Standard features include two-tone leather interior, wood trim, 19-inch Esperance alloy wheels, four-wheel steering, memory for mirrors, front seats and electric steering column, and manoeuvre braking, and roof rails that you can attach an awning to.
Driver-assist tech includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, a surround-view monitor, park assist plus and automatic reverse braking.
As mentioned, the Adventure off-road system has gravel and sand settings, a tyre-pressure-monitoring system, a 90-litre fuel tank (15 litres more than a standard Touareg), heavier-duty underbody protection and more.
This vehicle is also fitted with Adventure package one (fitted RRP is $2790) and includes a towbar, luggage compartment tray, and front and rear mud-flaps. (There’s even a little Adventure badge to remind you of what this vehicle is.)

Another option is the $8000 Innovision Package, which includes a 15-inch colour touch-screen display with smartphone style HMI, configurable home screen and proximity sensor, Gesture Control, windshield projected colour head-up display, and illuminated stainless-steel scuff plates.
