Scratch the surface of the impressive Touareg and you will find a seriously good off-roader which is also an excellent road car too. The Touareg has the option of air suspension to help bring versatility and anyone who does decide to go off-road, and many owners of 4x4's do not, should choose it to help them. If they don't, it's no real issue since the vehicle will not let them down under any circumstances.
Because of the vehicle size, there's a choice of 3.0 litre V6 and a 4.2 litre V8 diesel and also a hybrid 3.0 litre supercharged V6 petrol engine which is married to an electric motor. The V8 diesel is particularly impressive and it will reach 0 to 62 mph in less than six seconds and both diesels are very quiet to drive. When it comes to economy, the V6 manages a fairly impressive 38mpg while the V8 diesel will return 31mpg. The useful and responsive hybrid version has an economy figure of 35mpg. The cabin is well-designed and there's a touch of luxury too and with big comfortable seats the Touareg is incredibly comfortable and long distance journeys are a breeze.
There's room on board for five adults and the boot has 580 litres of space and by pushing a button, the boot size will increase to 1,642 litres by automatically folding the back seats down flat. The Touareg's backseat also slides backwards and forwards to create extra legroom. While the Touareg has been around for quite some time now, it still has a good look and is more attractive and better performing than many of its more recently launched rivals. There are six specifications in the range, all of which have traction control and the eight speed automatic gearbox is not only smooth but will engage the necessary gears without being noticed.
