The Touareg’s interior offers an upscale cabin, an abundance of high-quality materials, plus plenty of cargo space, the front seats are very comfortable full day of driving.
The Touareg’s ride is more sporty than comfortable, there is minimal body lean and we found it to be a very comfortable ride that offered a tight turning radius, responsive steering that was very precise and great power.
The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is offered in Sport, Lux, R-Line, Executive and Hybrid trim levels. All but the Hybrid offers either a gasoline (VR6) or diesel (TDI) V6 engine.
