The Touareg's first facelift was unveiled at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, and debuted in North America as a 2008 model. It now features the shield grille from others in the Volkswagen Passenger Cars range. The updated Touareg has more than 2300 redesigned parts.
The new Touareg features a world first in automotive headlight technology: the "glare-free high beam".("Dynamic Light Assist" at Volkswagen). Unlike an adaptive high beam system, the newest system continually and gradually adjusts not only the range of the high-beam, but also its pattern. The beam pattern changes its direction continually so that vehicles in front are not being illuminated, while the area surrounding them is being constantly illuminated at high beam intensity.
The facelifted 1st gen Touareg is made by Minichamps. Pretty decent finish and paint works. The interior is at about the average of Minichamp's quality. The headlights are well shaped and the Trims seem a little boring.
