Review

Eyebrows were raised when Volkswagen entered the king-size sport utility sector.

But a consistently strong combination of performance and value has won the Touareg a healthy 4% stake in the market.

Now major restyling, greater convenience and a hybrid option are poised to further extend the reach of the chunky model.

Backed by added refinement inside as well as under the bonnet, next-generation versions reveal yet another bid for higher market positioning
by the German company.

The Touareg will have start-stop and regenerative braking technology as standard along with dual-zone climate control and tinted glass.

Extensive options will provide dealers with major upselling opportunities.
