Big comfortable and capable, but the VW Touareg’s interior quality is a disappointment

Trim:

SEL

SEL trim gets plenty of equipment including an automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive, 19in wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather seats that are heated and have adjustable lumbar support up front, a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system with a DAB radio, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and automatic emergency braking. Add air suspension and a couple of other choice options and it’s all you need.

At the moment, there’s a pair of 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines to pick from. This 228bhp version is the entry-level unit and is paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. Performance is more than adequate and it’s very quiet at a cruise, if a little clattery at idle. There’s some hesitation when you’re pulling away from a standstill or waiting for kickdown on the move, but it isn’t as pronounced as in the higher-powered variant.
