Ahead of the arrival of Volkswagen's next-generation Touareg SUV, the carmaker has unveiled a special edition model to keep the sales ticking over in Australia.
With a new model due next year, the German brand is keeping the spotlight on its ageing off roader before it is replaced.
A new Touareg Adventure edition follows on from the Wolfsburg limited edition that went on sale last year.
The Adventure model is based on the mid-range variant that is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine that produces 180kW and 550Nm, paired to an eight-speed auto with power delivered to all four wheels.
Volkswagen has thrown in some 19-inch alloy wheels, new bi-xenon headlights, leather seat upholstery, autonomous emergency braking and roof racks compared to the standard model.
Its Adventure tag comes from the addition of a 100-litre fuel tank and air-suspension, just in case one of its new owners might want to venture a little way off the beaten path.
The special edition Touareg Adventure is priced from $79,990 before on-road costs and slots in between the $68,990 base 150TDI and the $85,490 mid-range model upon which it is based.
The Volkswagen Touareg Adventure edition is now available for order, with deliveries commencing in May.
