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.

Engine: 3.0 V6 TDI 4Motion

This is essentially the same engine but with the turbochargers boost tickled for a total output of 282bhp. It’s certainly quick, but you have to wait for the gearbox to finish scratching its head after you introduce the accelerator pedal to the floor mat. The lesser engine is powerful enough and more responsive to boot.
