Volkswagen has updated the 3.0 litre V6 TDI engine installed in the Volkswagen Touareg with a version that puts out more power, torque, and yet emits less CO2 pollution – 262g/km versus 278g/km.
The new engine now makes 240 PS, which is 15 PS more than before. Peak torque has been raised by 10% from 500Nm to 550Nm. Thanks to the increased power and torque, 0 to 100km/h acceleration times now take 8.3 seconds, a drop of 0.9 seconds from the previous 9.2 seconds figure.
The new engine is Euro 5 compliant and features a Diesel Paritculate Filter.
