Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Volkswagen Touareg R is a five-seater only so it does not accommodate as many people as the seven-seat Audi SQ7 or Mercedes-AMG GLE 53, but it’s still a very practical SUV. Front space is verging on palatial and the rear seats are almost as roomy. 

There's enough rear leg room for adults who are six foot and taller, and head room is equally generous, despite the R coming with a panoramic roof as standard. Only the wide central rear floor tunnel is likely to cause a problem for a middle passenger. If your rear passengers fancy a snooze, the Touareg’s rear bench can be reclined to three angles, ranging from upright (to prioritise boot space) to seriously chilled.
