So far, we only have CO2 emissions and fuel economy figures for the 282bhp V6 diesel. With the Touareg as new as it is, figures of 182g/km and 40.9mpg seem a little on the high side, although that’s partly down to the new testing procedure that was introduced in late 2017.
As for pricing and specifications, all we know at this stage is that three trims will be offered: SEL, R-line and R-line Tech, although we don’t yet know what kit you’ll get as standard. If the rest of the Volkswagen range is used as a guide, SEL will probably have all the toys you’ll ever need.
Although the Touareg hasn't been crash tested by Euro NCAP, the Audi Q7 on which it's based scored the full five stars. As for reliability, this car's predecessor was the most dependable among luxury SUVs of all ages in our latest survey.
