Default VW Touareg North Sails Design

"Although Volkswagen isn’t exactly synonymous with sailing, the German automaker has teamed with North Sails – the world’s leading maker of sails – to create the Touareg North Sails design study."

"The exterior of the Touareg has been spruced up with 19 inch wheels, new fog lights and special blue reflectors. "

"On the inside, the nautical theme continues with teak wood flooring, LED lighting and white Nappa leather seats finished with aquamarine stitching."

"And just in case the path becomes a little too narrow for the Touareg, a North Sails bicycle is stowed aboard. "

I love the color of the interiors and the wooden look floor.

Looks quite chic, although would have been better if it was a Volvo.

Somehow I would expect to see modern Volvos with this kind of interior styling and its association with sailboats.

The spare wheel cover is the one which gives character to this vehicle. It should have been present
