rtd) Pengiran Haji Hasnan unveiled two variants of the SUV – Touareg Elegance and Touareg R-Line.

Maju Motors Chairman Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Ratna Wijaya Brigadier General (Rtd) Pengiran Haji Hasnan bin Pengiran Ahmad and Maju Motors founder Dr Chan Sui Kiat also attended. The vehicle comes equipped with the absolute latest in technology and sophistication, which redefines luxury and performance as well as improves safety features.

The vehicles make for a stylish, spacious and safe family SUV that’s worthy of consideration.

A 3.0-litre V6 TSI engine gives the Touareg 340 horsepower, enough to send it galloping to 100km/h in a speedy 5.9 seconds with the eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox.

The interior includes a vast 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the dashboard and a 12.3-inch digital instrument displays which is complemented with a multi-colour ambient lighting. The Touareg’s design has also been sharpened with more powerful and svelte lines that add an air of sophistication and modernity.

It measures 44mm wider and 77mm longer than its second-generation brother, along with a large 810 litre boot (113 litres bigger than its predecessor).
