Off-Road Mode

The off-road mode refers to an additional low-range set of gear ratios. These make driving easier on difficult terrain and on very steep gradients. Together with 4XMOTION four-wheel drive in the Touareg, this function enables the vehicle to make good progress over rugged ground.
In the Touareg, the low-range ratio of 2.66:1 for heavy-duty off-road driving can be electronically activated via the suspension switch. This provides maximum drive force at low vehicle speeds. It enables the Touareg to achieve a gradability of up to 100 percent (45°).
