This is one of the most comfortable of the many cars I have owned. Driving long distances is effortless and it has a good driving position. The engine is responsive but quiet even at motorway speeds

Bought this as retirement present for me. To cater for motorway travelling and local country roads, and on family farm. Comfortable, easy to manoeuvre, very reliable, quiet and easy on Motorways, 80mph is below 2000 revs. Has proved capable off road, but will clean up easily to become a luxury car. Off road driving course showed what it was capable of, car praised by instructor Service and insurance reasonable, nice 100 litre tank. Hide away tow bar, Consumption reasonable for large 4x4. Highly recommended.

Second Touareg owned has all extras,substantially improved fuel economy and road tax. Super comfort and quiet travelling twice a year across France to the Alps where in winter with winter wheels and tyres I have total confidence in performance on ice and in snow. Easy for elderly to access,big doors.Boot capacity excellent for walking aids.Higher ride allows good visibility

If you want to travel in comfort, then a touareg is the right car for you & economy isn't to bad either. Try one and see for yourself you won't be disappointed !

The car has a very high build quality, good sound insulation, extremely well equipped, really comfortable over very long journeys (500miles +). It is also a very competent tow car, our caravan fully laden is about 2.5 tons which it pulls with ease.

Excellent 4x4 ideal for towing. Strong and powerful. Fantastic driving pleasure for its size. Hardly the cheapest vehicle to run but fuel economy averages 34mpg - more on run less when towing. And at least its not a BMW, Merc or Audi!!

I bought this car earlier this year. I have never owned an automatic before. It has 8 gears and the workload of changing gear contiually would be irritating. The system is very good. It has a rapid response and leaves me to get on with driving. The automatic handbrake, engine stop, wipers and lights make driving very simple. Low speed manouvering in a car park lacks the fine control that a manual clutch gives. It is extremly comfortable from my point of view and visibility is good. However, my wife finds getting onto her seat difficult because of the height she has to climb. I am unlikely to buy another Touareg because of this.

This is my second Touareg in a long line of VWs and was bought as we have a large caravan which we take around Europe each year. The car is automatic and powerful which makes towing extremely easy and provides me with confidence. The features on the car make it a wonderfully comfortable car to drive even for long distances and the electronic gadgets make driving pleasurable and less complicated. The Touareg is a spacious car and with its height off the road gives a good level of vision. The performance of the car is impressive; fantastic pulling power when towing as I have already said but also powerful and smooth at higher speeds when not towing. The automatic with Tiptronic gearbox gives choices of driving style but can very occasionally be a little clumsy, lurching between gears rather than smoothly engaging although this is only at lower speeds. I do not have a great annual mileage and so the costs of fuel are not a big consideration for me, however, it is a costly car to run in terms of road tax £460 and mileage per gallon, usually urban performance being 21-23mpg. I understand newer Touaregs may be better with their mpg. Despite these costs I would consider another Touareg for my next car and recommend it as a high spec, powerful and enjoyable car to drive and to ride in.

A very comfortuble car but low MPG is the main let down

Great machine albeit thirsty. Awesome off road, smooth as silk on tarmac. Power v useful for safer overtaking and heavy towing. Will buy another
