Article by Christian Andrei, on January 25, 2009

Volkswagen’s Touareg “Lux Limited,” which came out in 2009 during the Detroit Auto Show, features “Ayers Rock” 20-inch alloy wheels, coupled with size 275 tires designed to be usable in all four seasons. The limited edition vehicle also has exclusively tailor-made front and rear aprons, and side skirts.

A color lineup was also customized exclusively for the Touareg “Lux Limited” edition, namely the model-exclusive Biscay Blue, Black Magic Pearl Effect, Galapagos Gray and Campanella White. The Touareg SUV also features a comprehensive tally of features that are not exclusive to one model, but are available across the board.

With the “Lux Limited” version of the Touareg, buyers can enjoy those standard features and more. The interiors of the Lux Limited model are decked out in two colors. In one version, the leather interior is expressed in “Latte Macchiato/St. Tropez white” and accented with “Poplar grain” color.

The second version decks out the cricket leather upholstery in “Anthracite/St. Tropez white” finish, with the accents coming in “Engine spin dark” color.

This particular accent brings out a metallic aesthetic to the insides of the Lux Limited model. Both versions feature “St. Tropez white” trim for the door panels. Other standard features of the two variants of the Lux Limited include 12-way power seats.
