Volkswagen Touareg

Designed as a joint project between Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche, the large Touareg SUV shares its platform with the previous generation Audi Q7, as well as the Porsche Cayenne.

The first generation went on sale locally in 2002, with the second-gen car dropping in 2010. The full-time 4WD, five-seat SUV offers diesel engines across the line, air-sprung suspension on higher grades and full-time 4WD, with all four variants – including the 2017 Touareg Adventure - using an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

Pricing for the Touareg starts at $68,990 for the Touareg 150 TDI, while the Touareg V8 TDI R-Line tops the line-up at $116,300.
