2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited v Volkswagen Touareg 150TDI comparison

2016 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI Review

Originally I was looking at a Land Rover Discovery or a Mercedes-Benz, The Touareg wasn't even under consideration until my wife got a Passat as a company car.

I love this car, but there are some things I wish were different. The price is eye-watering for a V8 TDI, $120,000 in Australia; a Volkswagen should not cost that much.

In 2011, I acquired a small business where I found a requirement for a vehicle capable of towing 3.5T. Upon researching the options available at the time, I found the VW Touareg. Here was a limousine capable of real work. There was nothing to compare with the “Tow-rag”...

2014 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI Review
