What Car? says...

Since 2003, the Volkswagen Touareg has provided buyers of luxury SUVs a less blingy alternative to premium-badged rivals. At least it has until now.

Still, look past the in-your-face chrome grille and there’s a very sensible vehicle underneath. It is bigger yet lighter than its predecessor, is packed to the panoramic sunroof with tech and can tow up to 3500kg.

Not only that, the Touareg shares a platform with the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and even the Lamborghini Urus – all cracking cars. Although the Tourareg does not have the same level of firepower as its pricier siblings, you still get a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel, with a V6 petrol, a 4.0-litre V8 diesel and plug-in hybrid on the way.

So if you’re in the market for a luxurious SUV, stick with our comprehensive review for our verdict. And if you want to get yourself a good deal on a Touareg, don’t forget to visit our New Car Buying site.
