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...

2021 Volkswagen Touareg 170TDI review

VW’s large SUV has a new base model. Can it still pull off the pseudo-luxury vibe?

The VW Touareg Adventure edition is designed to appeal to buyers who want to tow in comfort.

2021 Volkswagen Touareg 310TDI V8 review: Australian first drive

With 310kW and 900Nm, does this V8-powered Touareg justify the big asking price?

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.

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?

Volkswagens on ice (and track)

It's not often you get a chance to test cars back-to-back on the snow and the race track, but in places like Queenstown, New Zealand, you're as close to snow-capped mountain peaks as you are to the local circuit. When colleague Scott Collie came back from the BMW Alpine Experience having not actually experienced much in the way of alpine driving, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Volkswagen 4Motion 'Get A Grip' showcase, given the itinerary is entirely dependent on the weather...
