Volkswagen Touareg
As the popularity of SUVs grows, it seems that much of the original rugged off-road personality these models were known for has been bred out of the segment in favor of on-pavement comfort and drivability. Among luxury SUVs, that shift seems even more evident. The Volkswagen Touareg was one of the sport-utilities to cling to those off-road roots, but it's recently made the shift toward the everyday.

It's hard to argue with the results, though. The first-generation Touareg was a capable model known for its high-class interior, off-road ability and respectable towing capacity. But it was also heavy and earned subpar fuel economy. The new Touareg lacks off-road chops but is otherwise a superior vehicle that's more in line with what consumers want from their modern SUV.

Current Volkswagen Touareg
The Volkswagen Touareg has been fully redesigned for 2011 with a new focus on on-road driving dynamics and comfort. Compared to the first generation, this latest version displays VW's latest design language, which is most evident in its grille. Under the skin, the Touareg differentiates itself from past models by going without a dual-range transfer case, which greatly enhanced its off-road capabilities. The resulting loss of about 400 pounds benefits the majority of drivers who spend most of their time on pavement rather than dirt. 

Volkswagen Touareg Review - What the Auto Press Says
The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg ranks 4 out of 17 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 15 published reviews and test drives of the Volkswagen Touareg, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

Redesigned for 2011, the Volkswagen Touareg boasts a sharp new exterior, a luxurious and more spacious cabin, and an all-new hybrid model.

 

Braking system
Porsche is known for the powerful acceleration of its sports cars. But the incredible stopping power engineered into every Porsche is equally well-known. Equipped with new braking systems, the Cayenne models advance the science of stopping. The larger brakes offer excellent deceleration—even when the vehicle is loaded with five adult occupants, a full complement of luggage and a braked trailer load of up to 7,716 pounds (Cayenne with manual gearbox: 5,952 pounds).

Volkswagen Touareg

As the popularity of SUVs grows, it seems that much of the original rugged off-road personality these models were known for has been bred out of the segment in favor of on-pavement comfort and drivability. Among luxury SUVs, that shift seems even more evident. The Volkswagen Touareg was one of the sport-utilities to cling to those off-road roots, but it's recently made the shift toward the everyday.

It's hard to argue with the results, though. The first-generation Touareg was a capable model known for its high-class interior, off-road ability and respectable towing capacity. But it was also heavy and earned subpar fuel economy. The new Touareg lacks off-road chops but is otherwise a superior vehicle that's more in line with what consumers want from their modern SUV.

Current Volkswagen Touareg
The Volkswagen Touareg has been fully redesigned for 2011 with a new focus on on-road driving dynamics and comfort. Compared to the first generation, this latest version displays VW's latest design language, which is most evident in its grille. Under the skin, the Touareg differentiates itself from past models by going without a dual-range transfer case, which greatly enhanced its off-road capabilities. The resulting loss of about 400 pounds benefits the majority of drivers who spend most of their time on pavement rather than dirt.

The Touareg remains unchanged or sees improvements in other categories, though. With a maximum capacity of five passengers, those seated in back benefit from added rear legroom and a reclining seatback. The Touareg's interior also scores points for high-quality materials that lend it a look and feel that we associate with luxury-branded vehicles.

The latest Touareg features a choice of a gasoline V6, a turbodiesel V6 or a gas/electric hybrid. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard on all models. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, while the turbodiesel V6 TDI generates 225 hp and a whopping 406 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid variant features a supercharged, direct-injection 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine paired with an electric motor that combine to produce 380 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque.

Standard equipment for the base Sport trim includes bi-xenon headlights, a power tailgate, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power front seats, leatherette upholstery and a navigation system. Stepping up to the Lux trim gets you a panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery. The Executive adds a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, keyless ignition/entry and a premium sound system. These trim levels are available with either the gasoline or diesel engines. Opting for the Hybrid adds a power-adjustable steering column and additional front seat functions.

In our reviews, we've found that the Volkswagen Touareg is a well-designed crossover SUV that offers commendable driving dynamics. The Touareg's base V6 is a solid pick, but we've found the V6 TDI diesel more to our liking and well worth the sticker premium. On the other hand, the Hybrid model boasts the type of power and performance of a V8 engine, but its less-than-frugal fuel economy may fall short of some expectations. In essence, it consumes about as much as a V6 engine would.

Compared to other SUVs in this class, the Touareg comes up a bit short in terms of cargo capacity. Otherwise, the VW compares favorably to its competition as well as a few higher-priced luxury models.

Volkswagen Touareg Review - What the Auto Press Says
The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg ranks 4 out of 17 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 15 published reviews and test drives of the Volkswagen Touareg, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

Redesigned for 2011, the Volkswagen Touareg boasts a sharp new exterior, a luxurious and more spacious cabin, and an all-new hybrid model.

Though reviewers are divided about their opinions of the base model of the redesigned Volkswagen Touargh, they love the new hybrid model and the carryover diesel powertrain. The all-new Touareg Hybrid is estimated to achieve 21 miles per gallon in the city and 25 on the highway, which makes it one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in its class. On top of that, test drivers say its transition from gas to electric power is incredibly smooth. They even say it’s fun to drive.

"Early first-drive results reveal that the reworked 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has not only taken its place alongside contemporary rivals like Acura's MDX and BMW's X5, it also appears to have what it takes to compete against cutting-edge hybrid rivals like the Lexus RX 450h and Mercedes ML450 Hybrid," says Edmunds.

Plus, reviewers love the clean-diesel model of the 2011 Touareg as well. They say it's well worth the extra money, and adds some much-needed horsepower that the base model lacks.

Though it’s significantly improved, the 2011 Touareg is expected to cost about the same as the previous model. With a base price around $41,000, the Touareg is one of the more affordable SUVs in its class. Even the more expensive TDI diesel model, which is expected to start at around $45,000, is relatively affordable for a luxury midsize SUV. But the new hybrid model isn’t as good of a value. It’s expected to start at $51,000, which is high for the class. However, it still costs less than the Mercedes-Benz ML450 Hybrid, which starts at $55,000.

Though the base model is the cheapest, reviewers largely recommend its hybrid and diesel counterparts instead. The base Touareg’s 16/23 mpg city/highway rating is in the middle of the class. But while the base Volkswagen Touareg has some flaws, don’t entirely discount it. It’s nearly identical to its platform-mate, the Porsche Cayenne, which starts at about $4,000 more -- and can skyrocket depending on trim.

Other Luxury SUVs to Consider
You can save money and fuel by choosing the Lexus RX 350. It starts at about $4,000 less than the Touareg and has a much better 18/25 mpg fuel economy rating. If you’re considering the Touareg Hybrid, it’s also worth it to look at the RX 450h hybrid. Its 32/28 fuel economy rating is the best in its class, and the RX starts at about $8,000 less than the Touareg Hybrid.

Details: VW Touareg
As part of its redesign, the Touareg has lost its permanent four-wheel drive system. While the previous model was a competent off-roader, the new Touareg gets an all-wheel drive system that makes it more of a soft-roader, but is still plenty competent in slippery conditions. All models also come with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg comes in three trims: the base VR6 FSI, the diesel-powered TDI, and the all-new Hybrid. If you prefer the old Touareg, don’t despair. There are still plenty of 2010 Touaregs on dealer lots, and you could snag a great deal on one simply because a 2011 model is sitting right next to it.

"There's a lot of variety here with the three powertrain configurations, and the hybrid is one heck of a satisfying drive. This is a crowded segment, and VW stays competitive with the 2011 Touareg." --AutoWeek
“With the 2011 Touareg, though, Vee-Dub has not only acquiesced to hybrid demands but has also built one of the best gas/electric vehicles on the market" --Car and Driver
“We'll have to wait until the fall for final specifications on fuel efficiency and cost, but expect the Hybrid to cost about $51,000, whereas the venerable VR6 powered model will be priced around $41,000. The V-6 TDI, with its Hybrid like fuel economy, will start at around $45,000. As good as the Hybrid is, isn't the TDI the best bang for the buck?" -- Road and Track
“We spent a few hours in one to see what a Touareg reset looks like. Our first impressions: So good, this is what the first Touareg should have been like." --Autoblog
Touareg Performance - 8.2 (Very Good)
While the previous Touareg was light on power, VW has lightened the 2011 model by dropping the permanent four-wheel drive system. Now, thanks to that and an eight-speed automatic transmission, all Touareg models have strong acceleration. They are most impressed by the new hybrid model, which has a seamless transition from gas to electric power. Read More

Touareg Exterior - 8.0 (Very Good)
Reviewers love the 2011 Volkswagen Touareg’s updated styling. It has a more masculine front end and is lower and wider than the 2010 model. Read More

Touareg Interior - 8.8 (Very Good)
The redesigned 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has a more spacious and comfortable cabin. Reviewers love its refined style, even going so far as to say it rivals Audi for quality. Read More

Touareg Safety - NA
The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has not yet undergone federal government crash testing, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a "Top Safety Pick." Read More

Touareg Reliability - 6.0 (Mediocre)
The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg reliability score shown is the Predicted Reliability rating provided by J.D. Power and Associates. This score is based on trending the past three years of historical initial quality and dependability data from J.D. Power's automotive studies, specifically the Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) and the Initial Quality Study (IQS). The 2011 Touareg is expected to come with a three-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty.
