About the Volkswagen Touareg

Introduced in 2004, the Volkswagen Touareg is the automaker's entry into the mid-range SUV market. Developed with Porsche and sharing the same platform as the Porsche Cayenne SUV, the award-winning Touareg was named for a nomadic tribe that lives in the Sahara Desert. It was designed to excel in that rugged climate, and others like it, as well as in typical suburban neighborhoods.

The Touareg is available in three trim packages based on engine size. The entry-level model in 2004 was a 3.2-liter V6 engine that generated 220 hp. It was upgraded to 240 hp in 2005. Also available was a 4.2-liter V8 that pumped out 310 hp, and a 5.0-liter, 310-hp V10 turbodiesel that generated more torque than the V8, making it the Touareg's most powerful engine option. The V10 turbodiesel was discontinued in the 2005 and 2006 model years but reintroduced in 2007.

All three engines were linked to a six-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which was standard across the line. The six-speed was a bit controversial, especially with reviewers, who noted that it tended to accelerate the vehicle even when the foot was held constant on the gas pedal. The six-speed also could be a bit jumpy on downshifts, reviewers noted.

As far as standard features were concerned, the Touareg came with a long list that included a power moonroof, power windows, remote power door locks, heated exterior mirrors, heated front bucket seats, leather and wood trim throughout the cabin, multi-zone climate control, automatic on/off headlights, front and side airbags, cruise control, daytime running lights, and an anti-theft alarm system. Traction control, stability control, descent control, front fog lights, full-time four-wheel drive, and anti-lock brakes were also standard. The V8 and V10 trim packages added even more, such as leather seats and 18-inch wheels.
