Volkswagen Touareg Overview

The Volkswagen Touareg is classed as a mid-sized crossover SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) which is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Volkswagen. This vehicle has been in production since 2002 and is still in production today. This vehicle is named after the Tuareg people of North Africa. The Touareg has some great safety features, is very well equipped and are cheaply priced compared to a lot of rivals. It may not be the best ride but the steering is pretty good. It has good suspension, a good driving position and some very strong engines but the resale value is not that great. They are well refined vehicles but there is no 7-seater version. Does this sound like your experience of this vehicle?

Volkswagen Touareg History

The first generation (2002-10) of the Volkswagen Touareg was developed in 2002 as a joint venture between Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche. It is built on the Volkswagen Group PL71 platform, which is also used on the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. These vehicles are all very well built, and have slight differences from one another. The Touareg is a 4x4 vehicle which has some really great features, including adjusting the ride height to suit on or off road driving. In 2007 it had a facelift which affected the vehicles exterior, interior and technologies.

The second generation (2010-present) has some innovative design features including the first ever adaptive high beam system. This stops oncoming drivers from being blinded by your high beam lights. This is the current version in production.
