2021 Volkswagen Touareg R review

The performance car world is changing, and so is Volkswagen R, as evidenced by the arrival of the 2021 Volkswagen Touareg R, the first-ever plug-in hybrid model to come from the German carmaker’s performance sub-brand. The new range-topping Touareg indirectly replaces the short-lived Touareg V8 TDI, becoming the first model in Volkswagen’s flagship SUV line-up to wear the R badge since the memorable twin-turbocharged 5...

2020 Volkswagen Touareg towing review: 190TDI Premium

The new Volkswagen Touareg is a very real option for those buyers wanting a premium tow vehicle. We might not be towing a caravan this time, but we test the Touareg out on typical Aussie country roads.

The car names you've probably been mispronouncing this whole time

Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...

2020 Volkswagen Touareg 190TDI Premium review

At around $87K, the Volkswagen Touareg Premium is a compelling balance of upmarket goodness and value for money. But does almost $30K of options make it a more or less enticing proposition?

2020 Volkswagen Touareg 190TDI review

The new 190TDI drops the entry point into the Volkswagen Touareg by $10K. Does its cost-savvy nature cut corners on its premium SUV aspirations? Curt Durpiez finds out.

2019 Volkswagen Touareg v Toyota LandCruiser Prado comparison

There's a new Touareg in town, so we thought it would be worth sizing up the new VW with the number-one best-selling large SUV in Australia, the Toyota LandCruiser Prado. While it’s around $6000 more expensive off the bat, not excluding the significant 10-grand bump in options, the Touareg does pack a lot of punch for the money...

2019 Volkswagen Touareg review: More luxurious than ever

At last, there's a new 2019 Volkswagen Touareg on sale in Australia. It's more luxurious than ever, and VW's 5-year warranty bests most luxury brands. Should this be your next family car, then? Mike Costello finds out.

Review: 2019 Volkswagen Touareg first drive

It’s impossible to dispute that the only thing about the Touareg that isn’t definitively ‘premium’ is its badge (ok, and its steering wheel). It’s as good off the beaten path as ever, and highly competent when towing, but also brings new levels of luxury and tech. It’s almost too accomplished in some ways, especially if you’re looking from Audi’s vantage point...

2016 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI review

SUVs. I have a genuine belief that their success can be attributed to the blinkered reliance on American ideals, particularly when it comes to motoring trends. The consensus that indicates that these large, roley-poley, high-riding, dreary, middle-class shopping trolleys provide something that a station wagon cannot, is laughable...

2019 Volkswagen Touareg Launch Edition review

This adventure began with a push from Mercedes. As the owner of a 2015 mid-life upgrade GLE 350d, I was at the top of the list for info on the new replacement models. Somehow things went bang quietly before stock was available, and my only choice in the showroom was the four pot 180kW without air suspension. This was a yawn-worthy experience...

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 was so impressed by the interior and performance I test drove the Touareg. The price range was a little high for a new one so I bought a second hand vehicle with low km's...
