Ten Second Review

The focus of today's Volkswagen Touareg is improving economy and emissions, as lightweight design, stop/start technology, advanced diesel engines and even a hybrid model all testify. Despite this, it's still a big, bold luxury 4x4 with a classy cabin and strong performance. It looks a strong product if you can get your head around spending £40,000 on a Volkswagen.


The original Touareg was part of a twin-pronged Volkswagen assault on the luxury car market. Back in 2003, VW had no real record of selling cars costing north of £40,000. Then it launched the Touareg luxury 4x4 and the Phaeton luxury saloon within a few months of each other. The fortunes of the two cars were quite different. The Phaeton was handicapped by its similarity to the Audi A8, the notorious conservatism of luxury saloon buyers and diabolical residual values. It didn't really catch on. The Touareg, in contrast, sold steadily. Despite its mechanical similarity to the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen's luxury off-roader benefited from the lower key image that comes with a VW badge. With overbearing rivals like the Cayenne and the Range Rover drawing fire (often unfairly) for their perceived profligacy, the Touareg was more likely to slip under the radar - a quality that many buyers appreciated as much as the comparatively reasonable pricing. Today's Touareg is essentially more of the same, albeit roomier and more efficient.

Driving Experience

The engine line-up assigned to the Touareg kicks off with Volkswagen's 3.0-litre V6 TDI diesel. It's a 237bhp engine that will have ample muscle about it for most tastes thanks to nearly 550Nm of torque. If, however, buyers feel that they need to get closer to take-off velocity when powering up that motorway on-ramp, there's always the 4.2-litre V8 TDI. This engine is a bit of a brute with 335bhp and a smidgeon shy of 800Nm. It's more torque than in that world champion of waft, the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Despite these impressive oil-burners, the real talking point in the Touareg line-up will be the hybrid model. It's the first production Volkswagen to employ an electrically-assisted powertrain and it features a 3.3-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine mated to an electric motor. This is what's called a 'full hybrid', referring to the fact that the electric motor can operate independently of the petrol engine. It allows the Touareg to operate solely on electric power at speeds of up to 30mph. With both power sources working in tandem, the 375bhp Touareg Hybrid will get to 62mph in 6.5s and hit a 149mph top speed.

Design and Build

This Touareg is bigger than the original, a car which lagged a little behind other luxury 4x4s on size. An extra 40mm has been incorporated into the wheelbase bumping the vehicle's overall length up to 4,758mm. The car is no wider, which will help when parking it, and 20mm lower but more salient is the fact that this larger Touareg is actually 200kg lighter than the previous model. The styling borrows from the latest Volkswagen themes at the front end with a wide shallow grille, LED lighting and slated air intakes. It's the usual classy Volkswagen cabin inside and the Touareg should stand comparison to the best that the luxury 4x4 sector can offer in terms of its fit and finish. Unlike some of its contemporaries which have a seven-seat option, it's only offered in five-seat guise but those seats do slide and recline to make occupants more comfortable. The boot is a capacious 580 litres, extending to 1,642 litres with the rear seats folded down.

Market and Model

The Touareg range is divided up into SE, Altitude and Escape trim levels but the Hybrid model stands apart from this, acting as a trim level in its own right. All models get an eight-speed automatic gearbox while most come with satellite navigation and leather trim. There's also a High-Beam Assist function that dips the headlights when it detects on-coming traffic and Side Assist that warns of vehicles in your blind spot. Air-conditioned, massaging seats are also an option, as is full air suspension. Of all the Touareg trim levels, it's the Escape that's perhaps most intriguing. The original Touareg was a remarkably capable off-road vehicle with its advanced traction control system and a full complement of features other designed to stop it getting stuck in the great outdoors. On the current car, it's only the Escape that comes with the full package of mud-plugging equipment which Volkswagen has dubbed 4XMOTION. It runs to reduction gearing, two lockable differentials and five special settings for the all-wheel-drive system which can be engaged according to the severity of the terrain.

Cost of Ownership

Volkswagen has shaved weight from the Touareg by using lighter aluminium in its chassis and more aluminium in its bodywork. This, along with the implementation of stop/start technology on most models, should have a beneficial effect on efficiency. The entry-level 3.0-litre diesel engine records 38mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions at 195g/km. The Hybrid model chips in with 34.4mpg and 193g/km emissions while even the heavy hitting, V8 oil-burner gets 31mpg.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.


Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.

This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.

One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.


Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
