What's the used Volkswagen Touareg 4x4 like?

On the road, the Volkswagen Touareg drives very well, albeit with the emphasis on comfort and smoothness, whereas the Porsche Cayenne (the Touareg's sister car) - or BMW X5, for that matter - is more sporty.

It can't quite match the superb blend of ride and handling in a Land Rover Discovery, but it's not far off, which is praise indeed. It's also good off-road, and much better than cars such as the X5 and Volvo XC90.

The Touareg's sheer size also makes it a decent family car, although it's strictly a five-seater, without the third row of seats you get in a Discovery or XC90. The boot is huge and, even though the rear isn't as big as in some rivals, it's large enough to take three six-foot adults in comfort.**
