With the all-new Touareg, Volkswagen are spoiling us!
This is the new Sports Utility Volkswagen – a bit like the bionic man, here – it is longer, wider and when the 4.0 V8 turbodiesel and the 336bhp 3.0 petrol engine arrive (towards the end of 2018), it will be faster than its predecessor. Entry level prices are a snip at €66K – but the R-line model (with panoramic sunroof, 20” alloys and a sportier look) is the pick – despite parting you with well in excess of €80,000 once you order the add-ons. Space inside for five comfortable adults, a huge boot, the advantageous driver’s position (the main reason SUVs are a big deal these days) and accomplished handling on our roads all add up. As does the VW ‘’flagship’’ tag – the Tourareg is jammed full of all the mod cons: from the 15” dash touch screen to the 20 or more "driver assist" systems on board. See, at VW driving is second nature.
