The Volkswagen Touareg is a handsome and solidly built SUV that is as much at home traversing rugged terrain as it is navigating busy streets or travelling on lengthy highways. This large 4x4 also features an upmarket and spacious interior.
The chunkily attractive Touareg sports a number of arresting features, including 19-inch alloy wheels and plenty of chrome – on window surrounds, door trims, front grille, roof rails and elsewhere. Body-coloured fixtures include bumpers, sills, door handles and door mirrors, the latter featuring integrated indicator lights. Further illumination is provided by automatically adjustable bi-Xenon headlights (with courtesy-delay facility), daytime running lights, front and rear fog lamps and LED rear number-plate lighting.
The Touareg provides front-row occupants with six-way adjustable, lumbar-supporting and heated seats. The driver also benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel which is multifunctional and leather-trimmed. In the rear compartment, travellers can enjoy sliding and reclining positions. Other standard features include electric front and rear windows, two-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and four 12-volt power sockets. Boot capacity is 580 litres (seats up), rising to 1,642 litres (seats folded).
A 3.0-litre diesel engine is available with a choice of two power outputs: 150kW and 192kW. The former returns as much as 6.7 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 176g/km. The latter delivers the same fuel-efficiency and is also capable of 0-100km/h in approximately 7.8 seconds (0-80km/h in roughly 6.2 seconds). Each is paired with eight-speed automatic transmission and a fuel-saving start/stop system.
An eight-speaker sound system (with DAB radio), Bluetooth and SD connectivity, an RNS 850 navigation system and a voice-activated eight-inch colour touchscreen come as standard. A range of driver aids include parking sensors, Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and Driver Alert System. Passive safety elements such as three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points, multiple airbags and child-safe locks are featured as standard too.
