My 3rd Touareg!
I owned 3 Tribeca Subaru and 1 Audi Q5; they were too small. The Touareg is just right; it doesn't bump my head on the lift gate. There is just my wife and me and for us it is a perfect fit. I was surprised at the good acceleration and disappointed with the low end torque since my two other Touaregs were the 3.0 diesels. I think the air resources agencies have an aim to get rid of diesels.
Perfect Car with Two Small Exceptions
After having this car for a year, no issues and my previous comments stand... This is my second Touareg after driving a 2005 into the ground. Huge improvements in interior luxury/features and acceleration. It's about the perfect car for my needs. Big enough to fit my family of five comfortably, though probably not for long drives. Impressive interior with very high quality parts and styling with beautiful huge oversized sunroof - looks like the Porsche Cayenne it is based on at almost half the price. Quick, steady acceleration for such a heavy car and great ride...I've been sneaking up to 80 or 85 mph accidentally a few times because it rides so smoothly. The two small issues are 1) no CD player (that is probably me resisting change) and 2) no USB port, just bluetooth. For the CD player there is a media port in the center console that I plugged in a portable CD player, but it's a bit cumbersome to use. For the USB I guess I can live with just the Bluetooth and an outlet, but you'd think they could drop a USB in the center console for easy charging. There's a regular outlet on the back of the console but it's not easy to access when driving. Maintenance and reliability are good so far - not a single issue in one year and 15,000 miles. Altogether this is an exceptional car that looks great, feels great, drives great and has about every feature you'd want. Highly recommend.
Really love the vehicle
I would buy another one!!

2017 Volkswagen Touareg video

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Edmunds editor, Travis Langness, and this is an expert rundown of the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg. The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg carries over essentially unchanged from the previous model year. And when it was first introduced almost a decade ago, this was a pretty borderline luxury vehicle. The fit and finish the interior is really nice, but the truth is the class of vehicles around it has become super impressive over its lifespan. And it's looking less and less like a class leader. The Touareg still has a couple of great things going for it. It's got a massive tow rating and maxes out at over 7,700 pounds, which is more than most mid-sized trucks can say. So that's pretty impressive for the class. In the back there's plenty of room in the second row. There's not a third row available, that's another ding against the Touareg. A lot of SUV's in this class have an available third row, even if it's cramped. And up front there's a lot of likeable materials, there's comfortable seats both in the front and the back seat. A lot of good comfort for adults. You can definitely fit four people in there. But the infotainment system is a little bit out of date. Even though it does come with some of the latest stuff like Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, the graphics certainly aren't as appealing as some competitors. And neither are some of the buttons in the dash. They feel a little bit old. Bottom line with the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is that it's got an impressive tow rating. It's got decent interior space, and definitely a likeable interior. But we recommend taking a look at more modern competitors. Something like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Toyota Forerunner, or even the Dodge Durango. For more Edmunds expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe.

If you're shopping for a five-seat luxury SUV, the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg might not be on your short list, but it should be. The Touareg offers a luxury-leaning cabin and a long list of features, plus it's capable and very enjoyable to drive, attributes we'd expect from a premium-brand SUV. That said, its price reflects its stature. Though less expensive than premium-branded SUVs, the Touareg costs more than most mainstream players.

The Touareg's interior reflects its "tweener" status. The cabin may not look quite as fancy as some luxury-branded SUVs, but the Touareg matches them for build quality and material choices. Its easy-to-use control layout is tastefully trimmed with wood and chrome. The infotainment system also is easy to use, though it's not as good as the more modern system found in other Volkswagens. It lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, for example, and it uses a proprietary phone plug instead of a regular USB port, which means you have to purchase connectors from the dealer. The Touareg offers a roomy reclining backseat, and while cargo volume trails the competition, the boxy roofline makes the most out of what space it has. The Touareg offers plenty of active safety features, including blind-spot and lane-departure warning and a collision detection system with automatic braking.

All Touaregs are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. The EPA estimates the Touareg's fuel economy at 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway), which is about average for this class of vehicle. The Edmunds-timed zero-to-60-mph run of 7.7 seconds is unremarkable; many of the Touareg's rivals offer optional engines that provide quicker acceleration. But the Touareg's towing capacity, which is 7,716 pounds when properly equipped, is significantly better than the competition. Though the engine can feel strained under hard acceleration, the transmission shifts smoothly and the chassis is great, with steering that gives plenty of road feel and a smooth-riding suspension that feels stable and secure in the turns. Though the Touareg's all-wheel-drive system lacks a low range, its sophisticated programming gives it plenty of grip on non-paved surfaces, making the Touareg a surprisingly capable off-roader.

The Touareg is available in three trim levels: Sport (which now includes last year's Technology Package as standard), Wolfsburg Edition (formerly known as Lux) and Executive. All come with features we've come to expect from luxury-themed SUVs. Which one is best for you? Edmunds can help you find the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg that's a perfect fit.
