What we like:
Earth-moving torque from as low as 1
750rpm. Muscular exterior body that is accentuated further with those chrome ‘Tarragona’ alloys.
What we dislike:
Centre rear seat's legroom is impeded by transmission tunnel.

By virtue of its standard adaptable air suspension, the ride comfort of this SUV whether on a high speed cruise on North-South or pottering around town is excellent. Bumps and highway expansion gaps are hardly felt when travelling at speed over them. Even potholes and uneven tarmac are dispersed with little discomfort to the passengers.

Shifting duties are laid on an 8-speed auto that does the job perfectly. Shifts are accurate and seamless and it does it so well that its presence is hardly noticed.


The Touareg is perhaps one of the most competent SUVs on the market that combines impressive driving ability and comfort in one balanced package. And it doesn’t hurt that its chassis is associated with the Cayenne.

This ultimate evolution of the Touareg strikes a perfect synergy of power, space and economy. All wrapped up in an attractive, muscular body.
