The substantial Touareg has the feel of a premium SUV, with sharp handling and a luxurious interior with wide, supportive seats that deliver all-day comfort. The only engine is a 3.6-liter V6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. In our tests of the now-discontinued V6 turbodiesel, it pulled effortlessly and had a generous towing capacity. The low-speed ride is overly firm, but it's steady on the highway. The cabin is quiet and access is easy, but the almost-$50,000 Touareg we sampled lacked some common luxury features, such as a sunroof. The top-of-the-line hybrid version has been discontinued.

2011 Redesign Year
Volkswagen Touareg 2016
The 2011 redesign brought huge improvements in agility, solidity, comfort, and plushness. This new version of the Touareg also got more power, though fuel economy came up a bit short once again. Still a capable off-roader, with a quiet cabin as well as excellent fit and finish, the VW is also somewhat heavy and lumbering, which shows its age. The smaller and more accommodating VW Tiguan outscored it in our testing. A new batch of engines -- including a hybrid -- graced the 2011 models.

2004 Redesign Year
Volkswagen Touareg 2010
The Touareg is a luxury SUV co-developed with the Porsche Cayenne. Unlike most car-derived SUVs the first-generation Touareg was an impressive off-roader. On regular roads the ride is compliant, though a bit jiggly at low speeds. The interior is very quiet. Handling is responsive, with sharp steering. The cargo area is slightly smaller than the Passat wagon's and many controls are overly complicated. The 3.2-liter V6 gulps premium fuel and struggles to move the Touareg's 5,200-pounds, so acceleration feels lethargic. For 2005, the V6 gained 20 more horsepower, and a 3.6-liter unit replaced it in 2007.
