The new Volkswagen Touareg combines brains and brawn in equal measure, and the end result is a stunning SUV that handles everyday drives without complaint. It's also a very intelligent model, with a range of electronic driving assistances that you'll swear can read your mind. Please get in touch with us to find out even more about the reliable Volkswagen Touareg.
With the standard 3.0-litre diesel engine, the Touareg will reach 60mph from a standing start in just 8.5 seconds, and continue to a maximum speed of 128mph. The seamless eight-speed gearbox helps to keep your drive smooth and relaxed, shifting up or down without hesitation or difficulty, and is supported by independent double wishbone suspension systems at the front and rear. The hybrid version of the Touareg has the highest towing capacity of any economical off-road model at an unbeatable 3.5 tons.
Alongside the impressive 3.0-litre and 4.2-litre diesel engines that you can choose for the SUV, there's the option of the Touareg Hybrid – a 3.0-litre petrol engine and electric motor combination with a lithium-ion battery. All versions include the automatic tiptronic gearbox, and deliver a reassuringly high combined MPG from the 85-litre fuel tank.
Styled with more compact overhangs at both the front and rear, the Touareg's shape gives it easy manoeuvrability over bumpy terrain and on steep inclines. A bright chrome-edged radiator grille completes the SUV's confident "face", and twin exhaust pipes flank the dynamic rear spoiler. Heat-insulated tinted glass is available as an option, as are non-metallic, metallic and pearl effect bodywork colours and a range of stylish alloy wheels.
Volkswagen has packed the vehicle with technology and safety features, arranging them all to blend in with the comfy design of the cabin. A touch-screen sat nav and an entertainment system nestle within the smart central console, and the model's Bluetooth connection lets the driver make hands-free calls safely. The bench of modular rear seats is unique to the Touareg, with child security locks on the back doors to stop young passengers from trapping their fingers, and everyone can feel reassured by the three-point seatbelts and airbag options for the model.
