Volkswagen Touareg Overview

The Touareg is an agile, solid, well-finished SUV with comfortable seats and a plush interior. The V6 turbodiesel, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, pulls effortlessly and returned 24 mpg overall in our tests. Its towing capacity is generous. The low-speed ride is overly firm, but it's steady on the highway. At its handling limits, some body lean is evident. The cabin is quiet and access is easy, but our nearly-$50,000 Touareg lacked some common luxury features, such as a sunroof. The hybrid is the top-of-the-line version. It is quick and shuts off the engine when coasting, even at highway speeds. Reliability has improved to average.
