Volkswagen Touareg 4x4 3.0 V6 TDI 231 4Motion

Manufacturer price from:£49,095
What Car? Target Price:£45,440

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.
