The VW Touareg is practical for five people, has plenty of luggage space and is good value in the lower trim levels, but its interior quality and ride comfort lag behind rivals'. It also lacks the flexibility of seven seats. We recommend looking at the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Land Rover Discovery as better all-round packages.
The trimSee full equipment
SEL trim gets plenty of equipment including 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, which in the front are heated with adjustable lumbar support, a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment screen, a DAB radio, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, adaptive cruise control, ambient interior lighting, a rear-seat armrest, power-folding door mirrors, auto lights and wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, lane-keeping assistance, traffic sign recognition, a driver attention alert, and automatic emergency braking. Add air suspension and a couple of other choice options and it’s all you need.

It’s certainly quick (0-62mph takes 6.1sec), mostly smooth and should return around 34mpg on a run, but the cheaper, lower-power version is more than good enough.
