Volkswagen Touareg Overview

The Touareg has the feel of a sharp-handling, luxury SUV, with a plush interior and wide, supportive seats that deliver all-day comfort. 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. The cabin is quiet and access is easy, but our almost-$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.
