This is my second Touareg in a long line of VWs and was bought as we have a large caravan which we take around Europe each year. The car is automatic and powerful which makes towing extremely easy and provides me with confidence.
The features on the car make it a wonderfully comfortable car to drive even for long distances and the electronic gadgets make driving pleasurable and less complicated. The Touareg is a spacious car and with its height off the road gives a good level of vision. The performance of the car is impressive; fantastic pulling power when towing as I have already said but also powerful and smooth at higher speeds when not towing. The automatic with Tiptronic gearbox gives choices of driving style but can very occasionally be a little clumsy, lurching between gears rather than smoothly engaging although this is only at lower speeds.
I do not have a great annual mileage and so the costs of fuel are not a big consideration for me, however, it is a costly car to run in terms of road tax £460 and mileage per gallon, usually urban performance being 21-23mpg. I understand newer Touaregs may be better with their mpg.
Despite these costs I would consider another Touareg for my next car and recommend it as a high spec, powerful and enjoyable car to drive and to ride in.
I bought this car earlier this year. I have never owned an automatic before. It has 8 gears and the workload of changing gear contiually would be irritating. The system is very good. It has a rapid response and leaves me to get on with driving. The automatic handbrake, engine stop, wipers and lights make driving very simple. Low speed manouvering in a car park lacks the fine control that a manual clutch gives.
It is extremly comfortable from my point of view and visibility is good. However, my wife finds getting onto her seat difficult because of the height she has to climb. I am unlikely to buy another Touareg because of this.
The car has a very high build quality, good sound insulation, extremely well equipped, really comfortable over very long journeys (500miles +). It is also a very competent tow car, our caravan fully laden is about 2.5 tons which it pulls with ease.
Excellent 4x4 ideal for towing.
Strong and powerful.
Fantastic driving pleasure for its size.
Hardly the cheapest vehicle to run but fuel economy averages 34mpg - more on run less when towing.
And at least its not a BMW, Merc or Audi!!
If you want to travel in comfort, then a touareg is the right car for you & economy isn't to bad either. Try one and see for yourself you won't be disappointed !
Great machine albeit thirsty. Awesome off road, smooth as silk on tarmac. Power v useful for safer overtaking and heavy towing. Will buy another
A very comfortuble car but low MPG is the main let down
