What could be better than a beautiful countryside setting, good company and the all-new Volkswagen South Africa Touareg? Thanks to all involved, our test-drive event was a great success.
Tavcor Volkswagen Port Elizabeth recently invited more than 100 guests to get behind the wheel of the new generation Volkswagen South Africa Touareg. This unique test-drive event took place over the course of four days at the Crossways Farm Village. Located in the Eastern Cape between Port Elizabeth and Jeffrey’s Bay, the rugged natural landscapes of this beautiful estate proved to be an ideal location for putting this luxurious and technologically advanced new SUV model through its paces. With six all-new Touaregs on site, our guests had an opportunity to experience the vehicles’ on-road and off-road capabilities.
We were excited to give our customers a chance to try out the various features that set Volkswagen’s new premium offering apart. Beyond its luxuriously designed interior and bold exterior, the Volkswagen South Africa Touareg is powered by a 3.0 V6 turbodiesel engine and includes patented technology that controls each wheel independently. This allows for traction and drives you forward even when not all the wheels are in contact with the ground. This vehicle also comes with six easily accessible and readily controllable modes designed to enhance the driving experience.
Making the most of the beautiful weather and stunning scenery, we also invited our guests to join us on a mountain biking adventure with a twist. Thanks to E-Bike Adventures, we were able to hit the estate’s trails on e-bikes. While we certainly got a work-out, these electrical pedal-assist mountain bikes made it much easier to power up hills and take in the view.
On behalf of everyone at Tavcor Volkswagen Port Elizabeth, we’d like to thank KPMG, Investec, Absa South Africa and FNB for joining us on this adventure.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to our hosts – Crossways Farm Village, Crossways Country Kitchen and Puttergill Farming – for providing the venue and treating us to hearty farm breakfasts; Tracker South Africa for keeping us hydrated; and Francarlo Designer Goldsmith for extremely generous lucky draw prizes.
