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...

In the case of the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg Adventure, you add some lifestyle-focused sorcery, and perhaps most importantly, affix a sharp pricing structure. You’ll know from reading any of our previous reviews, that CarAdvice respects the all-round ability of the Touareg...

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...

2014 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI R-line Review

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. The performance in a straight line is epic, when it arrives, because the turbo lag is pretty awful; meaningful grunt takes about 2 seconds after you put your boot into it...

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”...
