Five awesome things (and one bad) about the Volkswagen Touareg 310TDI V8 diesel

It’s an automotive trick as old as time itself: if you want to make a car better, stick a V8 in it. And under the growing influence of downsizing, electrification and hybridisation, something utterly powerful, purely fossil-fuel powered, in that classic configuration of a bent-eight, is probably going to be something special...

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.
