The first Volkswagen to be offered with a night-time assistance system, the 2019 Touareg can be had with an optional Night Vision system featuring a thermal imaging camera capable of detecting people and animals. Upon detection, the subject is highlighted in color on a black and white image, with the color depending on the level of risk: green or red. The image is shown on the 12-inch fully digital driver’s display, and if the Night Vision detects a hazard, the person behind the wheel is warned via an indicator on the instrument cluster or through the (optional) head-up display.
