After all, the German SUV is one of the highest end vehicles of its type in the world. The "Lux Limited" - developed by Volkswagen Individual - now goes even one step further. That is because it always includes a two-tone leather interior combined with special interior accents based on the particular color variant. Version 1: Cricket leather in the color combination "Latte Macchiato / St. Tropez white"; where the center seat panels are kept in white. In this case, the interior accents are in "Poplar grain" decor. Version 2: Cricket leather in "Anthracite / St. Tropez white". An "Engine spin dark" decor with a metallic look and feel is used here. In both variants the door panel inserts are trimmed in "St. Tropez white". In addition, the driver and front passenger of the Touareg "Lux Limited" get standard 12-way power seats.
