This version of the Touareg is a luxury SUV with a quiet and plush interior imparting a truly premium ambiance. It delivers agile handling, a firm, steady ride, ample interior room and very comfortable seats. A 3.6-liter gasoline V6 is standard. We tested the diesel version, which proved to be smooth-running and muscular. It delivered a healthy dose of effortless mid-range punch, particularly lending itself to towing.

    Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

    VITO M., NY (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)


    Anonymous, QC (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Powerful, quiet, efficient. We use it primarily for towing a recreation trailer (Airstream) and it does a fine job, never any trouble climbing hills or with handling"

    JOHN D., CA (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "I think this is a great car. Outstanding fuel economy, fun to drive, quality interior and ideal size."

    Anonymous, VA (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "The Toureg is a fun vehicle to drive. It handles well, accelerates quickly and handles the Colorado mountains very well."

    VALERIE H., CO (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Feels very tight and secure. Tremendous torque for passing. 30 mpg on the highway. Quiet car, best I've had."

    Anonymous, WA (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "It may not be the fastest vehicle off the line but it is unmatched in passing with TDI engine. Lets just say there is a speed limiter on this vehicle for a reason."

    Anonymous, AB (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Handling and towing ability."

    R L., CA (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)


    Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

    What Owners Say

    "The front seats are too long (front to back) for the average woman. Much less comfortable than the seats in my previous vehicle, a Honda Odyssey."

    ANNA M., TX (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Seats are extremely comfortable. Road noise is unheard. Ride is sound, safe and secure,"

    Anonymous, TX (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Not as high quality as the previous generation Touareg. Switchgear feels cheap,seat rocks in its channel, cheaper materials overal"

    DANIEL M., DE (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Seats are very comfortable and wider than most other similar sized vehicles. Climate control works great in both summer and winter. It is the quietest riding vehicle that I have ever owned. The AWD system is the best out there. Had to demonstrate several times to people who think studded tires are the best for snow and ice. Good ice radials made them think again. Very smooth ride and very comfortable on long trips."

    Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

    What Owners Say

    "I am very disappointed with the VW Emissions Scandal. I thought I was helping the planet buying this car, now I find out I am one of the worst polluters. I am also dissatisfied with VW service and their arrogance."

    PAUL M., QC (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "I did not get what I paid for and the EPA and DOJ are delaying my warranty compensation."

    DENNIS F., OR (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    "Volkswagen Touareg quality is there, but not quite as good as the Audi in comparison for interior finish with the leather upholstery. I guess you really pay for what you receive."

    Anonymous, BC (2014 Volkswagen Touareg)

    Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
