Volkswagen is celebrating 20 years since the debut of the first generation Touareg, a new special edition of the third generation model called “Edition 20”. Exactly ten years after the Touareg Edition X, the anniversary comes with a long list of special unique trim and standard tools.
The VW Touareg Edition 20 is apparently distinguished by the new Melo Blue paint, combined exclusively with a set of 20-inch gloss-black Bogota wheels. The same treatment has been used for wheel arches and diffusers, matching the black exterior trim of the R-badged model in the photo. The new special edition of the Touareg features tinted windows, LED taillights with a cherry red glow, and B-columns with “Edition 20” badges.
