Beneath all that sleek sheet metal, every Touareg has a specially reinforced safety cage complete with anti- intrusion side door beams and hardened steel B-pillars. Surrounding the cage are crumple zones that help cushion and absorb the impact. So even if you never see them coming, we’ve got you covered.
