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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"The V6 diesel is an amazing engine, it has the power and acceleration of a peppy gas engine, but an amazing mpg for a 5500# vehicle. 29 mpg on the highway is normal. I don't give a rip about the emission flap because climate change is nonsense"

LAUREN S., OR (2015 Volkswagen Touareg)

"best car I have ever driven I have had Cadillac's in the past"

Anonymous, IL (2015 Volkswagen Touareg)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The seats look comfortable but they are way too firm for long trips and cause the driver to become sore and tired. Our Lexus is much more comfortable. Also the rattles that VW refuses to fix make the driving experience distracting."

GEORGE O., CA (2015 Volkswagen Touareg)

"very comfortable for long distance travel"

LEE S., MA (2015 Volkswagen Touareg)

"Comfort Mpg"

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.
