New Gen: Lux vs Exec

Not sure what forums to post this question in...

Looking to buy a 12-13 Touareg as we miss our T2. Looking to get a TDI and in my search we are wanting the trailer hitch and pano roof.

How does one tell from photos/listings the difference between Lux and Exec packages?
Also...what did the Exec add...not finding good options breakdown on the google-tube.

I"m assuming the Sports are no-pano and no trailer hitch.

Thx in advance.

Thx. Is that from a sales brochure?

EDIT: Yep, it's a sales brochure. Adding those keywords to my google text found exactly what I was looking for!

I have a '13 Exec. BIL had a 2014 Lux.
Differences that I know of that the Exec has that the Lux doesn't are:

620 watt Dynaudio Stereo.
Heated Steering wheel.
Heated rear seats.
Dark walnut trim on dash and door panels.
20" Pikes Peak wheels standard on Exec. 21" Mallorys on newer models. Lux has 19" wheels standard.
120v power outlet - Not sure about this one.
Power folding mirrors - Not sure about this one.

Might be a few more options, but this is all I could think of off the top of my head.

2013 VW Touareg Exec V6, Black/Black Int, 21" Mallory Wheels.
2015 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium Plus, Black/Black Sport Int
2007 GMC Acadia SLT2, Metallic Brown/Brick Int

Sold:
2013 Buick Enclave Premium, Opel White/Black Int
2006 Mini Cooper S Convertible
2001.5 VW Passat GLX 4Motion

Thanks Great intel. I'm online shopping and see many sellers confidently saying it's and Exec but I don't see the 20" Pikes Peak on many of them. Were some people wanting the non-20" wheels. I would prefer NOT to have them. Any other visual tell tale signs when window shopping for an Exec? I want all those toys and the wife insists on heated steering since it would be her cannot get to work winter ride from time to time.

Also, my old T2 Exec had rear HVAC controls and a separate system in the back for its needs. It's unclear to me if the T3 Exec does this too. Are there independent controls in the back for the passengers? I'm seeing a few videos online but I believe they are left hand drive euro models (Dubai for example).

Our 2014 Executive TDI has the rear heated seats and the rear HVAC controls. Another feature that I think the LUX is missing is the bird's eye 360 camera setup. Our does have (or did have) the 20" wheels. I have a window sticker somewhere.
