2017 Volkswagen Touareg Pros

The Volkswagen Touareg is largely unchanged for 2016, though the Hybrid model has been discontinued and the base price has dropped by nearly $2,000, to $42,705.

2017 Volkswagen Touareg Model Highlights

The 2016 Volkswagen Touareg is offered in four different trims -- Sport, Lux, and Executive -- and each of these trims is offered in either V6 or TDI form. Touareg V6 models have a 3.6L, narrow-angle "VR6" engine under the hood which makes 280 horsepower.

Both engines incorporate direct injection and are hooked up to a wide-ratio 8-speed automatic transmission, but otherwise these two engines are quite different in character. The V6 is quiet, refined and high-revving, with good passing response, while the diesel is a heavy puller, at its best in the low-to-mid revs, which makes it a good choice for towing -- up to 7,716 pounds when properly equipped.

The Touareg is built with a stout unibody construction, and a tough 4Motion all-wheel-drive system with rear limited-slip Torsen differential (which sends 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels most of the time) is standard on all Touareg models. The suspension and steering layout, which comprises front and rear control arms, coil springs and variable-ratio power steering, are tuned mostly toward on-the-road responsiveness, with a nod to occasional trail use. With either engine, the transmission has a Sport mode, as well as manual shift control if the driver chooses.

Inside, the Touareg impresses as more of a luxury vehicle than it might appear to be on the outside -- or than the VW badge might suggest. While the design might look familiar compared to a Jetta or Passat, the materials are a step up, with walnut wood accents and available Vienna leather in Black Anthracite, Cornsilk Beige or Saddle Brown. Lux and Executive models include a panoramic sunroof that covers more of the roof and lets the sun shine in.

The Touareg can seat five comfortably. There's plenty of legroom and headroom front and back, as well as seats that are very supportive and sized for adults. The rear seat reclines and slides fore and aft 6.3 inches, as well as fold forward to provide up to 64 cubic feet of cargo space.

Touareg Sport models are the most attractively priced, although they come equipped pretty much as luxury vehicles, with bi-xenon headlamps, fog lamps, cornering lights, Bluetooth hands-free calling, satellite radio, dual-zone climate control, a touch-screen radio with eight speakers, power heated front seats, a 115-volt outlet, cruise control, a HomeLink garage-door opener and silver roof rails.

A navigation system with a high-definition 3D view and 60GB hard drive with 15GB of music storage can be added separately to the Sport. The Lux includes that system as well as a panoramic sunroof, heated side mirrors, walnut wood trim, soft Vienna leather, 12-way power front seats with driver memory settings, an electric rear-seat release, keyless access with push-button start and "easy open" rear lift gate. The new R-Line includes Lux equipment plus special interior and exterior styling details, as well as a sport suspension with 20-inch alloy wheels. Executive models add LED taillights, a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, Park Distance Control, 20-inch alloy wheels and Dynaudio premium sound with ten speakers and a 620-watt amplifier.

All models also include side-curtain airbags that cover front and rear occupants, plus front and side-thorax bags for those in the front seats, as well as anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and an Intelligent Crash Response system.

2017 Volkswagen Touareg Model News

The Touareg doesn't offer a third row of seating, but it's one of the roomiest, most comfortable vehicles with seating for five, with a luxurious cabin and a smooth, quiet ride. In plush Executive versions with the Dynaudio sound system, the Touareg is equipped and trimmed more as a luxury vehicle. Opt for the Touareg TDI, and buyers will get one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs on the market, with an EPA estimate of 29 mpg on the highway.
